Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

“Graduation Day”


11 weeks 1 day – 202 Days to go

Today was our 11 week ultrasound. They never get less nerve wracking… I always walk in with a stomach full of butterflies and mind mixed with hope and doubt. Luckily I got to leave today feeling good. Today is a good day.

We had to go to the main RE’s office due to the holiday and it was crowded as usual. It still amazes me just how many people have trouble having children, it is always packed. They took us back a little late but the ultrasound went well. I had a nice tech and she spent plenty of time looking around and showing us the baby. We saw him/her move, jump, and flip. Baby measured exactly 11w1d with a heartbeat of 173bpm.

After the ultrasound we simply discussed the fact that I am done with the RE and will now be under the care of my OB only. What a scary thought… to be treated like a “normal” pregnant person. My first OB appointment is next Thursday which will include the NT scan but after that I won’t get another ultrasound until the anatomy scan. That’s going to be a hard long wait!

I know things could still go downhill and because of that we take each week as a blessing but today was a good day. It is E’s birthday and if today didn’t go well, it would have tarnished his birthday forever. Luckily that didn’t happen and we have just one more thing to celebrate.

  1. Wonderful news! I feel like this is going really fast! I’m sure it’s dragging by for you but I can’t believe you are already almost 12 weeks!!
