Baby Cone says "Hello!"
Lance and I went today for our 12 week appointment. Everything went great!! Baby Cone "Randy" (Lance's name for the baby) is measuring 2 inches right now and everything looked fine. The arms and legs are developed and Dr. Bills said he saw 10 fingers today, and the toes are not fully formed yet. We were amazed at how much Baby Cone was moving around! Baby Cone was moving so much that Dr. Bills could not get the measurements he needed! The baby finally cooperated and he was able to get the information he needed. It was amazing to watch. Baby Cone was kicking and flipping everywhere. I can't wait to feel Baby Cone kicking and moving. He said it will probably be week 18 before I can feel the movement.
I will continue to take the medication (Metformin) I was on for helping get Baby Cone here for the rest of the week. I am looking forward to being off this medication so I can return to a diet that is not so strict. As you all know, I love food and especially ice cream, so can't wait to go back to Dairy Queen! We have not been there since this summer, and that was a weekly event for us! This strict diet has been hard for me, but I know it has definitely been worth it!!
Lance and I are so thankful for all of your thoughts and prayers. This was a hard process for us to go through, but all your thoughts and prayers have made it so much easier. God's timing is not always our timing, as I have come to learn. Looking back, this timing could not have been more perfect. Continue to pray for our "Baby Cone".
