I'm currently 28 weeks & finding it difficult to believe that it's really happening! That there's a baby in there. I can't really see beyond that although we've got pretty much everything that we need but it's still really surreal.
Yup, I felt like this all the way through with my DD. She only happened after nine years and had put babies out of our heads entirely. I remember doing the test purely for the purposes of ruling it out before ringing the docs. When I saw a pink line, I put it back down, made a coffee and had to check again in case I was seeing things!
It was the most surreal experience I've ever had and didn't completely get my head around it until she came out.
Dd is 1 and I still find it hard to believe I carried her around in my tummy for 9 whole months and it was her kicking punching me etc I think pregnancy labour and the first few weeks with a new born are so surreal but enjoy it it passes by in a blink
Took just over a year to conceive and did several tests and still didn't believe it. The scans and heartbeat checks really brought it home; i burst into happy tears at my 12 weeks. And now the regular wiggling makes it feel a bit more real ;)
I'm 23 weeks now, still doesn't seem real. Even through being sick non stop and all the other crap that comes with it, I just think to myself that I have food poisoning or something haha. I don't think I'll believe it's true until I actually see the baby. Having said that, with some of my friends kids who are 10-14, I say to my friends sometimes "wow I still can't believe you're a mum sometimes!" and they always say they can't believe it either and it's strange. So I think sometimes, people just feel like that forever.
With both of my pregnancies I was genuinely shocked to see a baby on the screen it just didn't feel real, even the second time around. Then once the baby is born I was in shock again - 1. That my body grew these perfect humans and 2. That they ever fitted in my body! Totally normal to feel a bit weird OP my second is 9 weeks old and I still can't believe she's here!
