We'll call it progress!

Meg and I went to our 39 week OB appointment this afternoon. Meg gained another 2 lbs (I think she's starting to freak out!) The technician couldn't get a clear reading of Avery's heartbeat, so she made a note in Meg's chart.

The doctor checked Avery's heartbeat with the doppler and concluded that she was in the 120 range (she's usually between 140-160). She told us that it is normal for their rate to slow down as they grow and that it was nothing to worry about. I asked her if it was an indication of labor, but she said Avery could just be sleeping.

The doctor then performed an internal exam. Meg was a "fingertip" dilated (half a cm). We'll call it progress!

Our next appointment is Monday!

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 …

Our Announcement

Many people have known about the baby since the beginning. Today we made the pregnancy Facebook official...

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!
