Baby #2- 14 weeks!

Baby #2 is growing well and heart beat continues to sound great!!! What a blessing it is to hear that little beat. I have to take insulin now at night before I go to bed for my gestational diabetes. It has really helped my sugars. Let me tell you, I've done all I humanly can to get my sugars to be good w/ out insulin. I never eat healthier than when I'm preggo. Continue praying for the baby and for my blood sugar issues, Since I am now considered "high risk".

Here's what baby center has to say about 14 weeks:
Welcome to the second trimester! This week's big developments: Your baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee, and possibly suck his thumb. Thanks to brain impulses, his facial muscles are getting a workout as his tiny features form one expression after another. His kidneys are producing urine, which he releases into the amniotic fluid around him — a process he'll keep up until birth. He can grasp, too, and if you're having an ultrasound now, you may even catch him sucking his thumb. In other news: Your baby's stretching out. From head to bottom, he measures 3 1/2 inches — about the size of a lemon — and he weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
