I'm getting a bit worried about how well I've bonded with my baby, I do love him but I feel like something just isn't connecting the way it should. I'm 33 weeks now and was getting swept up in the excitement of it all, buying the cot and clothes etc... But now the reality is setting in and I'm so scared about not having that rush of love everyone speaks of. It's like it's someone else's baby, you think they're cute and you can love them, but something doesn't feel right. I keep picturing the moment I hold him for the first time and I don't feel anything, it's like I'm numb. Has anyone else experienced this? I suppose it's a good sign that I recognise it but what if I never bond fully?
