New here - hi guys! 37 weeks, I just had the most intense wave of sadness at an animal cruelty post on Facebook. Don't get me wrong I'm an animal lover and generally compassionate to the horrid things that happen in this world BUT the intensity of my reaction threw me!

Is it my body getting me prepared for the mixture of emotions that will come with being a new mum?!?

What a journey this is!!

I'm sensitive anyway but even worse whilst pregnant - am also. 37 weeks.

Criticism really affects me more than usual too.

Yes, this is your life now.

Yep, and it's got worse since birth. I'm not normally sensitive, in fact my family describe me as a cold hearted bitch (in a loving way blush). But in the latter stages of pregnancy and since birth 3 weeks ago I'm a total softy, almost anything sad/ emotive sets me off!

Intense - all rather exciting and intriguing though... Thanks for the replies. Just got to learn how to do the waiting thing now - I want her here now!!
