I have been on disability since March 2013. (Long that warrants a separate blog) I started a new job two weeks ago. I'm still teaching 5th grade and so far I love it. I'm still having health issues so it has been a HUGE transition (physically and emotionally)

That being said, I wanted to give you a quick update. Meg and I went to our 7 week ultrasound. 

Everything looked great.

Meg had to go to the 8 week appointment by herself (because I started work) The picture isn't great, but she said she was able to see the baby's arms and legs. 

The doctor called later that day to say we "graduated."

Meg is now a little over 10 weeks pregnant. She still feels pretty crappy. On a more positive note, she can feel the baby jiggle and has started showing.

It's funny how different the second pregnancy is! I feel like it's going so fast! 

Oh! When we ask Avery where the baby is, she lifts up Meg's shirt, points to her belly and either kisses it or searches for gold in Meg's belly button! It's cute!

Can't wait to start taking weekly pictures for real! 


  1. Yay, so happy to read an update from you girls.

    I've been reading along for a while now and finally I am pregnant myself. I have my 6 week scan this weekend.

    Thinking about blogging myself.

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...
