Week 16

Things have been so chaotic that I completely forgot to take weekly photos!! 

To make up for lost time I combined week 15 (Maui) and week 16 (Baymax).

Meg had an OB appointment last night. I couldn’t go because we had Back to School Night at my work, but Meg recorded the heartbeat for me (and you!) Everything looks great. She will be 17 weeks on Monday!

We go to Disney on Wednesday!






I can’t wait to see Megan in her Disney shirt when she’s 40 weeks! She looks adorable!

Our Announcement

Many people have known about the baby since the beginning. Today we made the pregnancy Facebook official...









Weeks 11 and 12 (First OB appointment)

11 weeks...




12 weeks...



First OB appointment:


It took the nurse practitioner FOREVER to find the heartbeat, but we finally got to hear it for the first time!!! 

We go back in four weeks to see one of our favorite doctors in the practice!

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!

9 weeks 4 days

We were on vacation in the Outerbanks this week, but we remembered to take our weekly photos! I even snagged a cute picture of Meg's belly! 


9 weeks 4 days...




The baby is approximately the size of Sebastian (1.25") 

Bonus pictures...notice the wild horses behind us!!!




We have our last ultrasound with RMA on Monday. We would have graduated while away, but we begged for a last visit so we could see Dr. Castlebaum one final time! 

We have our first official OB appointment September 6!

8 weeks 3 days ultrasound and photos

I just text my mom a picture of this week's photo and she was confused because she didn't see last week's. I can't believe I forgot to post! 

This was right before we left for vacation. 8 weeks 3 days. Myles wasn't in the picture because I had already dropped him off at my parents' house.

8 weeks 3 days...








The baby is approximately the size of Chip (1")

7 weeks 4 days

After our last photo session I started thinking that the size of the toy should reflect the actual size of the baby.

While I love this chart I found on Pinterest...



I think the girls are confused about the size of the baby. I scoured the internet trying to find actual sizes of the characters and the only thing I could find was an image of their silhouettes in size order (it doesn't specifically say their size). 

That being said, I went rogue and searched through the girls' toys to map out the weeks. I plan to incorporate princesses and other Disney characters (not just Pixar). It's going to be great!!

At 7 weeks 4 days, our baby is slightly bigger than 0.5 inch. In our world, that translates to Cinderella's glass slipper!





It's amazing how something so small can make you so sick!!! 

Here is a video from today's ultrasound...



And our pictures..





We go back next Thursday to see some arm stumps (Dr. Castlebaum calls it the Teddy Graham phase)!

In other news, we are going to officially announce our pregnancy in October while in Disney World!! The girls are pumped. We are going to go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! Meg and I are excited to celebrate our 10 year anniversary at the happiest place on Earth! 

It's going to be hard to keep it a secret for 60+ more days. Meg's pants are already getting tight.

6.5 weeks

The baby is about the size of an ant. It was very difficult to find this week's Disney character, but thanks to eBay we now own Flik (from A Bug's Life)





Added bonus...I found a few pictures from when we went to Disney and met Flik in Animal Kingdom!!




Harper was too afraid to go near Flik, but she did pose with Baloo and King Louie


She was so little!!

Heartbeat

I just realized that I never blogged after our last appointment!!!

We saw the heartbeat!!! It was amazing. I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to record during the appointment, but I did it anyway...enjoy!



Baby #3 and his/her fetal pole


The proud big sisters!


Updates:
We are waiting for our special figurine to arrive to take our next weekly photograph. 

We received a voicemail from Dr. Castlebaum Friday evening congratulating us and saying that he sent a message to our OB saying "we won again." He also said he missed our family and hopes to see us for one ultrasound before we graduate...Reason 1,572,864 why we love him!!!

Meg started a new medicine..diclegis...she takes one at bedtime and it helps her morning (all day) sickness. She still has bouts of nausea, but it is much more manageable now! 

We go back to the doctors Friday, August 4!

Pregnancy Photos

I've decided to take our weekly pregnancy pictures in a different direction this time around. Instead of using food, the girls will be using Disney characters.

Week 5...

We are filled with JOY that the first ultrasound went well. The baby is the size of a sesame seed (0-4mm) 




I will post week 6 picture after our ultrasound on Thursday! I'll make sure to get a picture of Meg too...she's struggling to function lately!
