Lately when I feel my baby kick I think Oh Cassie's kicking WTH? Then I remember that isn't Cassie in there it is Sadie! What the heck is wrong with me!
I imagine it is because Cassie has been on my mind a lot this past week or so because I'm at the point in this pregnancy where I lost her. And I know I call my other kids their wrong names when I am preoccupied with one of them for whatever reason.
But I feel like I'm crazy. Will I bond with this child? Do I think this is a replacement baby for Cassie? Argh....
I think you will bond just fine. I think it's just like you said, you call your other kids by their siblings names unintentionally, as do a lot of mothers (I know mine did), so this is the same thing. I am sure you will start calling Sadie by your other daughters name when she is born, especially since they both begin with S.
You should see me try to call the cat I go through everyones names, kids my DH and then I'm like whatever the heck your name is and the cat just looks at me like I'm crazy (but then she always gives me that look).
