Baby Update

Just thought I would update how our little guy is doing. I am now almost 29 weeks pregnant. Right at the peak of when things start to go down hill fast for babies of diabetic moms. When I was this far along with Reese threats of hospitalization had already been occurring for sometime; her amniotic fluid was out of control (I had way too much), she was getting really big, my blood sugars were next to impossible to keep in a good range, I was having contractions, it was a mess. With this little guy, I really feel like the team of doctors I am working with are miracle workers. Baby is still at an average weight and on the same growth curve he started at, the amniotic fluid is fine, my blood sugars are not horrible and I feel much more calm about the whole situation. Right now our biggest concern is how early he might be (but things are looking good) and whether or not he will have to endure a NICU stay after he is born. As we get closer to meeting him, please keep he and I in your prayers. We would love to avoid the whole NICU situation.
