Autistic and Pregnant - Advice needed

Hi,

wondering if anyone has any experience of being on the spectrum and pregnant?

my sensory issues have gone absolutely crazy. I’m finding it very difficult to mask and my midwives are being so unhelpful, it’s actually spoiling my pregnancy 

any experiences/advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

also... how was the birth for anyone? With peoples pain thresholds? I know mine is different to NTs. Can anyone relate?

  • Hi, I have ASD and I also have 3 children.

    I was an absolute hormonal nightmare when I was pregnant and very stroppy! How are you finding the mood swings?

    What specific sensory issues are you struggling more with at the moment?

    I’m a complete wimp with pain so I didn’t like the giving birth part but luckily all 3 of mine were in a hurry to get out so it was over and done with quite quickly!
