Official Luther Baby Sex/Size Pool

This Friday (Oct. 20th) is the day we find out the Luther baby's sex. Are you ready to place your bets? $5 per pick to choose the sex. Limit one bet per better. There is also a bet on the size of the Luther Baby. The national average for a 20 week old fetus is 6.46 inches from the top of the head to the base of the butt. The entire fetal length average for a 20 week old fetus is 10.08 inches. For our friends overseas, use this link to convert inches to centimeters. We are only betting on the "Crown to Base" measurements found in this chart.

Here is some help for you mathematicians: At 8 weeks the Luther baby was measured at 1.85cm. The average for 8 weeks is 1.6cm.

The Rules:
There is a $5 per quess charge for the size guesses. All money collected is going towards the purchase of a video camera that we will be using for the recording and the posting the video of the actual ultra sound as well as future postings that will include Luther family video.
Guesses should be posted as a reply to this posting. You can have multiple guesses but each guess must be an individual posting, no posting ranges all at once! Guesses will be recorded on a first come first serve basis based on the time recorded by this blog. You need to pay attention to everyone elses guesses so that you dont choose one already taken. Guesses should reflect two (2) decimal points, for example 6.48 and 6.49 are separate guesses. A guess of 6.8 will be recorded as 6.80.

The Grand Prize:
The winner of the pool is that individual that guesses the sex AND size correctly or gets the closest. The winner of the contest will be told the name(s) of the baby on Oct. 20th. The winner's name will be announced on Oct. 20th via the blog. Everyone else will have to wait until Oct. 27th to find out the name(s) Travis and Sommer have choosen. However, the person awarded the information can make whatever arrangements they want to on the blog to sell or barter the name information. They can also leave hints on the blog if they choose to. Basically, the winner of the contest can do whatever they want to do for seven days to torture everyone else, until their seven days runs out - then we will announce the name(s) officially.

So get betting!! All charges will be reflected in an invoice mailed to you when the contest is over. If you don't pay up those 3 dudes in the golf picture will be paying you a visit!

    we'll start by considering a spherical baby...

    i admit, i did take a stab at extrapolation. i just can't pull the required accuracy out of the information given.

    bill me for one wager placed for a GIRL and a crown to base measurement consistent with the published averages, of 16.45 cm. (crown to rump)

    My prediction is you crazy kids are having a Luther BOY. I feel like the little man has been doing some big time growing these last few weeks, so I will guess he will be 6.81" on Friday.
