It's Official...again

This morning we went to RMA for Meg's pregnancy test.

When we came home she decided to "pee on a stick." I guess she needed some reassurance (we haven't tested since day 10)

With two dark lines, there wasn't any doubt in our minds that she was pregnant

Still, we needed to hear it officially.

Rather than wait around, we decided to take Avery to the zoo. 

We were only there for a few hours before Avery passed out. On our way back to the car we received our "Congratulations!"

Meg's beta was 193. Progesterone was 19. We go back Monday for more bloodwork.

So surreal.


  1. O.M.G! Congratulations and on the first try - that's amazing! Avery's going to be such a cute big sis. :) We've pushed my first IUI back a few months, but here's hoping some of your luck will rub off on me!

    1. Thank you so much! We still can't believe it!

      I'm sorry you had to push back your IUI. We will definitely send positive vibes when the time comes!

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...
