Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

In awe

9 Comments

12 weeks 4 days. 192 days to go.

I couldn’t update yesterday because we were too busy sharing the news with family and friends that I am pregnant. It was such a surreal act. Letting people know what we have kept a secret for what feels like an eternity. The more people I talked to, the more I opened up to about our infertility struggles. It was amazingly, weirdly, nice. 

So the NT scan was awesome. Baby was being uncooperative for the technician but I was perfectly ok with that. E and I got to watch our little baby wiggle, stretch, kick, hit and arch for over 20 minutes while they were trying to get a good picture. Pure heaven. It’s amazing that something so tiny looks so much like a baby already and is moving SO much. We even saw a tiny little baby hand. Truly unbelievable. His/her heartbeat was good at 162bpm and the NT scan was good, everything was within normal range. 

We met with the doctor who poked my belly, asked how I was doing and was happy that I am down 2lbs from my 9week appointment. After that, went to the lab for some bloodwork and scheduled my next appointment 4 weeks from now.

I can’t believe we are telling people. It’s so surreal!

  1. Yay! This is just so amazing! Can’t wait to watch that belly bump get bigger and bigger 🙂

  2. Isn’t it amazing? It’s so unbelievable to tell people that you’re pregnant. And to see that tiny body moving inside you is mind blowing. I’m so happy that you got to feel and experience it. And I’m so glad that you were able to open up about your IF struggles. Every little bit of raising awareness helps the next lady.

  3. Oh this is so sweet. I so get that joy of watching the wriggle. It’s so surreal, so lovely. We are one day apart can you believe it?! I’m so glad all is going well and that you’ve been brave enough to tell people. We can’t even fathom it yet for some reason, too scary still I think. Too real maybe? So excited for you hun xxx

  4. I love this! How exciting! Enjoy every minute!

  5. Awesome! Can’t imagine what it would feel like to share with people. It must have been so nice to see the baby move around, even though you couldn’t get a good picture. It means he/she is active, doing well! 🙂
