Yes, I have been given a due date and yes we all know that they are not always accurate.  We chose to not find out what we are having, so that is also a surprise!  All you have to do is, post a comment below stating your guess of what day my baby is going to be born, and what we will have.  So simple, so fun!

Then, you just need to sign up for our mailing list for special offers and coupons, which is just to the right of this announcement in the side bar.  *signing up for our mailing list validates your submission to our AWESOME game.  Once we receive your new signup and baby guess, we will post your claim in the comment section below and you now OWN that day and gender guess.  ONE guess per person/email address.

A few hints:

1. This is my second baby, my first is 2 yrs and she’s a girl!  Meet Linda Elle :

2. My OBGYN stated that my due date is Dec.8, then a month later changed that date to Dec.6.

3. I was 4 days early with Linda Elle

4.  We conceived on or around March 15, 2012

5.  I have not planned or scheduled a C-section date/time.


Good luck and happy guessing!!
