Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

Oh the gas and other things


20 weeks 4 days. 136 days to go.

I have said all along that I have been one of the “lucky” ones with this whole pregnancy thing. Almost zero symptoms. I still feel like myself for 95% of the time, which is awesome. I have had little things that are pretty easy to deal with; low back pain, serious trouble sleeping, a trigger point in my shoulder that occasionally feels as if a searing hot spear is being shoved through it, hunger, constant peeing and lingering constipation. Last night however I had some of the worst gas pains in my life. They were horrible! I felt like my insides were trying to claw out of my stomach. I have no idea what brought it on but it wasn’t pretty… after about 10 minutes of this horrible pain the gas started making its way out and I slowly started to get some relief. Now I seem to be nervous to eat anything though for fear that it will bring the gas back! It’s a cruel, cruel world.

In other news – I got some AMAZING news last night that one of my good friends and fellow infertility blogger got her BFP last night. I am so incredibly happy for her it’s not even funny! I can’t wait till she is able to update her blog in the next couple days. It’s just so exciting. There have been so many BFP’s around here lately. It is so encouraging and gives me so much hope for everyone struggling with IF that they will all be blessed with those two beautiful lines. 

Also… my best friend told me yesterday that she was sending out my shower invites!! I can’t believe it will be in 3.5 weeks! That’s so crazy. I finally finished our registry (at least I think I did…) and we have started getting some gifts already. I think the best one we have received so far was something we hadn’t registered for. It’s called the Snuza and with my anxiety over everything, SIDS has been a big concern of mine so this was such an amazing gift. I didn’t even know this thing existed! I thought the only thing on the market was the breathing “pads” that the baby lays on. I am so grateful for this!!!

Not much else going on around here… I hope everyone is doing well and baby dust to all!!

  1. This is such an amazing update! I love to hear that everything is going well. You deserve this! Hugs 🙂

      • I’m so glad that we have both been given babies. This has been such a long road. Even now, it barely feels real to me. (Midnight pumping sessions definitely are helping to bring home the reality though. LOL)

      • Oh I am sure but I bet you are loving every minute of it. Abby is the most beautiful baby girl and she is so lucky to have you as her mom. I can’t wait to hold our baby boy… it seems so unreal that that is even a possibility. So crazy to think about after everything we went through to get to this point!
