Do you ever find yourself looking at your baby and thinking "that's not my baby"

I love my DD. I don't have PPD. I just sometimes look at her and think "wow... I'm a mom.. thats my baby... It can't be... it's so surreal'! Is it just me?

  • I think this is normal for your first. Although, I have found myself doing it with my 4th...we decided we were done at 3 and I had a tubal, then had it reversed so our 4th is a blessing and its kind of surreal too!
