    When?

    Here's one question we all knew would be coming. Get your guess in early...

    When will Downtown have her baby?



    I am going to go first and say Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) at 6:12 PM.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Thanksgiving dinner at 6:00 pm will bring the onset of labor at around 9:00 pm, the baby will be born 4:00 AM on Friday, November 28th.

    I think that the winner of this pool gets the baby named after their screen name.

    I still say the little bugger is going to come early - November 27, 10:00a.m. Sorry to ruin your Thanksgiving DT - maybe they can bring you some pie in the hospital!

    I'll guess December 1 at 6:00 a.m. Although, I hope for Downtown's sake it isn't until later so she can get her house windows replaced.

    You guys are too much. To help in your endeavor, here's the progress update:

    Actual Due Date - 11/29, but most first time moms go an extra week.

    Weight at 34 wk ultrasound: 5 3/4 lbs (and they gain about 1/2 lbs every week after).

    We're having ALL of our windows replaced next week (don't even get me started on that ridiculous timing, especially after waking up to 1/2 of snow this morning), so to avoid bringing a new born home to a house full of holes in the wall, burly men and sawdust, sheer force of will should keep this baby in my uterus until at least Dec 3, so they won't be releasing me from the hospital until the contractors are done.

    So everyone have a great thanksgiving and hopefully I'll be posting next monday morning from work.
