Has it hit you yet?

When I was preggo I asked a friend of mine with a 1 year old when it hit her that she was going to have a baby, because it hadn't hit me yet. She said it hadn't hit her yet either and I thought she was being stupid because she had a baby in her arms!

But, my DS is 3 months and it kinda hasn't hit me yet. Well, it keeps hitting me. It's like when you get married and for awhile you're like, "Wow. I got married!" Then it gets old hat and you're not impressed that you did it anymore. I keep waiting to stop thinking, "OMG, I have a baby!" But I think I have a ways to go yet.... 

Re: Has it hit you yet?

  • I'm totally still in the "OMG, I have a baby" stage. I'll sit and grin over pics of him as he's sleeping on my chest. I'm filled with excitement and fear and joy and still a little mourning. It's crazy. Motherhood hit me by surprise, and I'm still reeling.

  • At least once a day I look at my DD and think "She's mine!  She's really my daughter!".  I am still shocked and amazed.  It is the best and scariest feeling I've ever had.

  • Its sooo nuts! I keep wondering how this baby got here already!!! Next week will be the week that we conceived!!! How NUTS is that!?!!?!? One year ago self should have a look at how things turned out, lol!

    Just the other night I was sitting in the living room rocking her, and DH was in his office and I told him to come here, that I had a baby in my arms!

    I keep telling myself "I'm a mom" and it's still crazy to wrap my brain around it! The pediatrician's office called a while back to confirm an appointment and asked, "Is this Rory's mom?" when I answered, and I was like, "Oh! Yes it is! I'm his mom!". The receptionist probably thought I was a loon! :P

  • I honestly keep thinking she belongs to someone else and they're going to come pick her up.  They're just REALLY late!

    ... Is it weird that I'm used to being called "X's mom" because of my dog?  When we go to the dog park, all the humans know the dogs' names but rarely get to know each others' names, so I've been "Elvis's mom" for about four years now.  Because of that, the leap to "Amelia's mom" when the pediatrician's office called didn't feel so strange.

    Really, the whole "motherhood" thing doesn't feel that odd to me.  I don't know if it's that it really hasn't hit yet, or that I've been "mothering" pets for as long as I can remember! Wink

    Oh I relate! DS's pediatrician called to remind HIM of his appointment and asked for HIM, and it just made him so real. It was his first phone call.
  • I can't believe it. Sometimes I look at her and wonder wth were we thinking! And other times I marvel at how amazing she is and how I can't believe she's mine. I always knew I wanted to be a mom I just never knew what it would truly entail.

    I feel like a mom for sure. I do get awe struck all the time, even with my big babes! Just the other day I was looking at my 8 year old daughter and I thought wow she is mine, she is so wonderful. I think that about all my kids. I posted a picture of all four on facebook, and I sat and looked at it for a long time just amazed that all four grew inside of my once, that they are all mine, it is sort of surreal. I have this picture of my DH and our three boys that is one of my favorites, I look at that and I am amazed that I have so many boys in my life, and I just love it!  I am completely in awe of LO and constantly thinking how lucky I am. I don't know that it ever goes away that crazy though of "wow I am a mom". I think it happens less and less as they get older and life gets busy, but it is always there.

    For me, the shock has gone from "OMG, I'm a mom!" to "OMG, I have a 1 year old" or two year old, or whatever.  DS1 will be 5 in October, and DH and I will often ask each other, "Can you believe we have a 4 year old???  We have three kids!  How did this happen so fast?"

    Married to J since 5/05, Mommy to T (10/08), L (08/10) and C (02/13) who was born at home.
