TWW: Day 2

Today, Meg and I took Avery to a birthday party! 

She LOVED it! She went inside her first inflatable moon bounce (specifically designed for toddlers) She tried to run up the slides (not sure why she is obsessed with breaking the rules!) She went on the swings, sat on a mermaid's lap (it was a little mermaid theme) and even got her first tattoo (a fish)

Here are some of my favorite pictures...









The best part of MY day happened when we were out at dinner. We went to our local organic pizza place. Meg picked a table close to the door. 

In walked a young boy with his family. He peeked at our pizza and asked his mom why we had so much. She encouraged him to ask us. I told him Avery is a growing girl. He then asked why she had two moms. Fortunately I had a few extra seconds to think of an appropriate response...meg thought he asked why Avery had two arms and proceeded to answer! (Lol!) He giggled and then asked again. My reply..."because she's lucky!"

He then went on talking about his family and how he has a mom and dad and a brother and if he had another mom one could do this and the other could do that...

His mom interjected and said she liked my answer. She said that she was raised to believe that love is love. It just needs to be happy and healthy.

The family walked away and my faith in humanity was restored...well, at least until my sweet, little, 6 year old friend walked out the door and said, "what the f$@k?"

The silver lining...at least he knew I was a girl (I was wearing a baseball hat!)

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 …

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!
