Finding out that you’re going to have a baby is an exciting feeling especially in case you’ve been trying so hard and for so long. You have a wide selection of emotions which satisfies you with everything from joy to anxiety. These are all natural emotions because your hormones will have a field day with your body over the next nine months.
Each month you will discover something new and experience a new milestone. The biggest milestone at first is when you feel your baby move for the first time. At first it will feel like small flutters or bubbles in your belly. Then you will feel solid movements in the form of lumps against the wall of your uterus. The baby is moving their arms and legs.
You’ll find out whether you’re having a boy or a girl. This will fill you with excitement and you will have so many ideas about what the baby room will look like, exactly what the title will be, and what kind of person they will grow up to be. Life is exciting and new. You and your spouse are excited about the coming of the baby.
The newborn is handed to you. You’re not sure what to feel. Many women do feel love at first sight and are overjoyed with seeing their little one. But there are many other women who don’t get this feeling at first sight and that is okay. They see their little one for the first time and, for some odd reason, they are underwhelmed. After the long wait and the fertility treatments, you thought you’d feel differently. After the baby is dressed and cleaned, the nurses bring them to you. You might feel a wild rush of emotions and you only want to cuddle and hold this little human that came from you. If you do not feel this, don’t worry about it. Not every woman feels that love at first sight emotion. You know there’s a connection but it’s not of undying love.
Over the next few days, the love will grow. And if you are breastfeeding, this emotion will grow stronger due to the amount hormones flowing through your body. An unconditional love for your little one will grow. It’ll be so strong that nothing can break it.
