First Ultrasound

This morning we had our first ultrasound for baby 3...we saw the gestational sac and yolk sac. The doctor says everything looks perfect! 





The doctor just called with Meg's bloodwork. Her hcg is up to 20,201 and her progesterone is at 20. We go in for our next ultrasound next Thursday. We will hopefully get to see the heartbeat (fingers crossed!)

Megan is feeling pretty sick these days. It's different than with the girls. She has an overwhelming feeling of nausea and terrible acid reflux. 

We are heading to the beach tomorrow. Should be a fun weekend!

  1. Such great news! My wife had much worse nausea with pregnancy #2 and as you know, it was a boy! Maybe that's the case here as well! Ekkkkk! :)

  2. With the girls she would throw up every morning. This time around she has nausea off and on ALL day. The acid reflux is really bad too!

    We aren't going to find out the sex this time. It's going to be painfully difficult. I hate surprises! I was convinced that it would definitely be a girl (the donor has 7 girls!) but now I don't know!!!

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...
