Just wondered if is normla to feel like the whole being pregnant is not real. Positive test last week 5wks pregnant but just feel like it isn't true. Don't really have any symptoms other than very slightly sore breasts. Did a second test at the weekend just to sure and that was positive.
Not that I am wanting symptoms but just something to convince me I haven't dreamt the whole thing.
I didn't feel like it was real until we saw our babies heartbeat even tho I had loads of symptoms. I kept telling my DH that I must be imagining them. Lol. But it will start to feel real soon! And congrats!! Just enjoy it whilst u don't have the symptoms x
I'm currently 36 weeks pregnant and it still doesn't feel real some of the time. I also didn't have major symptoms other than boobs that developed a road map of blue veins - and no period and a positive test, of course. Congratulations (assuming this is what you want!) and try not to stress. I'm fully expecting to still feel like I've dreamt the whole thing after the birth, some of the time.
My first pg didn't feel real and I was certain at my 12wk scan that they wouldn't find a baby! I breezed through that pg: didn't even have a bump until I was about 26wks.
Well, my lovely 4.2yr old DD1 is very real
Like what was said upthread, it will soon feel real. It's pretty quiet for the first 12 weeks then you have your scan, you'll have regular antenatal checks, them your bump will grow, your baby will wiggle about, baby will then press on your bladder, you'll probably have constant indigestion from 35wks until delivery ... It's all absolutey wonderful Congratulations and enjoy!!
Yep I agree with the others - I'm nearly 36 weeks and if they turned round to me tomorrow and said 'there's actually not a baby in there' I'd probably say 'yeah okay...' if that makes sense. It's always just seemed a little surreal like I'm going to wake up from a dream? But that's probably because I spent the last ten years absolutely sure it would take me a long time to conceive, so when I did relatively quickly I thought 'this can't be right...'
19+2, have had 4 scans sofar, baby is kicking away, ive lots of stuff bought and it still somehow doesn't feel real. ive had 4 kids and with each i dont think it properly seemed real until labour kicked in
