  • Why wouldn't it be? Any thing you feel is fine it is just what your going through right now. What if I said it wasn't okay? HOw would that be helpful?

  • Do you feel like you should be more excited? Is that what you are asking? For me it took until I really saw my first child to be totally excited. I had always wanted to be a mom but when we got pregnant it was almost too real to be totally ecstatic, if that makes sense. When I actually saw my little boy, there was too much emotion and excitement to even try to explain. Then with babies #2 and #3 I was definitely more into the pregnancy and anxious for the baby to come.

  • Sure, it is. There's a bit of unreality to it all in the beginning.

  • I'm 21 weeks pregnant with my first and I feel the way you do. Every time I go to the doctor they're like "Aren't you excited?" It's hard telling them I'm just ok with it. I think it's normal, though. And I feel the way I do for a lot of personal reasons. I'm sure you do, too. I think when we get closer to meeting our little mini mes we will be more excited.
