No Diving Allowed

The funny thing about announcing that we are having a baby is that practically everyone seems to have a prediction about what the gender is. We have heard quite a few predictions for a girl and quite a few for a boy. Since those are the only two realistic options, I think the bases are pretty well covered. It seems, though, that most of the predictions seem to lean in a certain direction (we’re not telling which yet) so we decided to have a little fun with it and start a pool! Since most people seem to have a prediction, we thought it would be fun to see who is the most accurate!

To make it a bit more challenging than just predicting gender, we thought it would be fun to add a few more categories to see just exactly how good you really are. Just post a comment here and let us know your prediction for: gender, length, weight, and birth date.

Here is how it will work:

  • Each category is worth up to 5 points
  • Points are deducted for incorrect guesses as follows:
    • Minus 5 points for incorrect gender
    • Minus 1 point for each inch below or above actual length
    • Minus 1 point for each ounce under or over actual weight
    • Minus 1 point for each day before or after actual birth date
  • The winner will get to change the first diaper something fun after the baby is born!


Your guess = Boy, 20”, 7 lbs, & 3/22/11

Actual baby = Girl, 19”, 7lbs, & 3/24/11

Your score = 0 pts for gender, 4 pts for length, 5 pts for weight, & 3 pts for date


The person with the most points at the end of the game is the winner! In the event of a tie, the point will go to the person who first made the correct prediction. Don’t be afraid to put your two cents in if we have never met. The game is open to anyone who reads our blog (and so is the prize!)

Alright folks, start guessing!!


To give everyone a starting point, the technical due-date is March 27, 2011.

Boy, 18.5", 9.1 lbs, 3/17/11 (basically, I'm betting you'll have a me. I was a big baby. Hopefully yours won't be black, though - that'd be awkward.)
