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!

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...
