Feeling Crappy

Today was the first time we saw Meg's parents (since telling them about the pregnancy). Meg and I were both a little apprehensive as we had not heard from her dad.

Meg's parents met us at the door, but Meg had to run in to get a banana (she was feeling a little queasy). With a chunk of banana in her mouth, she kissed her dad and said, "hi." Her dad hugged her and said congratulations. Before we could sit down her mom asked if we were having a boy or girl. Meg laughed and said it is too soon to tell. Clearly they were excited.

We played a card game called 5 crowns...I annihilated everyone!!! (I can say this proudly because I always lose!) Meg's parents asked questions randomly. Meg thought it was a little awkward, but I found it comforting to finally have an open conversation with them.

We went to dinner at whole foods. There we discovered that Meg's dad's family has a history of, go figure...if we are meant to have twins, then so be it.

The ride home was awful. Not only were there torrential downpours, but Meg felt really sick. She thought she was going to throw up (she burped and a little came up...gross, right?!) but she also said she might need to stop and use the bathroom. I had her sip on ginger ale and tried to distract her.

When we got home Meg ran right into the bathroom. Apparently pregnancy makes you feel like you're going to have diarrhea, but when you try, you can't. How horrible is that?!?!

Meg put on pajamas and curled up on the couch. She munched on a plain, dry bagel and finished the ginger ale. She watched a little bit of Independence Day before asking if we could go upstairs.

So yea, it's 7:15 and Meg's going to bed...


  1. HAHAHAHAHA - oh yeah - did I mention we were going to bed by 715 - 730 at the latest the first week or two? Tommie said to take a nap and then you might get lucky and go to sleep at 8! It's better now, but she takes naps daily...and I really mean 3 or 4 hour naps!

  2. Hi- We found your blog last Friday after getting off the phone with RMA NY to schedule our second IUI attempt. We were looking for some success stories to keep our thoughts positive after unsuccessful first try. Congratulations and look forward to following along!

  3. Hi, babymamas! I'm so glad you found us. RMA of Philadelphia is great, so I'm sure you're in good hands. TTC is an emotional rollercoaster...know that you're not alone.

    Meg and I felt discouraged up until our bfp. If there is anything I can do to make the process easier please let me know..even if it's just listening to you vent.

    You should check out babycenter. They have forums for everything under the sun. The women are unbelievably supportive. It's truly remarkable.

    Best of luck to you both!

    Tommie & Natalie-Meg officially made it close to 9 o'clock...she got sucked into Big Brother. She said she was exhausted, but her brain was wide awake...I think she's excited for student teaching.

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...
