Is anyone else having a hard time believing they are actually bringing a baby home in September?

It's probably because of my previous loss, and the fact that it took so long to get a sticky baby this time around, but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I'm really having another baby. It's starting to get more real... people are asking me if I want a baby shower, we have to think about buying new furniture, and I'm already being asked who is coming over to help me out those first few weeks. I know I have to plan ahead, but ack it's scary.

I did manage to buy her two little outfits in the last week, and I talk about her with DS more now (because he asks literally everyday how big is the baby now) but beyond that, it's hard for me to get motivated. I need to go through all my old baby stuff and reorganize, research new decor for the new baby room, etc...

Maybe when I feel more regular and stronger movements it'll hit me that this is happening?

Even though I've had 3 ultrasounds so far, am growing bigger by the day, and feel movement every day, I have not done a single thing because I'm having a hard time believing that I'm actually going to bring home a baby in September. I hope this feeling resolves itself quickly because I haven't been able to do what I enjoy the most - shopping.

I hope that you are also able to wrap your brain around this sometime soon.

I am definitely having a hard time. I still don't feel much movement (thank you anterior placenta), so I have to check on her with a doppler just so I won't worry.

We don't have a room ready yet, but a bunch of baby stuff people have given us. I won't believe it until she is here probably.

Yes, I'm having a tough time believing it! I finally started to feel movement on Saturday- just little flicks and flutters, but I still only feel it every once in a while. I'm constantly worried! Can't wait for my ultrasound on Wednesday, I'm hoping if I find out the baby looks perfectly healthy (fingers crosse, praying to god) that maybe I can feel a little more confident... Just my first baby, and I've known quite a few people in the past few years who have lost children early AND late in pregnancy, so I'm terrified.

Definitely right there with you. I still can't wrap my mind around it completely - like Kelli mentioned, anterior placentas and intermittent movement is probably playing a big part in that.

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

I know what you mean. With my other girls, I dreamed, planned, prayed and constanly thought about having another baby. Since I had fertility issues, I spend alot of time daydreaming about what it would be like. This time, I had made my mind up it wasn't going to happen and that I would not have any more children, ever. So, it was a shock to me and I still have trouble realizing we're going to have another baby, especially another girl. It's like I still don't beleive it.
Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him. Psalm 127:3

I'm with you. This is my first and since I'm a bigger girl anyway, I haven't really started showing. Add that to the fact that I'm not really feeling a whole lot of movement. So the only times I really feel pregnant are when I'm a) throwing up, b) at the doctor listening to the heartbeat, or c) crying because somebody looked at me funny.
Baby #2 due November 28th!

Yes, me!
I still cannot believe I am pregnant. Even with all the ultrasounds...
Its getting more real for me though, today I was asked by my neighbor if I was expecting... this is the first time I have been asked. I am also feeling her a lot now... she actually kept me up almost all night last night from constantly kicking me....

I still cant picture me having another baby though! It's just so surreal. We have been trying for almost a year (including a miscarriage) before we became pregnant with this little one!

I'm in complete disbelief that I'm actually going to be bringing a baby home. With my last pregnancy I was super excited, planning like crazy, had everything ready... carseat, crib, stroller, clothes, **** near everything. Then I had the anatomy scan and BAM game over.

So this time around I have done diddly squat in preparation. People ask if I'm excited and I'm just eh yeah I guess... but won't buy anything, won't really plan. I look on Pinterest and such but not really thinking that it's MY baby I'm planning for. Just more of less, that's cute... Jake wants to start working on the crib and he's making measurements and whatnot. I just look at him like he's crazy. Why build a crib? Don't you know this is all just an evil trick? But hey, I'm trying to actually think positive.

My anatomy scan is this Friday. I'm bracing for the worst, but hoping for the best. Either way I'll be in tears for the rest of the day. I honestly can't even picture going in and having them tell me all is well. It just doesn't seem like my life.

Excuse my typos, there is either a baby on my boob or sleeping in my arms

yes totally, so much so that we only told Savannah & family just over a week ago and only went public on FB yesterday. I hate feeling negative about it though, but i'm not yet in a mental place where I can start buying anything yet...hopefully after our 22 week anatomy scan I'll be able to relax a little more.

Ugh, I am hoping to bring home Cade in September. I am not feeling much movement and I am terrified. But I feel so bad I didn't buy anything for Seth that I have already bough Cade a few things, like a second hand Christening gown, and cream colored Robeezs boots. I also want to buy him a bank that matches the other three kiddos banks.
