Guessing Game

How much will she weigh?

This is what we know:
  • She will be 37 weeks and one day old when she is born
  • the pregnancy book says at 37 weeks she is around 6 1/2 pounds
  • last measuring of my belly was at 36 weeks and she measured at 37 (one week ahead)
  • last ultrasound was at 36 weeks and I was told it was not accurate and she measured 2 weeks behind (34 weeks)
  • if I had Gestational Diabetes (whatever boarderline is) she would probably be a bit bigger because of that
  • she might also be bigger because of my massive amount of weight gain
  • I was born at 36 1/2 weeks and I weighed 5 pounds 14 ounces
  • Jaren was born a few days after his due date at 9 pounds 5 ounces
  • I was considered small before I was pregnant, so if my weight gain hadn't gone berzerk I might have had a smaller baby.  But now, probably not.
I'm guessing 6 pounds 5 ounces. 
Jaren is guessing 6 pounds 8 ounces. 
We've even had a 7 pound guess. 

What is your guess?

The prize? 
The pride of guessing correctly.  :)

My guess is 6 lbs. 8 oz. Just because that was what O was. And since she will be born only 6 days before O's b-day--what the hay!!

Whit, this is mom on Vicki's blog, but you weighted 5 lbs 15 oz, not 14, and I'm guessing 6 lbs, 2 oz., so she can wear the cute little sleepers I am bringing! :)
