Fingers Crossed

We dropped the girls off at school this morning. On the way to our appointment we stopped at a bagel place. It was really good!


We were the only people in the waiting room at RMA. Meg read her book and I watched Prison Break. They called us back shortly after 8:45. 


Our donor provided us with 70 million sperm with 40% motility (Avery had 60 million 40%, Harper had 100 million 30% motility) The Doctor came in, confirmed the donor's number and Meg's Birthday and then quickly reviewed Meg's paperwork.

He said that there is no doubt that she is ovulating (her surge was 95 yesterday). He also said that this is going to be a perfect cycle for us. Fingers crossed he is right!

Today we used our last vial from donor 12360. It's an odd feeling. I'm a firm believer in "everything happens for a reason." While I wish last month worked it would make total sense for this to close out our TTC process.

We go back in for a pregnancy test on July 10th. Until then we will focus on our upcoming trip to the beach! 

Today we will put our feet up, relax, and watch movies while the girls are at school!

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...
