Finding out that you’re going to have a baby is an exciting feeling especially in case you’ve been trying so hard and for so long. You have a wide selection of emotions which fills you with everything from joy to stress. These are all natural emotions because your hormones are going to have a field day with your body over the next nine months.
You will feel the baby grow inside you. Each month you will discover something new and encounter a new landmark. The biggest milestone in the beginning is when you feel your baby move for the first time. At first it will feel just like small flutters or bubbles in your belly. Then you’ll feel solid movements in the form of bumps against the wall of your uterus. The baby is moving his or her arms and legs.
You’ll find out whether you are having a boy or a girl. This will fill you with enthusiasm and you’ll have so many ideas as to what the infant room will look like, what the title is going to be, and what kind of person they’ll grow up to be. Life is exciting and new. You and your spouse are excited about the arrival of the baby.
The newborn is given to you. Crying with all their might, the doctor hands him or her to you for a quick peak before they clean them up. You’re not sure what to feel. But there are many other women who do not get this feeling at first sight and that’s okay. They see their little one for the first time and, for some strange reason, they are underwhelmed. After the long wait and the fertility treatments, you thought you’d feel differently. After the baby is dressed and cleaned, the nurses bring him or her to you. You might feel a wild rush of emotions and you only want to cuddle and hold this tiny human that came from you. If you don’t feel this, do not be worried about it. Not every woman feels that love at first sight emotion. You know there’s a connection but it’s not of undying love.
During the next few days, the love will grow. And if you’re breastfeeding, this emotion will grow stronger due to the amount hormones flowing through your body.
