Im just not connecting

I'm not sure if its because I'm getting divorced because my husband cheated on me or if something is wrong with me but I'm 11 weeks pregnant and just not connecting this time. I've accepted the pregnancy but i dont feel that im overly excited about it. Maybe its because I concieved just to make my husband happy. I'm so lost.

  • i think you are going thru a bunch of emotions right now..that sounds like a lot of stress for a early pregnant mamma to me..maybe you are not connecting bc the baby is your dh's and you are feeling a little resentment bc he cheated? Im not sure but you def need a (HUG)..Im sorry and hope things work out for you

  • i was going through a divorce when pregnant with my youngest & it's probably depression, shock... and a lot of other emotions I can't think of. u are probably feeling every emotion possible right now.

  • I couldn't imagine going through what you're going through right now. I have a really healthy relationship with my husband, and my pregnancy didn't actually like...HIT me until I was probably 6 months and started showing. I was, I guess, happy about the pregnancy, but I didn't really feel like I was pregnant...I don't know how to explain it...but thats besides the point

    Maybe because you're going through all of this...bullshit with your husband, you just really can't believe that its happening. Babies are joyful, no matter how they were conceived. I think you'll start to feel something when you get farther along.
