31 week photos and a special congrats!

For starters, Meg and I would just like to congratulate our friends Kathleen and Julie on the birth of their daughter, Adalyn (soon to be one of Avery's best friends!) She's absolutely adorable! We're very happy to report that everyone is doing well!

I think Meg is officially freaked out though! She is 32 weeks this Wednesday and is getting bigger by the minute. She's sleeping more comfortably now that she's changed rooms at work (she's no longer chasing 1-2 year olds around all day. Instead she's playing with the babies!) BUT...the impending delivery is causing her some angst.

Avery is fantastic. She hiccups regularly, which is oddly amusing. On one hand we feel bad and wish we could make them stop, but on the other hand, we can't help, but think that they are the cutest thing in the world (added bonus, they help develop her lungs!)

We're reading Dr. Seuss books all week in honor of his birthday (last night we read Green Eggs and Ham). Meg swears that Avery loves when I read because she starts moving right away. Apparently she also likes when I sing (I was jamming out to some Sandy and Danny Grease action last night)...mom says that Avery was just moving to cover her ears!

lol, probably makes more sense...mom always said that she encouraged me to play the saxophone because I couldn't sing and play at the same time!

Anyhow, here are Meg's 31 week photos:























Avery is the weight of 4 navel oranges (about 3.3 lbs)

Bonus picture: Meg's "To do list"...Reason 1,579,900,831 why I love her!!!!

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...
