I've thought I was ready for the baby to come, but I'm realizing I'm just NOT! Lol. The house is ready, I'm physically ready for her to be born because I'm soooo over being pregnant, but mentally... Mentally I'm just nervous and its still soo surreal that IM having a baby! No matter how big I've gotten, how much baby stuff is at my house(I'm used to seeing baby stuff since I work at a day care and teacher 1.5 yr olds and used to work in the infant room), so seeing baby stuff doesn't have much affect on me.. I just can't seem to feel like its all real! That IM actually going to give birth to a baby we tried so long for and ultimately went thru IVF for. Its just so surreal. Idk. I'm so excited, but the reality of it all I feel like can not set in until she's actually here, born, and at our house. Idk. So hard to explain..
I feel like this sometimes! We also tried a while before getting pregnant so I know where you're coming from. I'm sure everything will REALLY sink in as soon as our babies are in our arms I'm sure you'll be a good mum!
Girl this is my 3rd child I dont think you can EVER be fully mentally prepared..I wasn't for any of my kids..no matter how clean the house was..how organized their rooms were...it's just not REAL until the child is here ..but trust me the first night your up with them all night you will realize how real it is lol.
We have a child, and tried over two years before MA to get this little boy, and I'm less ready to meet him now than I was six months ago. I am terrified of how much this will change everything, even if I know it's a good change. I only have three days to prepare, so I guess I better start getting used to it!!
I'm not prepared at all. I spend more time than I like to admit wondering what is going to happen once my LO gets here. What if he is difficult, or too easy, or allergic to pets, or has health problems? I don't think you can ever be prepared. It is too easy to psych yourself out.
I feel that way too. With my first, I always thought something bad was going to happen because I just could not picture bringing her home. Then once they're here, you won't even believe you had a life they weren't part of.
I feel the same way! I often feel like I'm in denial. DH and I never thought we wanted to have children and then things just changed once we were finally married. Now it seems so surreal that we will be bringing home a little one that has a part of both of us.
