my first time pregnant too and i definately know what you're feeling! even after seeing the baby having hiccups on the ultrasound it doesnt seem quite real.

For me it felt unreal till I had my 1st ultrasound and even then It was only seeing my name on the picture that made me really believe it. I think a part of me will be "unbelieving" till I hold her in my arms. It's just such an unreal experience. I totally know it's real but I just can't believe it's me that's going through it and not a friend or family member. :)

So Congrats on your pregnancy and enjoy the ride!

Hi! It's my first time, too, and my first time on a message board. For the first couple weeks it was knowledge I knew in my head, but had trouble registering. I was just so shocke! Then a couple weeks of morning sickness made it seem a little more real, but I felt so bad I couldn't really concentrate on the fact that it was a baby making me feel that way. After the morning sickness stopped, this really weird thing starting to happen. It feels like my stomach has moved up and midsection literally feels crowded. here, at almost 9 weeks, is when reality is finally starting to set in! Hope this helps, but I hear from everyone it's normal to be in 'shock' for the beginning;-)

Hi there!

Welcome, and congratulations!! Early in pregnancy, there is a certain "unreal" feeling to it. You still feel the same, yet know what this baby is growing inside of you. Until baby gets bigger and you start feeling him/her, it is sometimes hard to believe. There were moments in early pregnancy that I would forget I was pregnant - you're not showing yet, there are no signs of anything there, etc. So what you are feeling is perfectly normal!

As for your questions, feel free to ask away here! I'll do what I can to help answer them. Wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!
