2nd Beta

This morning Meg went in for her second beta. (Technically Yesterday...I'm writing this after midnight) The nurse must've destroyed her arm because she came out saying the nurse had to "dig around." Eek!

Meg has been having a lot of bellyaches (before bed) recently. She is exhausted (all the time). She complains of sore boobs and has serious mood swings! 

She's nauseous off and on throughout the day. But, today was the first day she has had to break open the ginger chews. 

The doc called this afternoon with her blood results. Her beta came back at 783. Her progesterone was 16. Doc said everything looks fantastic! We go in for our first ultrasound on August 5th!


  1. Awesome update! Grow little baby Growwww! So happy for you ladies :)

  2. Awesome news!!! Sorry the nurse had to dog around. Happened to me too and finally she quit and went to my other arm. The whole digging is not fun! Glad all is well :)

    1. So gross! The nurse ended up switching arms with meg too!

  3. Great news! Just started following you ladies. I saw you joined the Philadelphia zoo! We live in King of Prussia!

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...
