My dear friend Kathy emailed me today. Thanks Mare! I really appreciate your concern.
She suggested me this prayer.
I printed this and will pray later before going to bed and when I woke up tomorrow. I wanted this prayer to be my everyday prayer until this baby comes out. I know that we will be fine. I am being positive.
Prayer for Expectant Mothers #2
O Good Saint Anne,
who had the incomparable privilege of bringing into the
Her who was to become the Mother of God,
I come to place myself
under your special care.
I confide myself to you,
together with the child I am carrying.
Thousands of children owe you,
Glorious Mother of Mary,
the life of the body and the grace of baptism.
Hence I wish, in my turn,
to place my whole confidence in you.
Make me keep in mind the precautions I need to take
so as not to endanger in any way the health,
good qualities or the eternal salvation
of the child whose very existence
God has placed in my care.
Obtain for me
the virtues you did teach Her who was to be the Mother of
so that I may afterwards
instil and develop them
in the heart of my child.
O Good Saint Anne,
protect me today and forever.
I know that you will not refuse your intercession
to a mother who invokes you with confidence.
Please continue praying for us.
We are going to my OB today.
I am so bothered about the impression on my ultrasound so we need to consult our doctor about it. The radiologist said I am low normal on my amniotic fluid. I researched about it and read a lot of not so good stuff. I am worried. I guess it is better to go to my OB and hear her advice. I cried about this a few days ago and hubby just can’t take it seeing me so worried so we opted to go to the OB today. I just hope that me and our baby will be fine. I cannot handle another trauma on this one.
Please pray for me and the baby. We badly need it.
Today is my first ultrasound check up. And we are so excited as we really wanted to know the gender of our baby.
And look!!!! We’re having a baby GIRL!!!!
Hubby and I are full of joy today. We can’t wait to meet this little girl of ours!
The baby is normal according to the ultrasound. I am now on my 26th week and 2 days.
I went to my OB yesterday and performed a laboratory test for my blood glucose. I was given a 240ml Orange drink. I drank it and waited an hour for it to take effect. Then the medical technician got some blood samples from me. And I kept on praying and praying while waiting for the result. When she handed me the paper I went straight to my OB and ask her to read the result. I felt sad when she told me that I am POSSIBLE for Gestational Diabetes. =( As she was explaining what that was to me and my husband, a lot of things are running through my head. I was thinking if I had that also during my pregnancy with my first born Huey. Maybe that was one of the reason why he was a special child? And I was also blaming myself for not watching what I eat. I gained a lot on my first pregnancy and I didn’t even remember my OB (different from my current) ask me to perform those tests. Hmp!
I wanted all the best to make this baby healthy. And I will do everything to make him/her normal when he/she comes out. And who cares if my foods are tasteless? And my milk tastes like fresh milk? Or my after meal dessert will be skipped. WHO CARES!!! I can do this! AJA!
Please pray for me.
Thanks in advance!
