  • It could be that she likes you. I have a pregnant friend that holds my LO and she freaks out--I think we may have a case of stranger anxiety though. Just enjoy it.

  • well it really upsets my sister and makes her feel like a bad mom and also when she first came home from the hospitle i was the only one who could get her to go back to sleep

  • I dont think its because you are pregnant. I think you might be very calm. thats what babies fell no matter how old they are...

    there was a day when i was really nervous about something and my daughter wouldnt stop to whine. My mom, who is always calm and relaxed (unless she just came from work lol) took her on her arm and immediately she would stop crying.

    You are pregnant and probably very happy, a baby can feel that if you are happy/calm/satisfied ect. if they dont feel that, they you can rock them for hours and it wont help at all.

  • I agree with the PP that said it could be because you're calmer when the baby is freaking out. I know that my daughter would get frustrated with me while I was frustrated with her and we would just build on each other. A crying baby can get you frustrated...a baby being held by a frustrated person is going to recognize it as not being "right" and not feel comforted. When someone outside the situation comes in, it makes it better for both the baby and the mom.
