Not your average breakfast

Meg and I woke up early so we could hit whole foods for breakfast and buy chocolate chips (Meg is going to bake cookies!) We were a little early, so we decided to wait in the car. When people started rushing the door, Meg and I thought we should follow suit...I've never seen anything like it. There had to be 30+ people anxiously awaiting the store opening.

Naturally, I started cracking jokes and embarrassing Megan. The guy in front of us thought my black friday comparison was hilarious. Meg did not. lol, she also didn't appreciate my shopping cart popawheelie. Note to self...it's not a good idea to piss off a pregnant woman before she eats breakfast!!!

When the doors finally opened a mass of people rushed to fill their recyclable water jugs. Meg and I headed towards the fruit and then made our way towards the breakfast bar (clearly our priorities had nothing to do with preparing for the impending hurricane).

We picked out an apple danish and breakfast sandwich to share. All of the sudden Meg asked if they had deli pickles. I scoped it out and bought two. I'm thinking I should have bought more because when we sat down to eat breakfast Meg cracked open the deli pickle container. EWW!!!

I know. I know. You're probably thinking, get used to it Jen, it's only going to get worse. (I'm sort of afraid)

  3. Saw your link on itsmekatielou's blog and thought I'd check it out. I'm working nights and go for my second attempt at IUI tomorrow. My colleague's (who know nothing of our treatment) must think I'm insane. I am welling up reading about your fabulous news.
    I am 36 and my fiance Eleanor puts up with all the tears and drama of a failed attempt like a trouper but has no-one to support her which is awful.
    I'm looking forward to another attempt at treatment but nervous of the result, not sure I can stand another 2 week wait.

  4. I'm so glad you found us!! The tww is the worst!!! I told Meg we could stop after one baby so that I never had to go through it again! (I was only kidding)

    I know it's probably harder on Meg (she physically has put up with the "symptoms") but the tww is an emotional rollercoaster. There were times where I was overly optimistic, but after each failed attempt part of me started to doubt...it's a defense mechanism. Meg became a negative nancy.

    I wish you the best of luck tomorrow and for this cycle in general...definitely follow the blog. I'm looking forward to seeing you through the next torturous two weeks...I'll be crossing my fingers for a bfp!!! Hi, to Eleanor!

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...
