I hope none of you think I'm being really horrible I just need some advice. I'm having trouble bonding with my baby. Im 13 weeks, and no doubt this is because the pregnancy was un-expected and has caused many problems, not that this is the baby's fault obviously. I've had a scan and heard the heartbeat, and I do feel excited, but I feel like something's missing. I'm not experiencing this over-whelming love I've heard you're meant to. I just see it as a baby, not mine, just a baby. I feel like I would if it was someone else's. Like it's cute and amazing, but just not really mine. I also feel like by now I should have bonded, especially after seeing and hearing it. I'm really scared that the circumstances are going to stop me loving my baby. I don't dis-like the baby, I do feel protective of it, the best way I can describe it is that I feel it's someone else's. And I can't see this changing even when it's born. Has anyone else ever felt like this or can anyone help?
