Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice

Bridget Ann is healthy, active, and in the 59th percentile for her weight at 20 weeks.
So we're looking at about an 8 pound baby, a little big for my taste, but as long as she's healthy.
She weighs 12 oz, almost 3/4 of a pound, and apparently LOVES her thumb, since it's in her mouth 3 out of the 6 pictures.
We're so thankful to God for blessing us with this healthy baby girl!

Yay! Nathan and I love having girls! : ) I love the name you picked for her too, so cute!

I know two different women who have produced smaller babies by cutting back on their sugar in the last trimester of pregnancy. One had a 7 lb 10 oz baby for her first, an 8 lb 12 oz baby for her second and just had her third (cutting out extra sugar) weighed in at 7 lb 7 oz. So if you're worried about the weight, you might try it. If you're like me, it's almost impossible (love my sugar!), but it might be worth a try. : )

That's wonderful. I wouldn't worry about an 8 lb baby too much. Zoie was 8lb 9oz. I loved it because she from the start could handle eating more and going a little longer at night. Her first night home she slept for 4 hours, then ate and went for another 4. She's been that way since birth. It doesn't always go that way but from the friends I've seen the bigger babies sometimes have less trouble getting tired when they eat and not eating enough. But as you'll quickly learn with babies nothing is "for sure."
