It's Time!

Well, I've reached that all-important 34 week point. Why is that such a huge deal? Because if I go into labor now, they won't stop it. Chances are that the babes would need only minimal NICU time.

That being said, I do not feel like I'll be going into labor any time soon. I'm still relatively comfortable (except at nighttime) and haven't had any more episodes of contractions. Both girls are head down and active and I am growing exponentially. Probably because I've been hittin' the ice cream. My next non-stress test, ultrasound, and appointment are on Thursday and I can't wait to see how big the girls are now.

So I think it's time to start a baby arrival pool! I will deliver at 38 weeks (April 25th or so) because my doc won't let the twins cook any longer than that. I think her normal call day is a Tuesday, which would be April 26th, so let's call that the last eligible day for this little wager, shall we?

Give me your best guesses! How about answering the following:
1. Birth date
2. Birth time
3. Length of labor (Milo's was 12 hours -- 6 active, Violet's was 7 hours -- 3 active)
4. Baby A's weight
5. Baby B's weight

If you are normally an anonymous commenter, leave me a clue in your comment so I can figure out who you are. Like, "Your cousin from Russia" or something. Or your name, if you aren't afraid -- that would make it much easier. Like, "Jana K." or whatever.

I don't have any prizes for y'all (my prizes are the baby girls I'll get to meet), but if you are the closest predictor, I'll make sure to pimp out your psychic ability to anyone who cares!

Ok, when I first saw the title of your post I thought "This is it" and was so excited (even though I don't really know you, but I love babies, so there you go.)

Anyway, on with the wager...here are my guesses.

Date: I'm gonna be goofy and give the girls separate birthdays so ...
You will deliver baby A on Thursday, April 21 at 12 a.m. and baby B on Friday, April 22 at 12:01 a.m.
Ha! I just want to be different.

Length of Labor: 5 and 2 active
Weight: A - 6lbs. 4 oz and B - 5lbs. 5 oz

So there you go! Best of luck. I can't wait to see what names you have picked out. So exciting! (insert loud squeal here) :-)

I am sooooo bad at guessing, so I'm not even going to try, but... AHHH! I am so excited for you! I'll be even more excited once you actually have those babies, lol. The past nine months have been a trip, haven't they?
