How?

I couldn't take it any longer. I had to tell my mom. I thought about finding some clever way to share the news, but blurting it out seemed like the best option (I'm not good with surprises!). "Mom, I have to tell you something before I explode...Meg is pregnant."

She almost spit out her banana! She paused for a second and said, "What." So, I told her again..."Megan is pregnant." "Ok," she responded, but "How?"

I giggled and said, "We bought sperm!" "You mean you just went to a store and picked up sperm?" she asked. "No, we ordered it on the internet!"

She asked how Meg was feeling and if anyone else knew. She then told me to start picking out a boy's name (everyone around us seems to be pregnant with girls).

After about a half hour of talking I had to leave to go meet a friend for breakfast, but I decided to text my mom and thank her for being supportive. She called me back crying. I asked her why she was crying and she told me, "This is great. We needed this."

Dad text me later on saying, "Is it true? Am I really going to be a grandpa? I owe you both a big hug. You're going to make awesome parents. Love you"

Talk about a great way to start your day!!! After breakfast, I drove 40 minutes to catch Meg on her lunch break...I needed to see her smile and give her a hug.

I then went to share the news with my Nana and my aunt. Again, I was greeted with "how?" Mom and I just laughed.

It's been an emotional day. I'm absolutely exhausted.

I'm very fortunate to have such a loving and supportive family. I just hope we get the same reaction from Meg's family...stay tuned.

    Try this...EVERYONE we know has done it, and it's accurate. My mom went back and did it for me and my brother, my cousins have gone back and done it for their kids...etc...it says we are having a boy! Can't wait.

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...
