Killing Time!

Let me start by saying this has been the longest morning EVER! Meg woke me up at 6 am to tell me how excited she was (Today is our baby shower!) We had breakfast, caught up on our TV shows, and still had way too much time to kill. I took a nap. Meg filed some bills and we started getting ready around 10:00 knowing that we are permitted to arrive at my mom's house no earlier than 11:30.

Well, it's currently 10:48 and I'm sitting here fully dressed, super anxious, and blogging!

Meg looks beautiful (as always). Her belly is growing by the second. She has been suffering from some round ligament pain recently and has also become more tired. She's back to going to bed before 9 (just like when she first got pregnant). She wakes up often during the nights to use the bathroom and readjust (stupid leg pain), but overall is still sleeping well.

Many of you have asked about contractions. To date, she has not had any braxton hicks contractions (knock on wood).

Ok, well it's almost time to go, so I'll post pictures and details from the shower later!!

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...
