Feeling like nothing will really happen?

Hi everyone. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I felt like I really wasn't. Like my pregnancy would go on forever and not end in having a baby, regardless of seeing her on the ultrasound screen, feeling her kick, etc. When she was actually born, it was such a shock for some reason..and I had postpartum depression for the first few months of her life. When she was a newborn I kept saying to myself that she would stay like this forever and wouldn't grow up. I'm not sure why...is all of this normal for some moms?

Re: Feeling like nothing will really happen?

I know I'm late in this reply but I'll reply anyways. I am always like that. When my first was just born I couldn't see her growing up but she's now 6 years old. I couldn't see her going to school but she obviously does go to school. I couldn't even see myself having kids and I have 4. Even being pregnant I couldn't see myself having the baby. Like yea I knew the baby was going to be born but I couldn't imagine it really being born. It's normal I think..at least I hope!! lol

Re: Feeling like nothing will really happen?

Hi..it sounds like fear to me..fear of the unknown. Fear to care for her and be the best mom you can be. I am sure you are a great mother but feel a bit nervous or overwhelmed? Try not to think about it so much. Be in the moment with your child..enjoy her. Time moves on rather quickly.
