Countdown to the end of pregnancy brain

Wow! 100 days! The countdown will officially drop into double digits tomorrow...kind of scary!

As we near the third trimester, all is well. Meg's belly continues to get bigger by the day. She looks great, but more importantly, she feels great (aside from twinges here and there).

Of course, as I'm writing this, she's in downward dog, complaining about leg cramps/aches...probably because she did so much cleaning this weekend!!! (She was busy nesting while I cleaned the house for her graduation party)

She'll probably kill me for writing this, but that's never stopped me before...Her pregnancy brain has been taken over by clumsiness. When I went to meet her for lunch, I had to walk over a mess of salt (must've been icy this morning) First thing that came to my mind was..."I hope Meg got into the mall safely!"

Seriously...she broke a glass this afternoon (it slipped out of her hand as she was unloading the dishwasher). Less than an hour later, she knocked over the entire bin of dog kibbles!

She just admitted misspelling a word at her training today...apparently her group had to write out everything before she was allowed to copy it onto the poster! lol

Poor Meg...maybe I'll stand a chance at kicking her ass at Jeopardy tonight!


  1. Ha! I get escorted to and from the store at the end of our street because my wife doesn't trust me to not get run over anymore. Glad to hear I'm not alone!

  2. lol, thanks for the smile...I needed that!!! (you're definitely not alone!)

  3. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who longs for the chance to kick my partner's ass at Jeopardy! Maybe she should try this pregnancy thing......

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 …

First Ultrasound

Had I known that Meg wouldn't remember her blood results moments after speaking to the doctor, I would have blogged hours ago...(beta ??; progesterone is holding strong at 15)

Today was our first ultrasound and I have to admit that, up until this point, I was excited, but still in total disbelief. I don't know how to explain it. We have had 4 positive pregnancy tests and several blood tests that confirmed it, but I guess I needed to see it in order to believe it.

Here is our first picture (I've been dying to post it!)...

If you're like my mom, you're probably thinking it looks like a watermelon seed, but the dark oval is the gestational sac (where the baby develops). You can also see the yolk sac (the small white circle in the upper left of the sac), which is the source of nutrients for the fetus.

All in all, Doc says everything looks perfect and it was exactly what she wanted to see. Our next appointment is Friday, September 2nd.

Time to celebrate and recreate …

The big reveal!!!!

It’s a...GIRL!!! Makenzie Ryan is expected 3/19/18!
