7 weeks 4 days

After our last photo session I started thinking that the size of the toy should reflect the actual size of the baby.

While I love this chart I found on Pinterest...



I think the girls are confused about the size of the baby. I scoured the internet trying to find actual sizes of the characters and the only thing I could find was an image of their silhouettes in size order (it doesn't specifically say their size). 

That being said, I went rogue and searched through the girls' toys to map out the weeks. I plan to incorporate princesses and other Disney characters (not just Pixar). It's going to be great!!

At 7 weeks 4 days, our baby is slightly bigger than 0.5 inch. In our world, that translates to Cinderella's glass slipper!





It's amazing how something so small can make you so sick!!! 

Here is a video from today's ultrasound...



And our pictures..





We go back next Thursday to see some arm stumps (Dr. Castlebaum calls it the Teddy Graham phase)!

In other news, we are going to officially announce our pregnancy in October while in Disney World!! The girls are pumped. We are going to go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! Meg and I are excited to celebrate our 10 year anniversary at the happiest place on Earth! 

It's going to be hard to keep it a secret for 60+ more days. Meg's pants are already getting tight.

6.5 weeks

The baby is about the size of an ant. It was very difficult to find this week's Disney character, but thanks to eBay we now own Flik (from A Bug's Life)





Added bonus...I found a few pictures from when we went to Disney and met Flik in Animal Kingdom!!




Harper was too afraid to go near Flik, but she did pose with Baloo and King Louie


She was so little!!

Heartbeat

I just realized that I never blogged after our last appointment!!!

We saw the heartbeat!!! It was amazing. I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to record during the appointment, but I did it anyway...enjoy!



Baby #3 and his/her fetal pole


The proud big sisters!


Updates:
We are waiting for our special figurine to arrive to take our next weekly photograph. 

We received a voicemail from Dr. Castlebaum Friday evening congratulating us and saying that he sent a message to our OB saying "we won again." He also said he missed our family and hopes to see us for one ultrasound before we graduate...Reason 1,572,864 why we love him!!!

Meg started a new medicine..diclegis...she takes one at bedtime and it helps her morning (all day) sickness. She still has bouts of nausea, but it is much more manageable now! 

We go back to the doctors Friday, August 4!

Pregnancy Photos

I've decided to take our weekly pregnancy pictures in a different direction this time around. Instead of using food, the girls will be using Disney characters.

Week 5...

We are filled with JOY that the first ultrasound went well. The baby is the size of a sesame seed (0-4mm) 




I will post week 6 picture after our ultrasound on Thursday! I'll make sure to get a picture of Meg too...she's struggling to function lately!

First Ultrasound

This morning we had our first ultrasound for baby 3...we saw the gestational sac and yolk sac. The doctor says everything looks perfect! 





The doctor just called with Meg's bloodwork. Her hcg is up to 20,201 and her progesterone is at 20. We go in for our next ultrasound next Thursday. We will hopefully get to see the heartbeat (fingers crossed!)

Megan is feeling pretty sick these days. It's different than with the girls. She has an overwhelming feeling of nausea and terrible acid reflux. 

We are heading to the beach tomorrow. Should be a fun weekend!
