Hi melissa,

Welcome to the board. I think it is really normal to feel the way you are. Having a baby does change your life and if you weren't totally ready, it is understandable why you aren't feeling as ecstatic as the rest of your family is.

Have you discussed these feelings with your doctor? If not, I'd strongly suggest that you bring it up. Some ladies do experience depression during pregnancy and perhaps your doctor will be able to offer some advice and/or point you in the direction of a support group.

Does your husband know how you are feeling? Do you feel as if you are able to be open and honest with him about your feelings about having this baby?
