Granted we have a lot going on and I don't have anyone I can tell/talk to who would be really thrilled for me and supportive of the decisions I am making (which is a main reason we haven't told anyone) but I just wish I was connecting a little better. I want to look forward to this birth, meeting this little person, and normally I am a HUGE birth junkie, but right now every thing feels a bit flat.
Maybe it will get better when I start to show ( I'm 7 weeks without any symptoms really so maybe that adds to this disconnected feeling)... I don't know...
We think green! Gentle mama to 3 amazing kiddos. Recovering from religion.
LIFEschooling. Extended NAKing. Graduated cloth diaperer.
I think having our first appointment and ultrasound this friday will help, and it's also been hard because we're waiting until around Valentine's Day to tell our family. We wanted to tell them in a cute way, so I made some Valentine cards that will double as pregnancy announcements with an ultrasound picture.
I haven't really been able to talk about my pregnancy except for with DH since no one knows yet, so it's kind of like it's not really happening.
But like you said, with my first it was ALL I could think or talk about. With this one I have a lot going on with a toddler and doing stuff around the house, so it's not the center of my universe right now
Mama to a 5.5 yr old boy and a 2.5 yr old girl. Expecting baby 3 (another girl!) late June
It's hard to describe. Ultimately I am glad that I'm pregnant.
Busy mom and loving it... dd (2/03), ds (6/05), dd (8/07), ds (12/09), ??? due 5/12
Last time I was obsessed. Calendars, books-it was always on my mind.
This time I have a 3 yo and I'm not sick. I can easily forget about it, whereas last time I was puking many many times/day. Kinda hard to forget why, YK?
My neighbor said the exact same thing about her 2nd pregnancy.
I think it's very normal. No need to worry or feel guilty.
My first pg was planned hospital birth. My second was a planned homebirth turned hospital transport after home for 3.5 days with a broken water. I used to say I wanted to get pg again - not because I wanted another baby but because I wanted a chance to have a birth at home. Now I can't even get excited about that. In fact, I'm considering going to the hospital just so I don't have to shell out the 3K in cash for the homebirth that the insurance won't cover.
I really WANT to feel connected to this baby and excited about the pg. I think it will be easier during the second trimester. They we will feel better physically and feel the baby move. Those are always exciting times!
