OK, everyone has done a great job guessing the gender of the baby. Now we’re going to have a friendly little wager on the birth weight of the baby. It’s still election season — Barack and Hillary are still going at it in the primaries — so it’s high time for more polling. (P.S. How fun is it that we live in a “key state” this year!? Not just the Keystone State anymore!)

So, here are the stats so far:
At 29 weeks, Baby weighed 4 lbs. 4 oz.
At 33 weeks, Baby weighed 5 lbs. 14 oz.

What will Baby weigh at 37 weeks on Birth Day?

Please leave your guesses in the comments section. Thanks for playing! 🙂

    Hello you three-

    My guess for the babie’s weight is 8lbs. 4oz., and I’m thinking it’s a boy! I sure wish I knew, because I’m passing up a lot of really cute baby clothes and other fun things.
    Oh well.

    Love you all-

    I’m going to weigh in (ha ha!) on this one and say 7lbs. 7 oz. It’s what I weighed when I was born and I like the symmetry of it. And really, if this is indeed my child, it will appreciate that symmetry someday.

    Confused a little…how can they tell how much the baby weighs? It’s not like they can weigh you with the baby and then weigh you without the baby and then subtract the different and then you have the baby weight…ya know?? I still think it’s a boy, too!! Can’t wait to find out for sure. Oh, and I think he is going to weight 8lbs and 8oz. Love you guys 🙂

    The way they measure the baby is to measure the circumference of the head and abdomen. Then they plug those numbers into the computer, where, through a secret formula, it spits out the new weight. I have no idea what the formula is, but it is +/- 20% accurate. Thanks for your guess!
