Happy New Year!

I know it’s been a couple of months since my last blog post and I have a lot of updating to do!

Firstly, for those of you who don’t know me personally, my husband and I are expecting our first baby which is due on the 18th of May next year. We found out I was pregnant very early on but had it confirmed by an ultrasound scan on the 3rd of November. We had our Foetal Anatomy scan yesterday and all is looking well. I have to say that, although I cannot wait for us to start our journey as parents, pregnancy has elevated my anxiety levels hugely. I never knew it was possible to be as anxious as I have been throughout the whole process. I have read, though, that it is common in a lot of first time mothers to have such feelings, even those who aren’t on the spectrum. I know that parenthood on the spectrum can bring all sorts of challenges but I am looking forward to taking them on and proving everyone who believes that we can’t be good parents wrong. My blog posts will certainly take on a different tone once I’m writing about parenting! In the meantime, if anybody can offer any advice on parenting with Aspergers, I would love to hear it.

Directly related to our growing family size, we are also in the process of buying our first home together. 2016 has not been a quiet year for us by any means but, overall, it’s been fantastic. As 2017 awaits us, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone all the best for their lives in the New Year and also to thank my followers and readers for their continued support over the last 3 years even though my blogging is nowhere near as frequent as it used to be. 2017 will bring new challenges and we will finally get to meet our baby, a unique individual with so much love to give! Personally, I can’t wait!

    I found your blog looking for information re: Asperger’s and self-esteem, as my 9-year-old son with Asperger’s is struggling greatly with being his own worst critic right now. I found your blog post on the subject (back in 2013) insightful. Congratulations on expecting your first child! I hope you are having a happy and healthy pregnancy.
