Baby day cometh...and my first GIVEAWAY!

We're officially 38 weeks along. I had a dr. appt. yesterday to check on baby again and all is well - no spikes in blood pressure or anything out of the ordinary. Last week's sono estimated she's 6 lbs. and 8 oz. - of course the sono we had late in the game for Miss E said she was over 8 lbs. and when she was born, she only weighed in at 6 lb. and 14 oz. so what do they know, right?

Just for fun, it's time for you to get involved. I'm hosting my first giveaway, so bear with me! The giveaway is for a handmade "easy peasy swaddle sheet" - to enter, you must leave a comment (gasp) and tell me what date you think baby girl will be born as well as if you'd want your blanket to be for a girl or a boy. It's that simple! (for an extra entry, blog about my giveaway and link to this post! Be sure to let me know you did in your comment so I can go and check out your blog post and give you your extra entry!).

From the entries that choose the right date, one winner will be randomly selected and sometime in the foreseeable future, I'll find my way to the post office (or a wonderful family member who will be staying with me to help out after baby is born, will drop it off for me - that's you, Mom :) or Dad :) ) and it'll be on its way hopefully within a month of baby's delivery. I already have one extra ready for a girl and will be working on a boy one today - so the delivery time shouldn't be too long after baby is born!

So...think about it, post your comment and we'll see who guesses correctly!

Today is the 15th of January. Baby's due date is January 27, 2009. Happy guessing!!!

Oh yes, if noone actually guesses the day correctly, I'll randomly choose a winner from all who participated. Forgot that part!

What a cute idea! Since this is your 5th child (wow!) I'm going to guess January 23rd. And since Mike & I won't find out what we're having until baby gets here in June, I'll have to let you know if I want a boy or girl theme a little later :-) By the way, by this due date I'm assuming that y'all aren't going to be able to make it down this way for the ordination, right? Totally understandable! I don't think I would drive that far with a newborn! Hope you're feeling okay!

Aw, that little girl is gonna get here Jan 25th. Just got a feeling that she's ready to see her family!!

CAB said...

If I remember correctly, the ordination is early in February. If all goes well w/baby's arrival, CKB will probably try to drive down and back the day of the ordination (I can't speak for him though, but I imagine he will), and that's fine w/me, of course. I'll try to send some pictures along w/him :) Sorry we can't all be there, but I don't think I'd be up for the trip! Thankfully, my parents or at least my Mom (Dad might have gone back home at that point) will be here w/me to help out. I'll be praying for the ordination, for Mike and for you.

CAB said...

Oh, sis. Latane...you're going to have me waiting right up until the due date, eh? :) Thanks for playing along!

Oh, and I forgot, Anne, did y'all find out the first time around or were you surprised as well? We did not find out w/Miss E, did w/everyone else. :)

Anne said...

We didn't find out with Kayleigh, either. Just doesn't seem right to us to open our "present" before he/she gets here. Mike's ordination is February 7th. And don't worry about not coming, I wouldn't make that trip either. We appreciate your prayers, and we are praying for a safe delivery for both you & the baby.

I'm going to guess January 29 (which is my 2nd granddaughter's birthday -- she's soon to be 15!). And if I win, you won't have far to send the swaddle blanket -- I want Miss ____ to have it shortly after her arrival in your family.

from Courtney:

Sorry, (name removed),I'm going to guess the first of February. I don't know your track record so I'm going to go off of mine. :) Plus what a nice surprise for Miss E. It seems baby girls are blooming around here and I know a first time mommy that would probably love to try out the swadler (as would I but alas I don't know where to find a baby girl of my own at the moment) :)
I'm still available to do any thing you may need...dinner, errands, enertainment? Just let me know.
Blogging is fun. :)

January 24 is my guess sis! Fun giveaway idea!

I'm guessing January 30th. I have a friend who will find out if she's having a boy or a girl on Feb. 2nd-so if I win, I'll let you know.

CAB said...

Alright y'all - guessing dates AFTER the due date - are y'all trying to torture me? ;)

Other Mother said...

I'll guess January 22nd. The little girl in our family is scheduled to arrive on Thursday if not before (elevated blood pressure for mamma).

CAB said...

I went through the elevated BP w/our first too - I was due w/her on 2/10, but went in Jan. 31 evening for an induction and little Miss E was born 2/1 in the afternoon. I'll be praying for your daughter and grandchild that all would go well w/both of them.

January 21. It would be fun to have two cousins sharing a birthdate. If so, it won't be long now. ;-)
