Baby! Baby! Baby!

It’s that time, everybody! A BABY Contest! I’ve been thinking about this ever since I got pregnant, so here it goes!

There was a bit of a wrinkle thrown into things because I will most likely know ahead of time the baby’s birthday, but we still don’t know the sex, or the weight, so that’s what I’m going to have you guess.

Send an email to with the following information:

1) Baby’s Gender

2) Baby’s Weight

3) And, in case of a tie break situation, please add your guess for the baby’s first initial. Two letters – one for a boy and one for a girl. These initials will ONLY be used in the event that two or more people come up with the same winning answer.



This is how it’s going to work – the person who gets the sex right and the weight right wins. If no one gets both right, the person who gets the sex right and comes closest to the weight WITHOUT GOING OVER wins. In case of a tie, the person who gets the sex right, the weight right AND the first initial right will win. If there is no one who does this, the person who gets the sex right, the weight right and comes closest to the first initial WITHOUT GOING OVER will win. If after all that, I still have two people who get it right (or more) well then, all will win and I’ll be expecting lottery numbers whenever MEGA is over 100K.

Here’s some info for helping you decide:

Pictures of my belly – taken this morning.

See how high I’m carrying? Great for bladder control, sucky for indigestion. Currently I am 36 weeks, five days. When I had an ultrasound the other day I asked the OB if the baby was big and she said, “not particularly.” Remember, babies gain about a pound a week in the last month and my baby will probably be born before 39 weeks.

So far I’ve gained a tad under 30lbs.

I was 6 lbs 2 oz when I was born a few days before my due date. My husband was something like 9 lbs 14 oz. (God bless his mother!) I’m pretty sure he was full term.

Not sure what else you need to know. Oh yeah! The PRIZES!

There will be ONE GRAND PRIZE! (One baby – one prize!) You will receive a $25 Gift Certificate from Blue Moon Fiber Arts AND a $25 Gift Certificate from The Loopy Ewe! PLAY ON!

Dudes! I’m having a baby!!!

PS – Happy Birthday Dani! WHOO HOO!


  1. Yay! I’m so happy for you! Looking forward to some great baby photos someday soon.

  2. Belly-icious!

    Hope you’re getting lots of family to blow love bubbles on that belly! Some people call them raspberries or a variation, but in our house they’re love bubbles!

  4. Your belly is so beautiful!

  5. This is so fun! Congratulations – I’m so excited for you. I’d be totally whooping it up, too. I’d be saying “Dudes!” all of the time! Wow! 🙂

  6. What fun! Thanks!

  7. Hooray for babies! Hooray for highridin’ bulging alien pods! 😉
    When I saw the first picture in the bloglines preview I thought, d@mn, the undersides of her boobs look all knuckly, I thought they were supposed to plump when you cook a bun! Then, oh…yeah. There must be something wrong with me. 🙂

  8. I love the “Price Is Right” rules and use them all the time. My email guess is on the way.

  9. We’ve never met…we’re far apart in age…I wouldn’t know you if I met you in the street. But I am sitting here with a big, silly grin on my face.
    Dude! You’re having a baby!! How cool is that!?

  10. Don’t underestimate the power of turning and dropping like a stone….you never know.

  11. The baby will be here soon 🙂

  12. Yeah!!!!!!!

  13. Woobula hooobula, what a belly! A nice pregnant belly! With a baby inside! As amazing as the ride has been, the whole birth thing, when you have that new to the world baby, now there’s no magic in the world better.

  14. You’re looking so gorgeous! Love the belly pictures… thanks for sharing them. Pregnant bellies are in that weird no man’s land between private bits and hands; some people are shocked to see one, others think they should be able to lift your shirt and look at it. Once you start nursing, if you do, your breasts enter that strange place, too. Actually, no… I think more people see my breasts than my knees these days. They’re totally not private anymore.
    Hope you’re still feeling well! I’m thinking of you!

  15. Dude- you are NOT allowed to use the title “BABY BABY BABY” till you pop… got it? Nearly gave this knitter a coronary… thought you went and had the baby!
    OH…. ignore this comment- you’re the boss of you’re own blog… but you know—-you freaked me out;)

  16. Your belly is so damn cute!

  17. Krista M says:

  22. Yay! Great belly shots. That baby is on it’s way!

  23. aww! BELLY! You’re having a BABY!!!! 🙂

  24. You’re having a baby? Who knew?

  25. You mother-in-law is amazing! My two were 8lbs14oz and 9lbs8oz and they were plenty big (big enough that I wasn’t all that sorry that I had to have C-sections because of not ever dilating enough). Can’t even imagine much bigger than that!
