Zoe Claire

"Violet" has become "Zoe," and she's well ahead of the curve at 6+ pounds, even at 33 weeks. The perinatalogist predicted a nine-pound baby if we go to term. Ouch.

We're past the point of worrying about a premature birth. A first premature birth is the best predictor for future premature births, so we've been relaxing after Zoe passed week 29, the point when Molly was born. Now we're worried about the opposite effect: letting the baby get too big, which is a nice problem to have after the drama of Molly's birth.

Another sonogram pic is here.
