Nursery pictures (almost done)

I'm not proud to admit that I had a serious meltdown last night. I don't know what caused it. I just know that I couldn't get Avery's new blinds up and it freaked me out. I kept harping on the idea that Meg was going to go into labor and that I wouldn't have time to finish Avery's room. I then started crying about anything and everything.

I am happy to announce that the blinds have been hung. I still need to hang the valance, but the crisis has been averted. More importantly, Avery is still snug in Meg's belly. So yea, all is well with the world again.

I promised you that I would post pictures of the nursery when it was officially done. Meg still needs to decorate and put some finishing touches on it, but overall, we're just about there.

We still need to hang maternity portraits (we're taking them this Saturday) and position Avery's life size teddy bear. The portraits will hang on both sides of the window and the bear will sit to the right of Avery's crib. (The bear is currently sitting in my trunk while the dogs adjust to life in the nursery...Heineken will undoubtedly try to rip the bear apart or hump it, so we're just trying to delay the inevitable!)

Enjoy the pictures...I really don't think they do the room justice.

  3. Wow, I love your nursery, so pretty! Did someone make the quilt or where did you get it? It's beautiful!
    Just found your blog last night and kept reading and reading until I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore!:) We'll be TTC in July, I can't wait!
    Great job on Avery's room!

    1. First off, congratulations!!! That's so exciting that you will be starting the process in the next couple of months! (Hopefully you'll find the blog helpful...I tried to make it so that people knew what to expect because we didn't-especially in the beginning!)

      My mom made the quilt and the pillow (the image on the pillow was made my best friend...she also used it on our baby shower invitation...it says A is for Avery)

      I don't think the pictures really show off the quilt, but you can get an idea. We absolutely love it.

      Mom is working on some curtains to finish everything off.

      All we need now is little Avery (hopefully not for a few more weeks!)

  4. You sound like you're having normal Mom to Be anxiety! I think I went into panic mode around 36W too-thinking he would come any second.. And he came at 41.2 weeks :)
    *Try* not to stress about the nursery too much. Again, I too NEEDED it done before he came... 6.5 months later, it's another play room that has yet to be slept in (except by the cats).
    Bottom line- Avery is going to have her own agenda and all your plans will change. I'm so excited for you both... Being a mom is amazing!

  5. Don't feel bad about the meltdown--that seems to be happening more at our house, too! I love the nursery--especially the shelves by the closet!

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...
