Here is my little man, at 34 weeks 4 days. We had a growth scan and he is TOTALLY AVERAGE!!! 5lbs 11oz, which is the 61st percentile for size. His amniotic fluid index is 16, which is also totally average. That means that my blood glucose control is absolutely perfect. I spend a lot of time guilting myself about it, convinced I'm doing it all wrong, but it's nice to have proof that I am in fact doing it right.

The ultrasound went great, the little bit of extra fluid in his tummy last time was gone, meaning that last time he just took a big gulp during the u/s. His kidneys look GREAT, so does everything else in fact. He was kicking his own umbilical cord, like last time, and just like EVERY u/s, that blob in front of his face is his foot. He was active and wiggly, which is characteristic of him at this point.

And he's HEAD DOWN!!!! Woohoo, he figured it out! He is also NOT sunny side up currently, but he goes back and forth every day or so, and since I'm having an epidural I'm not too concerned about it. My doctor says that as long as he's head down, that's what matters.

We have another growth scan in 4 weeks- if I haven't delivered yet that is! He seems pretty comfortable though, I think he's going to stay in there until we kick him out, sometime around May 14th.

I had my baby shower Sunday, and I am overwhelmed by the generosity of my family and friends. This kid now has one of EVERYTHING!!! And Grant and I were just surrounded by love, it was really wonderful. He is one loved baby

that is wonderful Rebecca !!!
trying to control diabetes is tough enough at times without being pregnant...
it is hard work, and lots of discipline....and most of all patience. I thought for sure I was out of wack too.....but my A1C was at a 5.7 when I had Katie !

great job mama, you should be VERY proud of yourself !!

I bet you were so relieved to hear you have an "average" baby!!! That's great news and I imagine a diabetic diet while pregnant is a challenge. Good for you for making it work.
