Ok – so my daughter would bet her little life on it.
My friend LB is sure of it.
Some other friends of mine think so too.
If I wasn’t so self-conscious I’d put up a picture so you could argue about it.
My mother-in-law is the only person outside of my medical group who knows for certain.
My perinatologist and his sonographer have teased me about it.
What is it? You guessed right probably. It’s the gender of our baby.
Besides my mother-in-law and medical group — all say “boy”. The others won’t tell and I won’t ask.
Well if it is a boy his name will be Justin. I had to clear this choice with a loved one for reasons I won’t disclose. But I’m sure you can all relate to negative name association. I sure can. I would never name my child Meredith, Mildred, or James (Jim, Jimmy) because those names make me crawl inside myself. It’s not the names themselves though. It’s who they remind me of. Blech!!
Anyway. What I’m trying to conjure up here is some sort of contest for you all to participate in. You know I don’t do contests for popularity (I would never ask you to tell this or that person and leave my link and so on) and I don’t give away prizes (I’ve had two contests where I’ve donated $25 to a charity of their choice). What I am thinking of is this — double up the donation amount to $50 for a donation to The March of Dimes or St. Jude Children’s Hospital. I think those two fit because they are for babies or children, they are well-known, and they just touch me to the core.
So — help! What should this contest be like? It needs to be more difficult than before since the donation is double. Any suggestions?
Name the gender
the time of birth
the birth weight
????? what else ?????
I’m not due till January.
So — THINK!!
