A Virtual Baby Shower

In honor of FINALLY hitting 37 weeks, I’m having a virtual baby shower for myself.  It’s my blog and I can do things like that.
I can’t feed you cake (I made one for me, but it wouldn’t ship out too well).  But we can play games!  I’m hoping to send out little prizes of some kind to the winners, but it’ll have to be after delivery, for obvious reasons.
To play, just leave a comment with your answer/guess.
Game #1:
Guess the Due Date – Actual calculated due date June 6th (which is also my biggest little sister’s birthday). Our first two kids came late and were induced. Bubbagirl, my first home birth, was one week and 4 days early.  Just FYI, full moon is on May 27th, which happens to be my little brothers 18th birthday.  Also, our 13th wedding anniversary is June 7th…. just sayin’… God has a wild sense of humor.
Game #2:
Guess the Weight and Length – Our other kids have been between 7 1/2 and 8 1/2 lbs and 20-21″
Game #3:
How big around is Momma – We’ll wait until the day arrives to grab the final tape measure… but most of ya’ll have seen pics so far… so guess how big I’ll be.
Just for fun:
We did this with our first born and I wish we had done it with the other two.  We had everyone write an acrostic poem using Samantha’s name.  Now, we don’t know if Peanut is a boy or a girl and we have really only settled on a boy name SO, I’d like to invite my shower guests to write a poem for Baby Baldwin.  They will be printed out and added to their scrapbook.
Thanks in advance to all my buddies who play along and help me make these last weeks a little more entertaining!

    I am guessing he will be born on June 2nd in the early morning hours, be a boy of course, and be 7 pounds 6 ounces and 21.5 inches long.
    I don’t have any idea how big around a big ole pregnant belly is. I don’t remember the numbers on mine, if I ever got measured but I am sure it is an astronomical number, like 60 inches or 70 inches hell I dunno.
    You know if I write a poem using the letters B-A-L-D-W-I-N that it is going to be totally rated R and not appropriate for a bay book!! SO I will skip that one!
