Hey love, I'm really sorry you're feeling like this. I would most definitely look at some options of people you can talk to about these feelings, start by telling your midwife. She might be able to suggest a counsellor or someone that specialises in this. Post natal depression isn't something you want so it's better to start taking steps about it now, before you're overwelmed with caring for a newborn as well.
The hormones really don't help, and even though I planned my pregnancy there are still days where I feel like I've made a mistake and wonder how on earth it's all going to work. We doubt ourselves and I don't think there would be a pregnant woman on EARTH who wouldn't have feelings like this. No matter how 'prepared' you think you might be you can never truly understand what it will be like until you're living it. I really wish you the best and please PM me if you want to vent to someone, I'll listen without judging I promise!
I feel like that some days. I don't really feel like i'm bonded with my LO atm. I think i'm still in denial that i'm about to have a baby!
Like all the other girls have suggested, talk to a midwife or doctor. Depression is pretty common in pregnancy and it might help to talk about everything.
It is normal to have all these worries.
i know exactly how you feel. But atleast you have some support right? All I can say is just do the best you can.. that's pretty much what we all have to do I guess. People judge me often and give me stupid comments to get an abortion. But they don't matter just be the best mom you can be for your little one and stay positive and you can do it. I know it's really scary and it's gonna be hard but I'm sure once you have your little one he/she's the only thing that will matter and everything will be worth it! Having a baby is a precious gift don't forget that =) good luck. if you ever need to talk message me x
Iv had days like this recently and im already a mummy to one little girl. I ended up with pre natal depression in the final weeks with my daughters pregnancy so I do suggest talking to someone about how you feel. but I can assure you you wont feel this way when you meet your baby im feeling right now like I wont be able to be a good enough mummy to raise two babies but it really helps me to keep thinking about how I felt during ky last pregnancy and how my perspective totally changed after she was born. Its alot to take in and the fear of the unknown can be very overwhelming. It will get easier to cope with and things will be clearer once baby is here. This will all just be a memory youll look back on and think how much you underestimated your ability to be a wonderful mummy xx
i felt the same way , and i was terrified of my daughter for a couple days .. i wasnt sure i could give her everything she needed i was even scared i'd be suffering PPD . but now shes almost 3 weeks and i wake up at 3 am to feed her and i love every second of it .. .dont worry as soon as you have your little one , you'll fall in love ... PM me if you wanna talk hun
