Realizations and 15 week photos!!!

Meg and I came to a few realizations today...

1. Gap Maternity has one of the most organized and stylish maternity sections that we have come across thus far. It even had a bathroom!!! With the sale ($40 off every $100 you spend), it was the perfect place to purchase a dress for Meg's cousin's upcoming wedding!

2. The stores A Pea in a Pod, Motherhood Maternity, and Destination Maternity are not one in the same! While they accept the same gift card, $75 to A Pea in a Pod buys virtually nothing! Seriously, the jeans were $119.50!!! For that price, they should automatically dress you! Needless to say, we did NOT buy a pair. Instead, Meg purchased a shirt and a boppy pillow...(which brings me to my next realization)

3. The boppy body pillow is loved by both pregnant women and dogs! (funny how they don't advertise that on the brochure) *WARNING* The pillow may cause your wife to speak in a whiney voice until you correctly position it...take my advice, DO NOT tell her she needs to stop whining!

Bailey loves his mommy and her boppy!














While Meg is almost 16 weeks pregnant, here are her 15 week photos (as promised). If you backtrack to the 12 week pictures you can definitely notice a difference...It's funny, people are starting to tell her she's putting on weight (she has only gained 4 lbs)..my family members even reached out to touch her belly last night. LOVE IT!

Rocking her new maternity bday outfit!





















Her belly is definitely low...does that mean it's going to be a boy?

Getting bigger!!!

  1. As with everything else pregnancy related, I'm sure the "low belly" means nothing and will change as it grows.

  2. Tommie's belly is low too. And it's funny cuz we found gap maternity not helpful at all! But I think that's cuz Tommie is only 5'2 and gap didn't have much in the short or petite department. We went to motherhood and found everything we needed - we only bought jeans though. As for shirts, again since Tommie is so short, most regular shirts will fit as they are usually super long anyways!

    Did ya'll but the standard boppy or one of the others? I need to get Tommie one but wasn't sure which is best.

  3. Compared to Old Navy and Target, the Gap was amazing! We like Motherhood maternity..it was the pea in the pod that was outrageous!

    As for the boppy, I'm not sure what it's called (I'll have to go look at the package) but it's the one you can wrap all around your body. It was $54 plus tax. They also had another one called a snoodle or something like that.

    Meg slept well! I want one!!

    I hear you on the sizes..that's one of the problems we found with old navy and target. The clothes are scattered everywhere-makes it extremely difficult to find xsmall and small.

  4. Oh my goodness! I love these pictures.

    And my sister still sleeps with her boppy-those things are incredible.

  5. I swear, every time I think of you and think I should message you, you beat me to it! Doesn't she look cute?

    As far as the boppy goes, I'm so jealous!!! If they weren't $50 I'd buy myself one!!!

    How are you?

  6. Just saw your comments. I wish blogger would notify when people respond to comments. Maybe that's too much like facebook.

    I'm doing well, but I miss you both.

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...
