Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

I’ll take uneventful appointments any day!

1 Comment

16 weeks 5 days. 163 days to go.

I had my 16 week appointment today and it was great but really uneventful. My biggest concern was that they wouldn’t be able to pick up the heartbeat on the dopplar like last time but they heard the HB right away which was a major relief to me, I was able to calm down immensely. Steady in the 140’s 😀 We went over some of issues (some headaches, back pain and waking up on my back) and then she said how proud she was of my weight and blood pressure. I am down 2lbs from when I found out I was pregnant and at almost 17 weeks she said she is really happy with that. My BP is still the lowest it has ever been, which is awesome. This was the doctor that originally wouldn’t even treat me for infertility because of my original weight and I had to ask for the referral to the RE. I lost 35lbs between then and going to the RE so it feels good that she is acknowledging that I am still working hard to maintain the healthy lifestyle and keep me and baby blob as happy and healthy as can be. 

The best news though? She said I can come in 2 weeks for the anatomy scan!!! So April 3rd at 1:30 is the day!!! I am so excited I can barely stand it.

I also think I am starting to feel movement. I am still not 100% sure so I am not getting too excited but I think it’s happening. I get giddy every time I feel it just hoping that it’s little blob moving around.
