but i wake upsome mornings and just dont 'feel' pregnant anymore!! then theres days when i feel fine! im having another 'dont feel preg' day. has anyone else been like this? or is it me? when i was preg with ethan, everyday that went by i got more and more excited,talked about my bump none stop! but this time,i aint like that! do u think its cuz iv had a rough start with everything? or does everyone sometimes feel like this?
its getting me down as i get upset that i even feel like this! iv got the most wonderfullife growing inside me and yet there can be days where i feel nothing!! Sad

I think I remember days like that too... I think once the little one starts kickin ya all the time you'll be feeling very pregnant, every day Wink

I used to get worried on those days that Aaralyn would be very quiet and still Shocked but by evening she'd always be kickin about in there, keeping me awake Rolling Eyes

You're expected to be going through ups and downs (hormones!!) too, I think what you're feeling is normal Hug

i felt a bit like that sometimes when i was pregnant with izzy but i was very paranoid cos i had a mc a couple of months before hand. until she started kicking cos i didnt get much of a bump until i was 4-5months i stayed quite small in the beginning.

i think its normal hun what your feeling

i know-i was once preg with ethan LOL! and i cant wait for that enormous waiting game stage - at least then i wont be feeling the way i do now!! as much as i moaned about it with ethan,i think that was one of the best parts of my pregnancy (even if i did go over!)

Phew...I'm glad it's not just me who feels like that Hayley_Kev Thumbs Up

I have had a few mornings where I just don't feel pregnant for a while. Usually I manage to feel a bit sick after a few hours which makes me feel better Shocked

I wonder if it's because I had a MC last year too and I'm still a bit nervous. It's funny how people will say to me "oh, so-and-so had a MC at 18 weeks so keep an eye on things"...how lovely and encouraging they are Tell Off My hubby tells me all is well all the time and I've got this little heartbeat listening thing (that's my technical term for it Very Happy ) so that's reassuring Clapping

Like you, I didn't find this feeling with my daughter but then again, I'd never had a MC either so maybe that changes you a little.

Keep your chin up hon Smile

I remember feeling like that- used to poke my tummy to make Joseph move

My sister says it is very different with your 2nd- your first is new and exciting and although it is exciting with number 2+ you are so busy with your toddler you dont have the time to think about bump as much.

You will bond hun.

I remember I'd suddenly think, 'oh yeah I'm pregnant' when I was having George. Especially if I had a day where I didn't feel ill or I was really busy.

Yes, that would worry me too (of course I'd deny that I was worried and probably rush to the MW the next day Embarassed ).

As for bonding hon, you'll be fine. I always worried, even before I had my daughter, that I wasn't the 'mummy' type but I sure was. I think my hubby being so excited also helps Clapping

Hey, as we're pretty close in timescales, we'll have to keep an eye on each other for how it's going. I'm really keen to feel first flutters/movements but nothing yet (had last time by now), just lots of aches and twinges Smile I'm sure this one is a boy - it's far too chilled out Thumbs Up
