We are just about halfway through week 6. 

Meg is feeling sick. She feels crappy pretty much all day long. She's been taking Zofran, so the nausea is a little better than with Avery. 

Yesterday we woke up relatively early (so we could get to our appointment on time.) I stayed upstairs to get ready. Meg went downstairs with Avery. I was just about finished when I heard Meg cough.

I knew she was going to throw up. I just didn't foresee the events that followed.

I took a video (later in the day) to show you how Avery reacted to Meg's morning sickness. 

(Working on how to upload it from my phone) Just know She's a trip!

Our appointment went well. They wouldn't let us listen to the heartbeat...apparently it's a lot of radiation and studies show it could cause birth defects (our doc said it was highly unlikely but for insurance purposes he has to follow protocol) BUT We were able to see the beating heart. It was just as amazing as I remember. 

Everything looks perfect.

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...
