I'm 30 weeks pregnant and getting more and more anxious about having the baby as it gets closer. I'm an anxious person and now with the modd swings it's getting terrible. I can't say I've enjoyed my pregnancy as it seems other mothers do. In fact if I really didn't want just one child, I probably wouldn't do it again. Don't get me wrong, I know I love her, I just don't like this feelings. Everyone calls it so magical and I just don't feel like that and then on top of that, those feeling make me feel like a terrible person. And with all this coming to the end, I'm getting so worried that I'm going to be emotionally unattached to her when she comes. I don't know how to shake all this and I just want it to be over with. I put on a happy face for my family and they all say I'm glowing and whatever, but I don't feel it. Has anyone else felt like this? I feel so alone, and I don't want my baby girl to feel like that.

Trust me, all kinds of things go through your head - the good, the bad, the indifferent, the ugly, the funny. This is a whole, new, uncertain experience. Wait until the baby comes. You're going to be awash in such a great love you never knew existed in the depths of your human soul. You don't need to shake anything; embrace the change, embrace the love, embrace the glow and go for a lot of short walks in beautiful places both in your head and outside.
