Disney Celebration

We took the girls to Disney in October to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and baby #3!

We did so many amazing things!! One of my favorite parts was breakfast at O’hana on the morning of our anniversary! We had an amazing view of Cinderella’s castle, ate delicious food, checked out the Polynesian resort and, best of all, hung out with some of our favorite characters! 

We relaxed after breakfast in preparation for our late night at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! The girls LOVED it! They went trick or treating (Disney had allergy friendly treats for Harper!), danced with characters from Monsters Inc, went on rides(Avery went on SPACE MOUNTAIN!!!!), watched the special villain show (the Sanderson sisters-from Hocus Pocus- were awesome!!!), ate popcorn and cotton candy that looked like candy corn while watching the Halloween parade. Lastly, they finally stayed up late enough to see Disney fireworks!!! 

We had several other amazing character dining experiences: Bon Voyage breakfast with Rapunzel, Flynn, Ariel, and Prince Eric and breakfast with the princesses in Epcot. We also had dinner with Mickey and friends in Animal Kingdom and at Chef Mickey!

The highlight of the girls’ trip was definitely the Bippidi Boppidi Boutique! They had mini photoshoots afterwards. It was amazing.

It was an exhausting trip, but we had a great time!

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 …

First Ultrasound

Had I known that Meg wouldn't remember her blood results moments after speaking to the doctor, I would have blogged hours ago...(beta ??; progesterone is holding strong at 15)

Today was our first ultrasound and I have to admit that, up until this point, I was excited, but still in total disbelief. I don't know how to explain it. We have had 4 positive pregnancy tests and several blood tests that confirmed it, but I guess I needed to see it in order to believe it.

Here is our first picture (I've been dying to post it!)...

If you're like my mom, you're probably thinking it looks like a watermelon seed, but the dark oval is the gestational sac (where the baby develops). You can also see the yolk sac (the small white circle in the upper left of the sac), which is the source of nutrients for the fetus.

All in all, Doc says everything looks perfect and it was exactly what she wanted to see. Our next appointment is Friday, September 2nd.

Time to celebrate and recreate …

The big reveal!!!!

It’s a...GIRL!!! Makenzie Ryan is expected 3/19/18!
