FINALLY!!! It was only a matter of time before we heard some good news...

Today, Meg had her 41 week appointment. They took us back to exam room 3...hooked her up to the monitors for a nonstress test. Avery was very active and looked great. Meg even had 3 minor contractions. Unfortunately Meg showed no progress in terms of dilation.

Are you ready for the good news??? The doctor said, "It's time."

We are scheduled to go to the hospital tonight at 6. There, we will be greeted by one of our favorite doctors. She will give Meg Cervidil to help ripen her cervix (and will hopefully calm Meg's nerves...she's good like that!)

Tomorrow morning another doc will come in to check Meg's progress. She will most likely break Meg's water and administer Pitocin.

Avery will hopefully be born on May 3rd and follow in the footsteps of her family (Meg-November 3, Uncle Eddie-October 3rd, Grandpop-September 3rd, Cousin Ryleigh-January 3rd)

As our dogs play on the floor and as we sit here watching TV, it's so exciting to think that we will soon be a family of 3!!!

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...
