I never thought I'd be like this but these past several weeks I've become rather possessive and I'm not sure I'm going to want visitors coming too soon since they will surely want to hold the baby. Honestly, I think I might not like it if DH tries to hold the baby! (Guess I'll have to get used to that.) She's with me all the time now - well, withIN me, really - and I guess I want to be greedy and keep her to myself. Well, I think this way now - who knows how I'll feel postpartum.
I know what you mean! I get like that. Right away I'm perfectly fine with DH taking the baby and letting me shower and so on, but when I'm ready to sit down to nurse or go to bed, the baby is all mine. When people want to visit, I have a really hard time being further than arms reach, and I find myself asking for the baby back all the time. And if someone walks away, while holding the baby, I get these panicky feelings inside LOL
