When a good friend of ours was pregnant, my husband decided to search for a great site so that we could start up a baby pool for her. We thought it would be fun for our group of friends to guess when she would actually deliver her baby. During the search he found that there really weren’t any sites that he really liked, and therefore began his quest to make his own. From that Pregnancy Pool began. So what exactly is it? A Pregnancy Pool is a FREE and fun way for family and friends to get involved in guessing when your little one will arrive. We all know a baby comes when he/she is ready…but why not have a little fun in the mean time?
One of the greatest parts about the site is that it’s totally free. All you do is create an account on the homepage, then send the link for your pool to all your family and friends. They then come to the site and make their guess. You can have them guess the date, gender and weight. They can even leave comments and well wishes!
For our friend we used the weight as a tie breaker if two people guessed the same date. It’s fun to see what people think. I’m always amazed at the weights people come up with!
How to sell it to the dads? Tell them it’s like gambling! Men love to bet on anything don’t they? I know my husband certainly does. Best of all it allows other people to get involved in this big and important time in your life.
I can’t wait to set up my pool. Since we already know we are having a boy, the weight will have to be our tie breaker. I am extremely curious what people are going to have to say. Let’s hope they don’t think I’m having a big baby because I’m terrified of that! Let’s keep him small people!
