The final countdown...You could be the winner

So it is finally time to start the count down for this baby. I am due in exactly 16 1/2 days (Sep. 3rd). I think everyone should vote and say exactly what date you think India is coming and also guess as to how much she will weigh.

A little background to aid in your guessing:
Jones was induced on, but born the day after his due date.
He was 7lbs 15oz and had a 14 inch head.
This whole pregnancy I have been having contractions...but they don't really change my cervix.
As of today I am dilated to only 2 centimeters and am only 40% "thinned"
India is extremely low and head down

There is all of your info...Guess away my friends. Remember, what date and what size. I think there will be a prize for the winner of each category, I am just not sure what it will be yet.

Oh, and if you haven't seen them yet you should go check our my prego pictures on Jen's blog. She took them this past week and she did such a good job!! Thanks Jen!

Yeah!!! I think India will be here on August 28th, which happens to be the full moon. This also happens to be the day before my big trip, so I could swing by and meet her. I think she will be 7lbs. 7 oz. because that is lucky.

My second guess, and the one that really feels right is August 29th. That is the real day.

p.s. I caught your crazy cold. I sound like a chain smoker.

I really like being the first to post on your blog. I feel like I am your best friend- or maybe the best stalker.

Rizzle said...

Sorry Ashtin I already guessed 7lbs 7 oz earlier today when I was talking with Jess. But since it wasn't on the blog I guess I'll let it pass this time.
Here's my backup weight: 7lbs5oz
Date: 09-04

Let it be so

You are the Dad. You win everything!

Kat said...

I'll put in for September 1st at 6lbs 11oz!

Hope you had a great shower! Sorry I couldn't make it. Family emergency.

Breanna said...

i didn't realize until now that we have the same due date! that's weird. at least to me.

i'd say India will arrive August 30th and will weight 7lb 4oz.

tara said...

i say it will be on august 25th and she will be 6.10 tiny girl.

Chris Alexander said...

August 23rd, 7lbs 2oz.

And it will be much MUCH easier than Jones.

Jess said...

A. Tara what are you trying to do to me? The 25th is Jones' b-day. That is the one day in all of August I do not want to have her.

B. Breanna, I too think it is crazy we have the same due date...I wonder who will deliver first? It would be crazy to actually have them on the same day.

C. My vote is August 29th (because that would work well into my schedule) and that she will be 7lbs. 10oz

Priscilla said...

I love guessing! September 9, 6 lbs 12 oz, 20" long

Priscilla said...

ps - and while my guess is september 9, I really do hope for you that she comes by her due date...it's hard to wait any longer i'm sure!

Gina said...

I am guessing that she will arrive on August 26th at 6:26 AM. She will weigh 7 pounds 6 ounces.

(Those are my stats, by the way. But in 1974, n0t 2007. It was a good start to a good life for me, so I'm trying to hook her up.)

Rizzle said...

What about 9-11? Anyone want that date? Jess and I have already vowed that if India's born on that date we're changing her name to Memory Nineleven Woods

...thats not funny is it?

Breanna said...

rizzle...i think it is funny. you get my official (and very valuable) seal of approval for the joke.

because i'll be honest, i'm due on the 3rd, and i am TOTALLY worried about the looming 11th...

jess, i'm SURE you're going to deliver first! second babies always come sooner, don't they? and ben is convinced we're going to be at least a few days late-which is SO encouraging!

tara said...

maybe instead of naming here memory it could be mamory. think about it.

Rizzle said...

Mrs. Memory Mamory Woods? If she ever became a super hero she could just replace the Mrs. with a "The": The Memory Mamory. That would strike fear in all who crossed her.

I'm going to do something ground breaking.....

India WILL be born on September 2nd in the back seat of the van very near Izzys but a little closer to the Russian CoC.
Unless you don't go that way. and why would you? It probably takes forever.

but since my bloglandia bff took my guessing weight, I say she will be 7.1.

i thought your joke was Funny Ry.
But don't tempt fate... cause when you do? that's when you end up with a daughter named Memory Nineeleven and you're dead because you 1)got your wife pregnant in the first place and 2) made her stay pregnant for 8 days after her due date.

arwen said...

this is like my safe place....

I was stalking Ron on myspace.
While stalking Ron, I decided to stalk Shane for a second.
Looked at his pictures.
It was there that I found this.
I think it's rather sweet that your Africa giraffe was made into a magnet.
It's like a sweet little homage or something.
Anyways....
that's it.
It's late and I have to go to bed now.

Jen said...

What if her birthday happened to be the day after 9-11? Like, the actual 9-11? And then nobody really wanted to celebrate her birthday because lots of other people got killed and stuff. Makes for a sad birthday all the way around. Oh, wait. That's Ben's birthday! It was kind of a dim birthday...

I would like her to be born... August 31st. That is not taking into consideration my father's schedule, only my own. Sorry, dad. (I actually want her to be born a few days before that but I didn't think I could pick the same day as some one else.) I say 7lbs 3oz.

Brahim Brahim said...

ok...so, for the vote. 7 lbs. 8 oz., September 5th.....sorry Jess.

Brahim Brahim said...

This is Nezar's guess....."Sept. 10th and 8 lbs. 8 oz., happy pushing." I apologize for my husband.

Jess said...

Kat: Thanks for the present. I hope that everything with your family emergency ended up being ok!

Jen: the 31st works good for me. I have this feeling it is either going to be the 26th or the 29th...but that doesn't really mean anything...my feelings about pregnancy have never really been that helpful

Juan de grande said...

this is my guess: septmeber 4th, 8 lbs even. and all i gotta say is I hope she gets your nose jess.

Eric & Tara said...

ummm, i think you forgot to call me and tell me that india was born the other day...on the 25th and that she weighed 6.10....thanks alot. i will be waiting for my prize.

arwen said...

Tara?
Can I tell you something?






I love you and I miss you and I wish we were real friends and not just pretendyfriends.

Kaydub said...

ok, this is a late vote, but since she's not born yet, i guess i'm not too late. 6lbs, 13 oz. on Sept. 6. Yes, i think that is it.
