Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

Paperwork is in the mail

4 Comments

Today was spent filling out the enormous stack of paperwork that my RE’s office sent me to complete before my appointment on September 5th. Wow do they want a lot of information! When did I first notice pubic hair? Hair under my arms? I have NO idea. I obviously remember when I got my period so I just made educated guesses… hope that is ok. How did my mother’s mother’s mother die? Really? We need to go THAT far back?! I was definitely glad that I had told my mom about all this because it made filling the family history part out a little easier. Since we still haven’t told E’s family a lot of his family history is iffy. We got most of it (what I think are the important most immediate family) but not all.

There was a sense of completion when I sealed that envelope and placed it in my mailbox with that bright and shiny red flag indicating that there is a new piece of mail for my mail lady to pick up tomorrow.

I plan on calling the RE’s office tomorrow or Tuesday and asking them when I can get all of our test/results sent over so they have everything for my appointment in a couple weeks.

Overall, a productive Sunday.

  1. Wow, that is incredibly detailed! I’ve never been asked about first emergence of body hair, but I know I could not answer. Am I the only one who doesn’t know my exact age when I first got my period? I always say 12, but it could have been 11 or 13. I’m sure my mom would know, but I’ve never thought it was all that important to ask.

    • I thought it was incredibly detailed too and am not quite sure how on earth when I first noticed random body hair is relevant but who knows… I took a guess LOL. I think the only reason I remember when I got my period is because it came at quite an inopportune moment 😉

  2. That’s a lot of detail. I hope you made a copy for yourselves. I kind of remember getting my first hairs “down there” and under my arms but only because I plucked the first ones until my friend’s mom told me that 3 more would grow in its place if I pulled them out and I believed her.
