Our Five Ring Circus: The Guessing Game

The Guessing Game

Considering the fact that I only have days until I deliver this baby, I thought it would be fun to have a poll!

Is Nugget a boy or a girl?
When will he/she be born?
How much will he/she weigh?

Some helpful hints:

Boy or Girl?

Going by pregnancy comparisons, this pregnancy is exactly like the one I had with Lexie. I carried all three of my babies in a similar way (out front), although I carried higher with Lexie and Nugget.

Just days before I had Dylan:


The night before I had Lexie:


39 weeks with Nugget:



My due date is on Monday, August 8th. At my 38 week appointment, I was (still) 3 cm and 50% effaced.


Dylan was born a month early and weighed 7 lbs, 2 oz. I measured right on with him.

Lexie was born at 38.5 weeks and weighed 9 lbs, 1 oz. I measured 2 weeks ahead with her.

Nugget is measuring 2 weeks behind, and the doctor estimated right around 7 lbs at my 38 week appointment.


Good luck! I can't wait to see who has the closest guess!


  1. Fun!!!

    I am going to go with an 8lb. 5 oz. girl born on August 10th!

    ha...I know that is late....but that is MY b-day and how much I weighed when I was born!

    For your sake I hope that you go before then....but you never know!!

  2. How fun!
    8 pounds 2 oz
    Tuesday August 9th

  3. Girl. August 7th. 6 lbs 13 ozs.

  4. oh my gosh you look so good and i cant believe the time has come :) cant wait to hear what the little one is and all about him or her!

  5. I think its a BOY!

    weight 8lbs 2oz

    day: Aug 6

    I have to warn you that I almost always guess the correct day on ppls pgs. I have no idea how but--I guessed right on weight and day at least 5 times now in the past few years.

  6. I want Nuggie to be a boy (what can I say? I'm partial), but I think it's a girl :)
    When will he/she be born? I think she'll be born the day before your due date
    How much will he/she weigh? I think she'll weigh 7lbs 10oz.

  7. girl, 7 lbs, 6oz, on your due date! :)

  8. Ok I read this on my phone earlier and couldn't comment, so I have been thinking all evening.

    Since the day that you announced Nugget was coming, I've thought it was a boy. And I'm still gonna go with boy.

    I think he will be 9lbs, 2 oz. (the Dr's were WAY off with all my kids).

    And I'll say August 5, at ohhhhh I dunno, 6:15pm.

    Fun game, can't wait to "meet" him (or her, cuz I'm probably wrong).

  9. My guesses...

    Born on August 7, 2011
    7lbs. 4oz.

    HOPE I'M RIGHT!!! good luck to you and you look FABULOUS!!

  10. I'm thinking you look like you are having a girl. All girls need a little sister to play with and dress up and paint their toenails. Right now my girls think it's fun to paint my almost 3-year-old BOY's nails. And the worst part is that he likes it too.

  11. I say August 8th (that's my twins' bday, so I'm partial to the day myself) and boy (just because I want to go against the majority, for the heck of it, although I think girl might be right, lol) and 8 lbs. 1 ounce.

  12. Girl, 6 lbs, 10 oz, born on your due date, the 8th. ;-)

  13. Ahahah this is fun!

    Uhmm.. Nugget is measuring 38th-week by August 8, so we can stretch it til August 19th? Hahaha coz thats my birthday! :) Hehe kidding, I know u have been wanting to see your little one :) So I will go for August 8 :)

    Girl :) and uhmm.. maybe around 7-8lbs :)

  14. I'm going to go with August 6th, 8 lbs 2 oz, and a GIRL! I think Mother's intuition is right most of the time :)

  15. Nuts I didn't see this post until after I saw Twitter this morning. =) I know, I know! LOL!

  16. I am the worst at this!
    I am going to go with:
    Aug 4 (my boys' bday)
    8lbs 11oz
    Can't wait to see your new little babe!

  17. Oh my! SOOOO close! I had "Nuggets" too - for my first two anyway. :-) You look great - I pray you have a fast and easy delivery!

  18. Girl! August 11th. 7lbs 11oz. Sorry about the late date, but I love the number 11. :)

  19. I am going to say Nugget is an 8lb. 12 oz. girl! She will make her debut on August 8. I can't wait to meet her!!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
