In 2007 I learned that I was gluten allergic and that it had been the cause of some very bad things in my health. I have been doing my best to avoid all glutens during this pregnancy. I did not want anything to happen to this precious little miracle because of a food.
Chris and I went over everything I ate for the last few days. We couldn't really figure out what caused it. My best guest was that it was a hidden gluten. By the middle of the night the whole right side of my body had hives.
I had Chris pray for the baby and pray that the reaction would go away. By the time I woke up this morning the hives were gone. Praise God. Chris was still concerned though and asked me to do a doppler check of the baby. He was on his way to work so I decided to do the doppler before he would call me back.
I heard lots of hiccups and movement today but the heart rate was hard to find. The placenta on top makes it hard to hear the heart beat some times. I did hear it though and was able to tell Chris when he called. He was relieved that I heard noises from our little miracle.
What a blessing it is to be able to check on the baby. I was so stressed about the hives that I was thinking about calling the doctors office if they weren't gone by the morning. Thankfully they were. God is good!
