LONNNNNG Day!

Today was a lonnng day...I woke up an hour before my alarm and had a hard time falling back to sleep.

Meg called me around 7 (right before she was about to leave) to tell me that two stray kittens were hiding under her car...

Long story short, our neighbor is a crazy cat lady! She gets a thrill out of feeding stray cats despite the fact that they procreate exponentially. It's a real problem.

Don't get me wrong, I love kittens. In fact, it wasn't that long ago that Meg and I were trying to catch them in pillow cases and send them to good homes (we rescued several of them!)

Anyhow, "mommy cat" had a litter of 3 kittens. They're still very young, but old enough to wonder and evidently climb under Meg's car.

Meg managed to scare the one away, but couldn't find the second kitten. She swore that it was underneath her car, so she got down on her hands and knees to search. She honked the horn, stomped around the car...nothing. She turned the car on...still nothing.

It wasn't until she drove a few miles that she saw the kitten roll out from under her car in her rearview mirror. She didn't hit it, but she was hysterical. I couldn't even make out what she was saying.

Fast forward a few hours...we drove by the area where the kitten rolled out and saw no evidence of "foul play." We're hoping that it rolled off into the woods (after it got over the initial shock) or someone saw it and picked him/her up)

Either way, Meg is ok and her car wasn't impacted.

On a happier note, my childhood friend just stopped over to give Meg and I a bunch of pregnancy/parenting magazines, outfits, a book about pregnancy, and a baby due date countdown. (Thanks so much, Mariss!!!)

The baby due date countdown thingamajig is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I programmed today's date and the baby's due date (April 25th) and it's counting down the seconds...only 225 days left!

Can't wait to see the little teddy graham tomorrow!

  1. Oh no! I understand why she would get upset about that.

    One time my friend was taking her kitten to the vet and it crawled up underneath her dashboard of her jeep and got stuck between the dash and the engine and she had to have a mechanic take the dashboard apart to retrieve the kitten. It was crazy.

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...
