27 Weeks

Yesterday, I had another ultrasound. My doctor turned on the ultrasound's 3-D capability at one point, and my husband and I were amazed to see our baby as though he was right there. Baby's heartbeat was 149 and he weighs 2 lbs 10 oz. I love this little one, but that's nothing new.

Breech Position

When we got home, the children were in awe, commenting, "Look at the baby's ear." "You can see the eyebrows." "He looks like a boy." "She looks like a girl." I find it so much fun to keep the baby's sex a surprise.

My Jesus mercy. Thy will be done in my life and in my death.

After my doctor finished the ultrasound, he told me that I have gestational diabetes again. My husband and I were not surprised, as I have been feeling kind of funny an hour or two after I eat and/or if I don't eat for a while. I had also tested my blood sugar levels two hours after breakfast one morning and the reading was high. Hopefully, I can control the blood glucose levels with my diet again. Due to the gestational diabetes, the baby's stomach is larger than normal. I have another appointment next week, during which time the doctor will "check on the baby" and I will meet with the dietitian.

I am thankful that this baby moves a lot and that my anemia isn't bad enough to warrant my taking iron supplements.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed and/or told me that they are continuing to pray for baby (and for me).


  1. Congratulations! Praying all goes well for you. Take care of yourself. May God bless you - it looks like he already has!

  2. I stumbled upon your beautiful blog. You have a wonderful family, and another beautiful addition on the way. I love reading blogs by Catholic wives and mothers. I will be following your blog.

    My sister and I got the itch to start a blog ourselves just recently. Feel free to visit us as we too rejoice in the vocation of wife and mother.


  3. Hi Christine,

    I too like to wait and find out the gender at birth!

    What cutie! I think baby looks like a boy! It will be fun to find out!

    I go to see my OB next week to see if he wants me to see a dietition or not. I had to go in last week for the 3hr test and my 2hr draw was 172 then came down to 136 at the 3hr mark. It was 90 at fasting then 126 at the 1hr draw.
    They checked my iron and it was low so my doc has me on iron suppliments!

    How much longer to you have?
    Was it the begining of May?

    Peace and Prayers for you and baby,


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