Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice!

Our precious little blessing is a girl!
Estimated arrival: April 8th
She's almost a pound at 13 ounces & very healthy at 5 months 3 days.
Wives tales that predicted a girl:
  • Had lots of morning sickness (still having some!)
  • Sleeping in bed with pillow to the south (that's the way our bed faces)
  • Feet are not colder than they were before pregnancy (colder feet = boy)
  • Refuse to eat the heel of a loaf of bread (never did that anyway)
  • Nose is the same size now as always (boys make mama-noses big)
  • Want orange juice daily
  • When people asked to see my hand, I showed my palm
  • Maternal grandmother does not have grey hair (dyed or natural)
  • Not having headaches
  • Necklace over the stomach went in circles not back and forth
  • The "popular" vote was girl, around 20 girl votes to 5 boy votes

Wives tales that were "true" for me that predicted a boy, but we're having a girl

  • Hair on legs is growing faster than usual
  • Dad-to-be is gaining weight (Ha! He gained 5 unnoticeable pounds that he already lost!)
  • Urine is a bright neon color (guess I need more water)
  • Have a craving for salty or sour foods (still craving these things)
  • Been craving cheese (Usually, not a cheese fan)
  • Used the handle to grab a mug instead of the body
  • Folks are saying mom-to-be looks good (Sisterlocks photo below is at 14 weeks pregnant)
  • Sum of the mother's age at conception and number of the month of conception is even

Shows what good those "wives tales" are!!

We'll keep our trust in the Lord (smile)!
