    Hi all,
    I'm 32wks pregnant, first time and its really close now till I meet my baby, we have all his stuff bought but I just still don't feel like I'm gonna have a baby in 8wks, I just can't envisage what it will be like lol!
    Is it just me or do any of you first timers feel the same why?

    Xx

    Still doesn't feel real to me either, keep going into the room that will be baby's nursery and just looking at all the stuff knowing it is for baby but still seems like a dream! We have all of baby's bits in that room so sometimes I kind of forget about it so to speak and then go in there and am reminded of baby's imminent arrival!!

    Sometimes it feels real but mostly it doesn't, like a strange dream!!! Aagghhh we're going to have babies! It's almost too amazing to take in I think. Before you know we'll be old hands and feeding and changing though!! xxx

    I'm on my fourth - you'd think I would be used to it - but oh no! Of course I know there will be a baby here soon but so hard to envisage him sleeping in his cot, pushing him in the pram, wearing the clothes that were hagning on the line.
    My little six year old was helping me pack the changing bag for hospital yesterday, she said ' mummy I'm so excited now, baby's going to come soon', was so sweet but I think it wont feel real til he's safetly here in our arms!

    I feel the same hun, going by what the consultant told me I'll be having my c-section at 38 weeks (due to complications with eldest DS) so only have around 7 weeks to go, but I'm feeling less like I'm having a baby now than I did at the very begining (although there are moments where it dawns on me + I :censored: myself lol) xx

    My baby is my little miracle in life and I can't bring myself to believe I am going
    To be a Mummy to him, I want to but I just can't tell myself it will really happen xxx

    I'm the same! We've got everything ready (just about) but don't feel mentally ready at all! I guess it's impossible to prepare for...!
