    If you have to ask, you're guaranteed not to get it.

    How about we just get our name in bold I didn't ask though. I suggested, which is nearly as bad, but not quite. But I did beg, damn.

    I was sitting in math recently and had the funny conception that babies were born with a weight that was like, 10 ounces, and then remembered that a soda can was 12 fl.oz. and had a good laugh about all the things implied by that misconception.

    Here's the "insider" "information":

    So my wife took a standard two week combined handicap for a first girl.

    I am guessing boy, for no real reason, so I went with bigger and later.

    At this point I doubt she's dropped yet, and I sincerely doubt we'd see a picture to see how she's carrying anyway -- so lacking gender hints the rest is just really a guess. But there is some fun in that.

    There. Now we can argue about these myths/common wisdoms/wives tales I presented too.

    It's funny, I thought the same thing. Once I took the time to think it through it became clear that it's in pounds, not ounces.

    Weird that we have had the same experience.
