Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

“He looks perfect”


22 weeks 6 days. 120 days to go.

I don’t think I will ever get use to hearing those words. “He looks perfect.” Every appointment I go in nervous as can be only to hear such reassurances as;

“Your blood pressure is still low, you’re doing awesome with your weight and you are measuring right on track.”

“Your baby looks perfect. He is measuring right on track and things good great.”

I know that all of that can change at the drop of a hat but if I am lucky to continue to hear such reports it will be a gift from God. Today was part two of our anatomy scan and baby boy was pretty cooperative today and we got beautiful views of his heart, diaphragm and upper lip. He is measuring right on track and is weighing in at 1.4lbs!! My stats are doing pretty great too… BP was 110/68 and I lost a pound since my last appointment. The doctor is overall very pleased with how I am doing and I am just ecstatic that things are going so well.

I am still barely sleeping and my back has really started to bother me but nothing I can really do about those things. I started doing some pregnancy safe stretches for my back/hips and I think it may be helping a little. I also bit the bullet and started taking some allergy medication because I am having some serious sneezing issues.

They turned on the 4D imaging while we were getting our ultrasound for the first time and while it isn’t a great picture it was still amazing to see. I am so in love ❤
