Doctor's Appointment

I finally scheduled my first OB appointment, today. The receptionist told me that my estimated due date is December 26. She then told me that the first available appointment is May 31. I went ahead and scheduled the appointment, marking it on my calendar. When I got off the phone, I looked at the calendar to make sure I had written down the time. In doing so, I noticed that May 31 is the Feast of the Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth.

On Divine Mercy Sunday, I learned that we are definitely expecting. The baby is due during the Christmas season. I cannot help, but think that Christ and His Blessed Mother are smiling down on this little baby in my womb.


  1. Wow - it really does sound like God has you in the palm of His hand!!

  2. Could there be some naming inspiration in this? A little Elizabeth Faustina maybe? Or John for a boy?

    I am happy for you and your whole family.

    I learned I was expecting my eighth baby at the same time of year last year. I also took special interest in the feast of the Visitation....and then I saw his little heart beating for the first time on the Feast of the Sacred Heart in June! I, too, felt especially blessed to carry at the same time as the Blessed Virgin. My beautiful boy was born just 3 days before Christmas. What a wonderful cycle of feasts and Holy Days the Church provides for us! God bless you abundantly through your pregnancy.

  4. Thank you, to all of you!
    We are considering Elizabeth for a girl's name.
    Helene, what a wonderful story. The Church really does provide us with a wonderful cycle of feasts and Holy Days.
    May God bless all of your families!

  5. Oh, so exciting!!!
    My last baby was due Dec. 24th and was born Dec. 20, 2001.

    I'll be praying for you and the wee one. : )


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
