Place your bets now

Yesterday we had our weekly doctor's appointment and outlook is favorable for an early arrival. Yay!! The baby is at -3 station and though the top of the cervix is closed, I'm 2 cm dilated at the bottom and have started thinning. I knew all those random contractions were doing something.

Of course, when I told the doc I'm presenting my Thesis on Friday and Morgan plans on going camping out of cell phone range on Saturday, he laughed and said, "I'll make sure to carry my pager with me on Saturday because with everything going on that'll probably be the day." Yeah, and the baby will most likely be a boy because the nursery has pink walls. Don't it figure? We also decided not to have the 3rd ultrasound because everything has looked great so far and there's nothing really they could do if they did spot something out of the normal. *Phew* I wasn't looking forward to being made to chug water, hold it for an hour and then be pushed on by a mean ultrasound tech for another hour. It really isn't a pleasant experience.

Anyway, getting into the spirit of the coming arrival how about we start placing some bets on when, how big and long and what sex the baby will be? Winner will get...a candy bar. How bout a Baby Ruth? *wink*

Here's my guess. Feel free to post with your bets by commenting on this post.
