I was sitting in my thinking chair this evening and wondering when we might be visited by active labor and it suddenly occurred to me to have some fun with it.

Today my wife is officially one week past her due date for our new baby girl. We have been hoping for this baby to come since before the new year, but she seems to be rather content where she is. So, I've decided to call upon you, my friends, to tell me when we can expect our little bundle of joy.

This is a very simple contest for Geek Gold. I have listed below the next weeks worth of days for you to choose from. To play, simply thumb and tip 1GG for whatever day you think will be the big day. I'll total up all the GG from all the bets and divide it evenly between everyone who picked the right day. There is only one rule, you may only choose one day! Any users who choose more than one day will be disqualified.

Additionally, I will give an extra GG award to anyone who can guess the name we have chosen for her. Simply comment under the day you have selected with your guess and I'll give anyone who is correct somewhere between 10-50 GG depending on the number of correct guesses.

Here is some background information that might be helpful. Our (first) son, Christopher, was induced at two weeks late. Our (second) daughter, Aria, was eight days late. This baby is currently seven days late. We are about 95% sure of what the baby's name will be, but perhaps we could be persuaded by one of your suggestions, so we will leave that door open. However, as a clue to the name we are leaning toward, it is a classic name from literature.

I will end the contest by posting the date and time that our little girl makes her appearance. All dates will be considered to be U.S. Eastern Standard Time (NYC).

Feel free to add additional dates to the end of the list if you are feeling particularly brave. Please thumb up and share this contest so there is more for you if you win!

Good Luck, have fun, and thanks for participating!

UPDATE:

We're headed into the weekend and coming up on 2 weeks past due. I've added one more day to the voting (not sure we'll need it). For those of you who voted Tuesday - Friday, if you'd like a second chance, you can vote again by tipping 5GG (remember, winners split all GG).
