OK, not really a betting pool, as there will be no cash wagered. This is strictly for amusement.
The projected arrival date for FutureBaby is July 28th, which is two weeks from tomorrow. Of course, the actual arrival date could be any day in the next month or so. We also don’t know the sex of FutureBaby– our doctors do, thanks to our adventure with the first-trimester screening test, but we asked not to be told.
Thus, this a perfect topic for a blog contest:
Guess the delivery date and sex of FutureBaby, win a prize.
Eligible dates are between July 14th and August 11th, inclusive. Eligible sexes are “male” or “female.” (It seems silly to have to specify that, but this is the Internet…). That makes 58 unique possible guesses. If two or more people choose the correct date and sex, the winner will be the person who chose it first (based on comment timestamps).
The winner gets bragging rights, plus their choice of something small and tacky from Japan, or the right to dictate one post topic for the blog (that is, you name the topic, I’ll write about it, while sleep-deprived from having a new baby in the house. Fun for the whole family!). Leave your guesses in the comments.
(One date per comment, one comment per person. Void where prohibited by the laws of physics. Doctors who have access to Kate’s medical files (or members of their families) are not eligible.)
