Finding out that you are going to have a baby is an exciting feeling particularly if you’ve been trying so hard and for so long. You have a wide selection of emotions that satisfies you with everything from pleasure to stress. All of these are natural emotions because your hormones are going to have a field day with your body over the next nine months.

Each month you will see something new and experience a new milestone. The biggest milestone in the beginning is when you feel your baby move for the first time. At first it will feel like little flutters or bubbles in your belly. Then you’ll feel solid movements in the form of bumps against the walls of your uterus. The baby is moving his or her arms and legs.

You will find out whether you’re having a boy or a girl. This will fill you with delight and you will have so many ideas as to what the baby room will look like, exactly what the title is going to be, and what kind of person they’ll grow up to be. Life is new and exciting. You and your partner are excited about the arrival of the baby.

Then the day arrives when the baby is born. The newborn is given to you. You’re not certain what to feel. Many women do believe love at first sight and are overjoyed with seeing their little one. But there are quite a few other women who don’t get this feeling at first sight and that is okay. They see their little one for the first time and, for some odd reason, they are underwhelmed. After the long wait and the fertility treatments, you thought you’d feel differently. After the baby is dressed and cleaned, the nurses bring them to you. You may feel a wild rush of emotions and you only want to cuddle and hold this little human that came out of you. If you do not feel this, do not be worried about it. Not every woman feels that love at first sight emotion. You know there is a connection but it’s not of undying love.

During the next few days, the love will grow. And if you’re breastfeeding, this emotion will grow stronger due to the amount hormones flowing through your body. An unconditional love for your child will grow.
