Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

Sigh of relief


Here is our little miracle… being a little over-achiever and measuring 4 days ahead of schedule. I am now 7w4d with a new EDD of August 29th, 2014. It was amazing, to say the least and I won’t lie. I totally cried when I saw that heart beating. That turned into silent sobs when they turned the audio on and I got to hear it. I looked over at E and he had the biggest smile on his face. It’s amazing how fast it is – measuring at 146bpm 🙂

There was our baby. Right there. All the while the Dr. is saying how good everything looks. It’s hard to wrap my mind around. I have this beautiful little growing human in my body. It didn’t feel real up until now. 


After the ultrasound was over E and I sat there in shock for a moment and then burst into giggles and hugged one another. We past this second huge step and things look “perfect”. We went to Dr. M’s office and he gave us an overview of what we just saw, things to consider and told us that he sees no reason to continue treating me and is release me back to my OB. 

We are so happy it’s hard to focus on anything. I am so glad we both took the whole day off 🙂 Now, to breath a sigh of relief! Only a few more weeks till another glimpse of our miracle.
