TWW: Day 4 and Day 5

Day 4:
Yesterday was 4 days post IUI. I didn't have a chance to blog because we spent the day at Sesame Place...We were only there for a few hours, but it was exhausting.

It was too hot to wait in the lines to meet the Sesame characters and to ride the dry rides. We spent most of our time in the Count's Splash Castle. It had a pool, a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket, multiple water slides, bridges, water guns, jets, steering water wheels and much more. Avery absolutely loved it! We also checked out the toddler section of the park, but it wasn't nearly as fun.

Here are some pictures of Avery in the water:

























Day 5:
Today we met Avery's Aunt "Zazi" for brunch at Panera Bread. It was awesome to sit down and catch up. The broccoli cheddar soup was an added bonus. 

Avery fell asleep in the car on the way home. I tried to transfer her to her crib, but she wasn't having it. So...Meg and I decided to take her to the Bucks County Children's Museum.

She had a lot of fun running around and watching the big kids. She played in the post office and store, dressed up as a police officer, used tools in the dino dig, made music with pipes, raced a lego car, manipulated the pieces of the giant lite brite, and explored port holes in the tree house. Her favorite part was definitely the slide.
































It's been a busy couple of days...so busy that Avery passed out at 6 pm tonight.

On a different note, today was the first time I thought that this IUI might have worked. I had a flashback to the spilled milk incident when we got pregnant with Avery.

Meg freaked out about the bathroom outlet being "broken" this morning (she couldn't get her straightener to turn on!) She has also been super sensitive and quick to snap. Overall, I'd summarize her behavior as irrational.

Similar to last time, she's convinced that it didn't work.

I don't know. I'm trying not to get my hopes up. The easiest way for me to rationalize her outbursts would be stress, but time will tell.

(We tested positive with Avery on Day 10. The spilled milk incident occurred on Day 4)

    1. Thanks! Doing something each day has definitely helped to keep our minds from over thinking everything. Avery is the best distraction!

      She slept for 12.5 hours last night!

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...
