the calm before the storm

I intended to take Meg to see the Help tonight, but she got out of work a few minutes late (we would have been rushing had she not) so we decided to bail on those plans. I tossed out the idea of mini golf, but we hadn't eaten dinner, so that was out.

We scoured the kitchen in search of something, but it was pretty much useless. SOOO...we drove to the grocery store and took a stroll down the organic aisle (I'm allergic to sulfites (preservatives), so we only eat organic food). We settled on mozzarella sticks and pizza stuffed pretzels (despite reading the caloric information). It wouldn't have been a true junk food fest had we not had some organic soda to wash it all down, so down the aisle we went.

Before we left the store, we stopped to check out the movies at redbox. Meg selected Season of the Witch, but then added Arthur to the cart (redbox conned her into renting it by telling her it would only cost an additional 50 cents!) lol!!!

So, now we're home. Our bellies are uncomfortably full and as much as I hate to admit it, Russel Brand is oddly entertaining.

I know Meg was really looking forward to seeing the Help, but I'd venture to say that tonight has turned into a great night. One thing's for sure, it reminded me of why I fell in love with Megan. She's the only person in the world that can make a random trip to the grocery store and a movie at home romantic and fun. <3

Oh, I almost forgot...tomorrow is Day 9. We're getting closer and closer to testing time (Meg just asked me when we can test) She's so cute sometimes. I feel calm, but also unbelievably anxious. Is that even possible?

I know I've said it before, but I REALLY hope this works.

  1. Meg and I are on the same schedule (tomorrow is my Day 9, too!) So I am following you all closely. Hoping this is "THE" cycle for you both!

  2. YAY!!! So excited to have a cycle buddy! I hope this cycle works for both of us!!! I go back and forth. On one hand I feel like it might and on the other I think I'm not that lucky. When are you going to test? You'll have to keep us posted!!!

10 weeks

Today we had our last appointment at RMA. It was bittersweet. We were able to spend some much needed time with Doctor Castlebaum. I know I have said it before, but he's seriously fantastic! 
The baby was moving all over the place. It was all amazing! 









We left something for them to remember us...


We will miss them dearly!



Our terrifying 20 week anatomy scan

We had our 20 week anatomy scan on Tuesday. Meg was actually 21 weeks. We told the ultrasound technician that we didn’t want to know the sex. The baby wasn’t cooperating, but we watched as she took pictures of the brain, spine, heart, etc. Everything looked good...or so we thought.
After the ultrasound we went into a different room for our appointment. The nurse practitioner checked the baby’s heartbeat (165) and asked Meg how she was feeling. 
Megan told her that she’s still feeling nauseous and is still taking diclegis at night.
All of the sudden the nurse practitioner nonchalantly handed me a paper and said “the ultrasound technician found a nodule on the baby’s neck. The doctor wants you to call this number and schedule an appointment with a perinatal specialist.”
On the back of the paper it had information about maternal screening and Down syndrome. I asked the nurse practitioner if they thought the baby had Down syndrome and she said it was just a sheet of paper with hospital phone …

Everything is better when you're at the beach

Four years ago Megan and I brought Avery to Ocean City, New Jersey for a mini family vacation. There, we tested positive (on Day 10) with Harper. We were surrounded by friends and family and minus the fact that Avery got her first bad ear infection and the trip ended with us in a NJ emergency room, it was perfect.
Today is Day 10 and again we are in Ocean City with family and friends. We went to bed REALLY late. I had a hard time falling asleep and when I did I had dreams about testing. Harper just woke me up to go to the bathroom (she rarely does that). It's 3:20AM Megan just took a pregnancy test and the results are in...
