As promised (or threatened.  Whichever you prefer), 35 weeks and counting.

Incredibly artistic photo series courtesy of Mr. Dweej, bee tee dub.









Now, time for super exhilarating delivery date poll!!!

The winner of which will receive eternal honor and glory.  And perhaps something else which I have yet to determine since I actually haven't given this any thought.  Sounds awesome, right?

So here are your pertinent stats so you can make informed guesses and get all competitive-like:

EDD: June 23rd

Child #1: Induced at 41 weeks 1 day, 7 lbs. 13 oz.
Child #2: Spontaneous labor at 38 weeks 6 days, 7 lbs. 3 oz.
Child #3: Spontaneous labor at 38 weeks 4 days, 7lbs. 6 oz.
Child #4: Spontaneous labor at 39 weeks 5 days, 7lbs. 0 oz.
Child #5: INSERT GUESSES HERE (in the comments, actually), SPORTS FANS!

Edited on 6/3 to add: the prize for the winner is going to be a super fantastic necklace!  I'll get a pic up soon, I swear :)

  9. Because you look so adorable and tiny everywhere but your belly (which is pretty small for 35 weeks!), I'm going to say that you'll go to 39 weeks and 6 days, with a little Dweejkin weighing in at 7lbs 7oz!

    ReplyDelete
  10. You look great! How exciting to be so close to having the little one in your arms. I'm going to say June 14, 7 lbs 3 oz.

    ReplyDelete
  11. YOu're only belly! I would hate you but you're just too cute!

  12. June 16 and here's why: The best saints' day ever! Look at these names...

    St. Germaine Cousin, St. Vitus, St. Aleydis, St. Crescentia, St. Alice, St. Abraham, St. Adelaide, St. Benildis, St. Vouga, Bls. Thomas Green, Thomas Scryven, and Thomas Reding, St. Trillo, St. Domitian & Hadelin, St. Dulas, St. Edburga of Winchester, St. Germana Cousin, St. Hesychius, St. Landeilnus, St. Lybe, St. Orsisius St. Melan

    I mean, St. Vitus! St. Edburga! Edburga Borobia has a great ring to it, don't you think? (Also, 7#, 9 oz, spontaneous labor.)

    You look beautiful, by the way! Heidi Klum, I'm telling you!

    1. I am going with Winchester Borobia. That way you commemorate the saint (Edburga of Winchester) AND you commemorate the rifle (Winchester). Win-win.

  13. 1. You look gorgeous.
    2. You look incredible.
    3. 39 weeks, 2 days; 8lbs2oz. Boom.

    ReplyDelete
  14. okay, I'm with everyone else who thinks you have not earned the right to complain because you remain absolutely stunning, and it's just....well, it's just not fair.

    One day past your due date because I am mean...and because MY 5th was just a few hours past his due date) and 8lbs 1 oz (because any weight you have gained has absolutely gone directly to yer child, who will thank you for carrying the largeness by sleeping through the night early.

    Your welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh my gosh, you guys are all so sweet. Please note that there are no head-on photos. And for good reason! Hint: I should have a wide load sign taped to my back to warn people approaching in the grocery store.

    Seriously, I've gained 45 lbs already. I promise it's there :)

    p.s. But you meanie heads who have me going past my due date are so...mean!

    ReplyDelete
  16. So I am obviously a terrible person because my first thought was "Wow! She's so pregnant that even her shirt has stretch marks!" But both you and the shirt are looking good.

    June 15, 7 lbs 4 oz.

    1. I wasn't going to comment on the shirt with stretch marks, but since you brought it up...

  17. Aw, look at you, all glowy!

    I'll be kind - June 16, 7lbs, 3oz (that's the weight of my Scrumplet!).

    ReplyDelete
  18. June 17th,7 lbs 4oz, I thought something similar to Mrs N's comment but my thought was if that shirt was green she'd be looking like a sweet fresh watermelon! Good luck with that baby darlin.

    ReplyDelete
  19. June 24th like my first-born son in 2001. Spontaneous. An 8-pounder. I prefer June 19 though since that's my birthday. Keep it a Gemini baby, you know. Good luck with everything!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Beautiful lady, you are. I'm practicing to be Yoda.

    I'm going with spot on the due date...because it's about time you had one of those! And the size will be just perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, I totally want to guess the 28th because how fun would that be??? But realistically I'll say 39w 4d which is...June 20th I believe. 7 lbs. 10oz. and boy (wait, you don't know boy or girl, right?). I'll even venture a birth between 5 and 7 a.m. Ooooh, I want to win the nothing-gift!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't want to be a meanie, but I am going to say 40w4d just because homebirth babies seem to take their sweet time. :) As to weight, I say 8lbs. 4 oz. So excited for you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. June 18. 8 pounds 2 oz. (You're in the country now, babies grow bigger out there :p)
    & you look gorgeous!! I love baby bellies! Especially when they're not mine :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. Spontaneous labor at 39 weeks 2 days (so... June 18th?) and 7 lbs, 8 oz. (I'd LOVE having a baby that small!) And I must say, you're one of the cutest pregnant ladies I've seen!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Spontaneous labor at 38 weeks even! And also, YOU ARE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PREGNANT LADY! For reals.

    ReplyDelete
  26. So if we guess correctly, do we get to keep the baby?

  30. June 14th (my birthday) and let's say 7lbs 8oz.

    You look great pregnant but the rest of you is slim.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You look beautiful! God bless you and happy pushing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. June 14...8 lbs, 3 oz. Those numbers are totally random, just off the top of my head, but who knows, maybe I'm subconsciously psychic...;) You look lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  33. June 25 (cause that's my anniversary!) and...hmm... 7lbs, 10 ounces *cause that's how big I was. Lucky numbers, yo.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Alright Dwija, now you're just bragging!! (about being 35 weeks and all, you lucky dog, no august pregnancy for you this year my dear!) You do look cute! And if anyone else reads this comment, the head- on view is just as adorable as the side, don't let her fool ya!
    OK, I'm guessing 38wks 4days, and why not another 7lb 3oz-er? I'm hoping you get a 6lb something size, but that may be too optimistic!
    We can't wait to meet this little Borobia!

    1. Ooooh, the dangers of having someone who sees you all the time commenting on your blog: they think they can get all know-it-all with their insider info!

      In case you want to feel even more jealous, Tommy and I have the tiniest heads known to human kind....so even if I have a 10 lb. baby, her head is going to be minuscule. WINNING.

    2. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Tinyhead Borobia. I love it.

  35. Remember when Katie Holmes was pregnant with Suri and everyone thought it was a fake pregnancy because her belly looked like a beach ball, but the rest of her was still normal?

    Just sayin.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow. You are beautiful.

    40 weeks, 1 day.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I know I'm late to the party, but I'll guess 39 weeks, 3 days, 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Prayers for a smooth labor and delivery! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I vote 39 weeks -- will that be June 16th?

    7lbs 6 oz ...... and I vote boy!

    I love that top -- looks like Japanese Weekend?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm going with June 18th because it's Jeff's birthday and he's a pretty stand-up guy. How about 7 lbs 13 oz.

    ReplyDelete
  40. 38 weeks 5 days spontaneous labor!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. June 15th, 7 lbs. 4 oz. I can't wait to hear when it happens!

  45. Spontaneous labor 38 weeks, day 3, @ 7 lbs. 3 oz.

    ReplyDelete
  46. 38 weeks and 5 days! Woohoo! Good luck : )- Sarah Scott

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am guessing the baby will be born on his/her birthday and weigh the amount you will remind them of whenever misbehaving and after a certain amount of pain (via labor or section) which you will remember as being twice as long and three times as bad as actually was. I say this with conviction as the mother of ten such children. I'll be expecting that necklace promptly. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. June 13th, 9lbs (so the weight gain is justified in the end)
    My B-day is on that day, great day for a birth. you will not be induced and your midwife will be all there and all that!! Praying for you....

    ReplyDelete
  49. Im gonna say spontaneous, 39 weeks days, 7ls 5 0z.

  50. Hey D! June 19th! Just cause its my birthday date. :D ld

    ReplyDelete
  51. My wife would love the necklace. I say June 22nd, and around 7lb 5oz.

    ReplyDelete
  52. So, are you giving the necklace to the one who guesses when the baby is ACTUALLY going to be born, or to the one who tells you what you want to hear?

    My guess: TODAY, right after the kids go peacefully down for a long nap and a fairy godmother arrives to make dinner. Your labor will be short and relatively pain-free, and right after the birth, you will be handed a chilled glass of champagne (or beer if you prefer).

    ReplyDelete
  53. June 15, 7lbs. 8oz. (I hoping it's a Friday just for you!)

    ReplyDelete
  54. you look fantastic! although my back hurts looking at your bellyball. i'm thinking, you're still riding high, so baby's got a little time. spontaneous labor caused by snake sighting, june 21st. which is not a friday, but pretty close.

    ReplyDelete
  55. June 20th (because I had one on that day and know at least 2 other kids with that birthday)
    7 lbs 11 oz

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yesss! You didn't close the comments yet.
    June 20th because it's the longest day of the year.
    7lbs. 12oz. because that's what Baby J weighed.
