Can we play a guessing game?

Asked by Judi (39798points) February 17th, 2010 from iPhone

Let’s try to guess when @casheroo will have her baby (date and time) and how much he will weigh. The one who comes closest gets pancakes!

Dog's avatar

Wait- weren’t pancakes how this whole thing started?

Sunday at 11:13 pm 7 lbs 12 oz

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Sunday, February 21st at 3:43 am. The baby will be 7 lbs, 4 oz.

Best of luck @casheroo!

Friday afternoon, say around 3, 3:30-ish, weighing 6 pounds, 11½ ounces.

I also predict he will be born with ray bans on and already know how to play the bass guitar.

Good luck @casheroo!

casheroo's avatar

aww. I love anyone who guesses less than 8lbs haha

I’m shocked I haven’t had the baby. My first was six days early. Ugh.
I’ll take a stab at it. I keep thinking I’m in labor, but it hasn’t happened yet. Boo.

February 18th. 11:00pm
8lbs 3oz 21in

CyanoticWasp's avatar

See previous answers.

I win.

wilma's avatar

Oh I forgot to put a weight!
Feb 22, 4:06 AM

Trillian's avatar

@CyanoticWasp You don’t get to play again. You only got one guess. Who’s laughing now, funny man?~ ;-)

Jude's avatar

Sunday, Feb 21st at 11:51 a.m. 8lbs 4 oz (sorry, casheroo =/).

Val123's avatar

Um. Thursday Feb 17 at 1:17 a.m. OR Friday Feb 18 at 1:18 a.m. OR Saturday Feb 19 at 1:19 a.m. OR Sunday….wait…...I feel strongly that it’s going to be on Sunday….. You’re going to think I’m nuts, because I was goofing around, obviously, but as as I was writing “Sunday” I just froze…well, when I was pregnant with my 2nd child, my original due date was July 20. At my 6 months check I told the doctor I wanted to change my due date. He laughed, but got his clipboard to make a note of the new due date. I said, July 14. I even had my Mom change her plane tickets to that day…...Mom was one hour late. I was having the baby just as her plane was touching down.

Anyway, this is one of those, “I’m going to get laughed at”....but I just HATE it when I feel like I know something’s going to happen, but I don’t say anything, and then it DOES happen. It’s so lame to say, “I knew that was going to happen!” So I’m hanging myself out on this one. All for @casheroo!

Sunday at 8:04 p.m….7p 4oz. Final answer

@johnpowell LOL!

faye's avatar

Saturday, feb 19 at 2:10 am, 8lb 9 oz My last baby was 8–10 so I gave you a big one, too!

KatawaGrey's avatar

@casheroo: You know that as soon as your water breaks, you will have to rush to the computer and tell us before you go to the hospital, right?

knitfroggy's avatar

I’m guessing February 20th at 4:32pm. 7lb 12 oz. 19½ in.

filmfann's avatar

Feb 28th at 5am.
7lbs, 7 ounces. 22 in.

rangerr's avatar

Feb. 19th.
3:38 PM.
8lbs. 4 ounces.
20.5 inches.

I expect twitter updates during the birth.

casheroo's avatar

@KatawaGrey @rangerr Yeah, I’m going to be one of those people who posts while in labor. I’m not rushing to the hospital right away…I hate how they strap you down instantly. So, I’ll be home for a little while. I’ll at least have my husband update if I’m not up to it.

chyna's avatar

Feb 19, 3:32 7lbs, 3 oz, 21 inches long.

essieness's avatar

@casheroo I’ve been out way too long. I didn’t know it was already so close!

I’m guessing he’ll come on Sunday at 1:00 pm and he’ll be 7lbs 8oz.

casheroo's avatar

@Cruiser Haha, we’re crazy…but we’re going to go through it one more time, so no big V yet! We’ll see how I feel about that once I give birth again.

Anything happening yet, @casheroo)?

casheroo's avatar

@Val123 Nope. Just walked the mall for an hour and TMI sex to try to get things moving. We’ll see if anything happens!

Val123's avatar

@casheroo Mmmmm. Have sex Saturday night. So that I will win the bet. (F’rill on the sex thing! It works!)

@Val123 Lurve for f’rill.

Adagio's avatar

February 20
9.20pm
9lb 14oz You will no doubt hate me but if I can do it anyone can, 3 cheers! for beautiful big babies

Adagio's avatar

I think I should have said February 22, I am on the other side of the world and my reckoning went backwards instead of forwards, if that makes sense to anyone. Sunday, your Sunday was the day I was meaning.

Oh, by the way @Judi, who is going to make my pancakes? :) I have a wonderful recipe for sourdough pancakes, à la Edward Espe Brown (Tassajara Bread Book).

Jude's avatar

No word, yet. Maybe, she’ll have the bambino on @blondesjon’s birthday.

aprilsimnel's avatar

OK, new guess:

25 February, 7:43pm

Dog's avatar

New guess- This Wednesday at 1:20am Pacific time

Jude's avatar

New guess – Feb. 24th, 2:10 p.m.

Val123's avatar

WELL???????????

casheroo's avatar

back from the doctors…

1cm dilated, and -3 station. At least something is happening down there. I go back on Thursday to make sure he’s okay (a non-stress test) and then I go back next Monday for a regular appointment. I don’t think I’ll go much further than that, if I’m already dilating.

Val123's avatar

@casheroo BTW….is this your first baby? They can take a little longer, usually, than subsequent babies.

Glad to hear you’re dilating! That’s always a good sign.

casheroo's avatar

@Val123 Nope, not my first. My first was six days early!

KatawaGrey's avatar

@casheroo: Maybe this one’s making up for lost time!

ubersiren's avatar

Today’s the day; I can feel it.

Val123's avatar

Uh…I meant….next Sunday!

Dog's avatar

I am going to win folks. ~I told the baby I would split the winnings with him. ;)

tinyfaery's avatar

My new guess is Wednesday, 10:56pm. But, if you hold on till Monday your son will share my b-day.

casheroo's avatar

@ubersiren how are you feeling?? any contractions? Don’t you dare go ahead of me. lol

Val123's avatar

The race is on!!!

KatawaGrey's avatar

Ooooo, what if @ubersiren‘s and @casheroo‘s babies had the same birthday? That would be so cool!

And they could both be born on @tinyfaery‘s birthday!

Val123's avatar

@KatawaGrey Can we change all of our birthdays to Monday?

ubersiren's avatar

Lol… that would be great! Two jelly babies at once. It would be like some great cosmic alignment. There could be lightning or an earthquake or something. I’m feeling okay, @casheroo, thanks for asking. I’m just tired and stressed, but who isn’t in their last days of pregnancy, you know? I think my kid is actually waiting on yours to come out first, so you don’t have anything to worry about.

ubersiren's avatar

IT’S TIME!!!!!! Just got an update that she’s off to the hospital now… I’m so excited for her.

Jude's avatar

I’m so excited for you @casheroo!!!!

Jude's avatar

It looks as though @zephyr826‘ll get it! :)

essieness's avatar

OMG OMG OMG!

Dog's avatar

AWESOME!!!!!!!

KatawaGrey's avatar

Great! Can’t wait for the baby jelly!

tinyfaery's avatar

I call my cat Jelly Bean Baby Jelly. Aww…

Val123's avatar

Oh oh oh oh! OH! OH!!

YARNLADY's avatar

@ubersiren *** YAY *** thanks for the update.

Val123's avatar

Oh…I just looked at my response. It kind of looked like I was the one in labor! That is NOT how I intended it!

casheroo's avatar

thanks everyone :)

Judi's avatar

@casheroo ! Are you on your iPhone or are you home????????

filmfann's avatar

Quick! Somebody boil water!

casheroo's avatar

@Judi I’m at the hospital. Still waiting to push!

tinyfaery's avatar

I’m so excited.

filmfann's avatar

And I just can’t hide it!

SuperMouse's avatar

I’m about to lose control!

tinyfaery's avatar

And I think I like it.

Adagio's avatar

@casheroo don’t worry about the somewhat intimidating earlier 9lb 14oz prediction of mine, what will be will be, you go girl!

augustlan's avatar

Squee! Can’t wait for the new arrival. :D

Dog's avatar

This is so exciting!!!
