Just writing to say that I hope everyone is safe and sound and enjoying the beautiful day despite the earthquake...

Meg and I are fine. Neither of us felt it, but we actually took a ride to Meg's parents' house because her brother called frantic (his cell phone stopped working and he couldn't get a hold of them) Turns out t-mobile had an epic fail today...guess landlines are important after all!!

To be honest, I feel as though the majority of people hyped it up only after reading tweets and facebook statuses..seems like everyone I know has changed their facebook status to something quake's kind of annoying.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great that so many places were able to evacuate safely, but I'm just cranky.

I've been trying to help out more and take care of Meg for a change, but I'm convinced that there aren't enough hours in the day!!!

Our relationship used to operate on an 80/20 scale...Meg did 80% of the work and my 20% consisted of vacuuming, cooking, sweeping the floors/stairs, taking out the trash, cutting the grass, and occasionally emptying the dishwasher.

We're now operating at 60/40...I seriously don't know how she does it! I guess I should just leave it at...we make a great team!!!

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...
