hey mamas
I just signed up with I remember my friend doing this with her baby last year and it's a fun way to involve friends/fam especially the ones who are too far away to come for a baby shower. I did double check with my friend that she didn't have any issues with the site doing what they promised! It's all through paypal, and what you do is set up a betting pool with 3 guesses involved: gender of baby, date of arrival, and weight. We already know we're having a boy so it levels that question out. As the mama, you can pick the bet amount (one bet per series of guesses... so you can put in 3 different bets if you want to cover your bases) and how the distribution will go. Then e-mail everyone you know and have fun! I chose $10 for the bet (lowest amount) and 50% to the winner, 50% to the mama. The site takes 10% of the pool to cover admin. costs, and then you split the

earnings after that. Time to make some cash off this baby! 'curly girl' regina married to my man since 7/99 , SAHM to my DS (2/06) (12/08) a new to love! (11/09)
