Weezy is right–we should start a pool.

I have no idea how to run a pool, of course. So (unless someone else wants to set up a Buzz/Boblet pool), I’m suggesting instead that y’all should feel free to leave your guesses in the comments here. (Remember, friends, we’re guessing the baby’s sex, NOT its gender. You can leave gender guesses, too, but that will get more complicated. For now, feel free to just guess “girl” or “boy”.)

To help you out, I have conducted some very scientific tests.

  • Madame Zaritska offered this prediction: “The day you deliver, outside will be slightly overcast. Your baby will arrive in the afternoon. After a labor lasting approximately 15 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 8 pounds, 15 ounces, and will be 19 inches long. This child will have light blue eyes and a lot of hair.” (Yeah, we’ll see…Madame Zaritska’s cockiness is kind of annoying.)
  • The “Ancient Chinese Gender Predictor” says “boy”.
  • This “Old Wives’ Tale” predictor says we have a 61% chance of having a girl.
  • This other quiz says “girl” too.
  • This page says “girl”, but includes the not-so-confidence-inspiring sentence, “Amusingly enough it works! Or is it?”
  • My mom, GB’s mom and dad, and my sister are all absolutely positive it’s a girl. No other family members have ventured guesses.
  • I have absolutely no “intuition” about this. At all. Neither does GB.

So….wanna play? Leave your guess in the comments, and feel free to ask any questions that will help you decide…
