Survey Says…

Obviously, no baby yet. The results of the highly-not-scientific-at-all poll for when Sarah would give birth are (N=34):


Interestingly, not a single person thought that she would deliver on the “due” date. The graph is a little distorted because the 2013 ranges are two days, and the 2014 ranges are four days – if you normalize that, you’d see that it’s top-heavy (which the bottom graph shows better).


I was also surprised to see that more than half of the respondents thought that she would deliver before the stated due date, even though 80% of women deliver after the calculated due date in their first pregnancy. Interesting!

Non-political polling

When will Sarah give birth?.

Thank God, Sarah is well, and we’re all pretty much ready (or as ready as you can be to begin a commitment for the rest of your life), but there have been some jokes about when she would deliver, so I figured that an actual poll would add pseudo-rigor to it. Science!

Kacy is bitterly upset about all of this: she is guarding Sarah, and is about to have her life change dramatically – she’s all jealous, and is acting out a lot already. Hopefully she will adapt well: at least we aren’t getting a puppy!
