I was waiting for my period to start so we could do our lupron cycle and then do IVF. We had been TTC for a little over a year and used Microsort for genetic reasons. We had five IUIs and even tried naturally, but it didn't work. So we were going to use microsort with frozen sperm and do ivf. Then my period kept not comming, and the other day I got a BFP.
On the one hand i am excited and happy-- we are trying be cautiously optimistic since this early anythign can happen. I am not quite six weeks yet. On the other hand I am scared. We were using Microsort for genetic reasons-- there is Autism risk. My brother and I both have Autism Spectrum disorders. And he is much more severe than I am.
What if I am pregnant with a boy and it he has developmental disabilities? Especially a severe one? It is so hard to have disabilitis... I don't know what I will say to him. I honestly didn't think I would get pregnant when I did (my husband was out of town when I thought I would be ovulating-- guess my cycle was odder than I knew!).
I am nervous. I am sure we will be ok one way or the other ( I do work with kids with developmental disabilities so I kind of know what I would be doing), but I can't help feeling a little overwhelmed and uncertain.
