hey guys. little but about me. i tried to get pregnant for 5 years, did 2 rounds of IUI with fertility injections and was unsuccessfull. so i decided to have weightloss surgery to better my health and chances and save up for INVITRO while i was losing the weight. well 100lbs lost and poof i got pregnant naturally. we werent even trying. heres the problem im having. iv wanted this for so long but now that im almost due( due date july 5th) im freaking out , i dont feel any real connection with my pregnancy, i feel like i should be inlove with this baby that i havnt even met, people ask me if im excited and i say yes but in my head im saying no,maybe,i dunno .. iv wanted this for so long n now that its here i feel like im gonna be a bad mom cause im not excited. im scared he will come and i wont even have a connection.. scared i wont even love him.. is there such this a pre partum depression. or do alot of first time moms go thru this. i really need some guidence so any imput would be appriciated. thank you
i think that is common for most first time moms be apprehensive. When I was pregnant with my daughter I went back and forth between excited, terrified, and just kind of numb. The first time I held her I was in love.
Do not freak out. Everything will be fine. And you will not be a bad mother. You've tried so hard for this baby, and I believe that they will know it when they are born.
