The guessing game

I've never been much for games which is kind of a bummer since I married into a game-lovin' family. There is one game that I have always quite enjoyed. Birch thinks it is kind of a dumb pointless game..."the guessing game" but I am really quite good at it and find it quite enjoyable.

Wanna play?? If you want to make your GUESS on when Chloe Ruth Ditto will be born, her weight and length you can leave it in your comment. If you say she will be born after this Saturday I will be dropping you from our Christmas Card list.

Just to give you a little help here are the stats of the other kids:

7 lb. 15 oz
21 inches
Two days overdue

Sara Elizabeth Ditto
September 4, 1999

12.4 cm.
Born at 19.5 weeks gestation

Buried in Missoula, MT

7 lbs. 2 oz
18 3/4 inches
2 weeks early

5 lbs. 8 oz.
18 1/2 inches
2 weeks early

5 lbs. 14 oz.

Chloe Ruth Ditto

I had my doctor's appointment this morning and nothing much has changed since last week. This is an ultrasound picture from today (though not a great one--it is a side profile of her face and her hand in front of her face). Though my fundal measurement is small, the ultrasound measurements seem right on track. My midwife "gently" stripped me today and I have had little action since. She doesn't think I will "last" until this Friday but then again that is what she said last week. There are currently no promises about a Friday all depends on their being room at the hospital. I have another appointment on Thursday afternoon for a second more vigorous stripping. Come on Chloe!!!

Let's hope your midwife files her nails like you did back in the day...

Did I mention how in love I am with the name you chose? I can't remember if I suggested it or not. I hope I did so I can have been a part in the naming of your last children.

Leah's comment about the nails is grossing me out.

Elyse said...

I hope she meant she was filing them while you were in labor, not in preparation for the labor =>

Terrible guesser but:
5' 15oz
18 1/4 inches

I'm too late to guess. But hey -- I also don't really like games and Taylor (and his fam, and much of my fam) loves them! Oh well. He has cut WAY back on Settlers of Catan since we married, thank goodness! <;
