Soo… What’d he say?!?!
Soo… What’d he say?!?!
He’s excited, as I knew he would be. But he’s keeping pretty calm. I believe the first thing he said was “Cool!” LOL. We’ve already told both sets of parents at his insistence, even though I think it’s way early to be telling people.
Congratulations on your BFP!
People react differently and your reaction is understandable.
I had strange feelings when I got my BFP a few years ago, but after visiting my midwife and did my first checkup it changed alot for me, I became super excited.
You will get there, and I am sending you happy thoughts along the way!
My oldest is 3 now and it still doesn’t feel completely real that I created a human being inside my body and now I am completely responsible for her and sometimes even now I get freaked out by the thought of it, being a parent is crazy and at times it can be incredibly overwhelming. Don’t beat yourself up over not feeling super excited.
iheartnerds i cmpletly understand abut your original post. I have many fleeting feelings all the time.. they do range from not being excited (im not sayingim not greatful), because i suddenly get the feeling that im going to be responsible for someone else. I am scared shitless! I often think ‘what have i done’, and its hard to be excited when your so scared! Yes we planned this, but like you i really didnt expect it to happen so quickly. I feel as if i have heaps of hormones running through me and that my feelings change all the time. I do get excited at times as well, and my heart does often swell.
I think the hardest part is coming to terms with the fact that i am an adult and i can do this, (but i have always thought i was to young yet.. im not young…)
anyways i can cry at the drop of a hat.. and go from normal to raging psycho in 5 seconds flat.. You are normal. and dont ever feel like you cant share your feelings. There are plenty of us going through similar if not the same issues!
Looking back, I think my initital reaction was a tad irrational. Sometimes we have strange thoughts when we’re in shock and the alcohol and May birthday, while silly, were the first things I focused on. Just a few days later, I don’t know why those things ever seemed to matter.
I can feel the maternal instincts kicking in already and I’m (cautiously) starting to get attached to the idea of my little peanut. I’m afraid to get too excited during the first trimester but my initial freak out is done and I’m looking forward to being a mommy! Thanks again or all the replies.
Congrats!! Like everyone else I think the exitment will come 🙂
Oh and I know you said your meh about having the due date near your birthday, some people might not like it, but I myself had a birthday in the same month as both of my parents. My mom’s was the 8th, mine the 14th, and dad’s was the 28th. I know it might sound crappy but honestly I loved it! I thought how unusual and rare it is to have all b-days in one month.
Have a happy and healthy 9 months!!!
