Worried about autism in 9 month old girl

For the last 2-3 weeks it has been getting progressively worse. She is rocking for 10-15 sec at a time 6-7 times a day. Busy or not, music going or it's quiet, tired or not. She also flaps her hand quite often. Usually she loks excited about something at times I'm not sure what. She has been a month ahead on all her developmental milestones from what I've seen online. She smiles and very friendly. Loves to be picked up by anyone. Although the only time she doesn't make eye contact is when you're holding her. Every other time she is fine. I'm just worried and need to talk to someone. My mom exaggerates everything and my husband ignores me and says I'm just worrying to much but something doesn't seem right. I have an appointment with her pediatrician at the end of the month but the wait is killing me. Any comments would so incredibly grateful.

I'm really sorry you're going through this stress. I know how stressful it can be. I get stress over everything even a runny noes.

All I can say is trust your gut... a mom's intuition is never wrong!
