I'm sorry shauni27. It's never easy to hear something is wrong. We did an early intervention a few weeks ago and it was incredibly helpful. DS didn't qualify for services, but it was really helpful to get some techniques to help us (for us our issue is delayed speech). Calling to make the appointment was the hardest part. And maybe they will tell you everything is fine!

Now that I have had time to stew on it all day I really am happy. I am of course sad to hear something could be wrong, but I am really looking forward to getting some tools to help us help him! Thank you for sharing your experience.

Good to hear you’re feeling better, shauni27. Another anecdotal to hopefully help you, too: C also received Early Intervention services (for gross motor delays) and it was such a positive experience. Free, in-home physical therapy! After 6 months of it, he’s all caught up and you’d never tell he had ever been delayed. I hope your experience is equally positive, GL!
Big hugs shauni27 i dont work with kids that young but one of my specialty areas is behavioral and emotional support for children (age 3 through 18) so if you ever want to PM me id be happy to give you any strategies i have. I think getting him evaluated is a good idea. Early intervention makes a huge difference in the lives of so many kids. Its so much easier to change behaviors early on. If you want any info on that process as well id be happy to walk you through it, though ut does vary by state.
Thank you guys for being so supportive and understanding and not just telling me that I am being overdramatic or crazy. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you all--from treatments during IF to support during pregnancy to help now that I have an actual child--you guys are so incredibly important to me.
Hearing your experiences with EI has really helped and encouraged me, so thank you.
P isn’t in daycare, so it took 18 months, but he now has his first bug ever. He woke up at 415 puking and threw up every 20-30 minutes until 730. I’m so sad for him. It’s so hard to watch him sick. Now I’m just praying J and I don’t catch it. I really should nap while he’s finally asleep in his crib but I can’t wind myself down.

Ooof--I'm sorry knx9211. That sounds terrible. DS just got sent home from daycare with a 100.2 fever. LOL I can't decide if we should postpone our plans to go to my parents or keep them and go up tonight.
I just fell asleep at my desk. Like...I woke up because I was snoring so loud. I do feel refreshed though.

E pointed to her diaper tonight, so I asked if she wanted to sit on the potty. She indicated that she did, so I took her diaper off and she actually peed in the potty. WHAT? I'm not sure what to think about this.
