100th Post!!! AND A Contest!!! (with a prize)

Soooo...This is my 100th post! I can't believe it. This is a big week for me, 25 weeks 4 days is when I realized our precious Wyatt was no longer with us.  I've been trying to think of something to do and so I've come up with a contest!

Guess Jackson's weight!
I have an ultrasound tomorrow, I'll be 25 weeks. At 23 weeks he was 1lb 3oz. I have no idea what his weight will be. Whoever gets closest to the correct weight wins. All you have to do is leave me a comment with your guess. In the event of a tie, the person who guessed that weight first wins. Now, I haven't exactly decided on the prize, BUT I want everyone to rest assured that it will be fabulous. Rest assured, the one thing I'm REALLY good at is shopping!!! (C can attest to this!) I will start the contest right now, and it will close Tuesday September 28th at noon.....

I really hope people take a guess, I'm excited about this! (It's the little things that seem to be pulling me through right now...)

I'm trying to keep myself busy right now, and keep my head clear and positive. I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping and that seems to be the worst time for me. Somehow things are always SO much worse at night. My back is bearable in the morning, and then by noonish, it's back to limping for me. I've done some research on the sacroiliac joint and I guess this is kinda common. 

We went out with friends last night and sat in these awful metal chairs for 4 hours, I was crying in bed last night because it hurt so damn much. Of course, today, C'c friend (who was with us and has some of the stupidest comments ever) told C that his wife was totally fine up until 8 months. Apparently C mentioned that last night was a lot for me. Um, his wife was 18 when she was pregnant with their son (she's 34 now), I'm 32, AND I started with a bad back, and I've basically spent the better part of a year and a half being pregnant! I find him annoying. This is the same guy who suggested that we consult street signs to find a better name for Wyatt! And when C told him Jackson's name he said...huh, is that your final choice? Just rude. I told C, I'm surprised he hasn't said I look fat. He's not mean, just a rude idiot. His wife is constantly rolling her eyes! 

So, I'm looking forward to all your guesses! 


  1. I vote 1 lb 9oz! Grow, Jackson, grow!

    We're also headed to the doc tomorrow, but not for a good ultrasound. Wave hello from us! :)

    I'm having some sacroiliac joint issues, too, and have been since almost the beginning. I don't have sciatica, but I can just tell I'm wildly out of alignment. It makes me feel a little better to know it's common.

  2. 1 lb 7oz

    Can't wait to read how well your u/s goes tomorrow!!

  3. Congratulations on your 100th post! And a big anti-congratulations on having such an insensitive friends making idiotic comments. If it wasn't so horrible it would be funny. I hope you can rest your back - and happy ultrasound! I am terrible at guessing weights - and even more so because I can't guess in kilograms, so I won't even try! I'm thinking of you and the scan. ((HUGS))

  4. 8 is my lucky number, so i'm gonna guess 1 lb 8 oz's. congrats on 100 posts!!! i'm glad everything is progressing nice and smoothly during this pregnancy. this is a big milestone coming up for you, so i'll be thinking of you and i'm sure the relief you WILL feel when you pass it will be immeasurable :o) remember, this is a different pregnancy and you're on bloodthinners, so you're gonna get a different (better) outcome. one that will result in a healthy and hopefully chubby baby! xoxo.

  5. stopping over from ICLW (#120). i can imagine that a milestone like 25 weeks is bittersweet for you. sending you strength and peace.

    and a guess at the weight: 2 lbs

  6. My guess is 1 lb, 11 oz. Congrats on almost 25 weeks! I can't wait to hear the details from your ultrasound!

  7. I guess 1 lb 9 oz - congratulations on your 100th post!

  8. ugh some people just dont think before they open their mouths.
    hmm I dont even know how fast babies grow at that stage so I couldnt hazard a guess! Maybe 1 lb 8 oz?

  9. I lived on a heating pad for the last 20 weeks of my pregnancy - I hope you feel better!!
