I think it's your PPD talking. I went through the same thing after 43 hrs of unsuccessful labor and to this day can't remember her measurements or how I felt except that I was worried I wasn't going to get a chance to meet my little girl. I watched the birthing shows and felt like a failure. I also had to force myself to connect with dd because I caught myself looking at her but not connecting with her on one or two occasions. What really helped me through that stage was attachment parenting. It really helped me bond. I still feel my body failed me so this time around I'm opting for a c section right off the bat so I can be aware of the baby's birth even if it's not a natural birth.
You'll feel better little by little and your bond will grow stronger, you just need some time to heal from the trauma of an emergency c section.
