gimmicks

Today I bought Meg preggie pops. They're like sour lifesavers for pregnant women. She only ate a few, but said they helped. At this point, I would buy into any gimmick if it made her feel better! (The fact that they only cost $4.00 was an added bonus)

Bad news, preggie pops are only a short term fix (still worth trying). Good news, we stopped at Rite Aid and picked up Sea bands (apparently they work for sea sickness, motion sickness, and morning sickness) Who knew?

Oh, and they look really cool too!!! lol, Meg looks like she is sweating to the 80's. I'm not even kidding. They're slightly smaller than sweat bands, but have a white dot on the inside of your wrist.

She got over the appearance factor quickly because she actually felt like herself. She folded the wash, emptied the dishwasher, and even managed to eat half a beef cheesesteak (She hasn't eaten red meat in over 9 months, so this was huge!)

Sea bands might just be the ticket to surviving the remainder of the first trimester. Stay tuned...

  1. Have you tried ginger gum yet? I never had it but it is supposed to help with the nausea.

    Just in case she gets worried about being fashionable.

  3. Love the tip on the sea bands. I have a pair from sailing that I'll keep handy in case Sara needs it. Funny that they are like sweat bands - I'll have to get some old work out videos with Jane Fonda out :).

  4. yea, they really helped Meg yesterday (today, not so much!) She apparently heard "I think we're alone now" by Tiffany on the radio this morning and started cracking up.

  5. The gum probably does taste like ginger.

    At least the sea bands work!

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...
