Anyone else feel this way?

I was SO attached with my first pregnancy. This time, not so much. I don't even feel or acknowledge I'm pregnant until my big belly gets in the way.

Yes! This was me exactly.
From the positive test with DD I was bonded with her. With DS, nothing. I was worried, and I made a similar post. This is normal! So many moms are like this with different pregnancies. Some with the first, second, third or whatever! It's all normal and when baby is here you will love him or her as much as your first!

I honestly find it quite weird considering I was young, only 18, with my first pregnancy. I'm older now, but I just don't feel it. :/

No. I found I got more attached with each pregnancy.

Our first pregnancy wasn't planned.. so I didn't feel a connection until shortly after my second trimester. 

Our second and third pregnancies were planned and I already experienced the amazing joy of a new baby so I was attached from conception on.

I was 21 with DD, 26 with DS. Both planned.
The circumstances don't really matter. It is what it is. But it's normal for sure.

With my son I was entirely unattached to the pregnancy. Hearing the heartbeat was cool and the ultrasounds were neat but... Eh.
I was told I needed to learn to love my pregnancy or I'd end up resenting my child, which turned out to be entirely untrue. He's my world.

I was the same way. Attached with my first and not as much with my second. It changed as soon as I gave birth.

I'm just afraid I won't love her.
