my son is 6 weeks today i feel sooo lucky after nearly 3 years of trying for him I've finally got my bundle of joy but.... i'm finding it hard to accept i'm a mam and I've something so special he's my life , my world !!!! but its hard to believe i also think I've got PPD - would that have any thing to do with this feeling?... but i also felt like this when pregnant i'd find it hard to accept friends family will go 'go to mammy' and i look startled like ehhhh me!!! :/ it's very strange. i love my son to pieces hes my everything i'm a fab mam i try my hardest and always will f him. is it normal?
I'd say so. My daughter is 7 weeks old and it's still hasn't really hit me that I'm a mom. Sometimes I look at her and am just baffled that she actually came from me, and that I'm her mother. It's also weird when people hand her to me and say "Go to your mommy"..I'm just like, who? me? Haha. I'd say it's all very normal, though. I think it just takes some time to all sink in. As for your PPD, I would talk to your doctor about it if you think it's something that's getting in the way of your everyday life.
