29 week OB appointment and Day 9

Today Meg and I went to the OB and saw another new doctor. She was great! She went over the results from Meg's glucose test (they were normal) and told us that Meg is not anemic (we weren't surprised to hear that!).

In terms of the leg cramps, she assured us that they are normal and suggested Meg eat more potassium (bananas and orange juice). Little does she know that Meg does both of those things every day!

Avery is doing well...healthy and growing. Her heartbeat was in the 130's.

Our next appointment is February 20th.

Now, onto Day 9!

Day 9 consisted of a black and white picture of Megan and I (from her graduation party), a chocolate candy bar (which looked like a dollar bill) that said "you're one in a billion" AND a note that said, "Pictures may be worth 1,000 words, but our love is priceless."


  1. Glad to hear it all went well! And that your GIRL has a heartrate in the 130s. Ours was there, too, and the midwife said that superstitious people would say that it was a boy. Happy to hear that there's still a chance for little frilly dresses in my future!

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 …

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!
