Sentimental — The Bump
Success after IF


Are you more sentimental now compared to before baby?

I feel like I am. I spend time reminiscing about this time last year. It makes my heart happy thinking about how this time last year I spent Thanksgiving and my birthday announcing to the world DH and I were expecting twins. And now they are here. There is just so much to be thankful for this year. Also, I've never been a crier and I always feel a little choked up at the memories and at others joy.

Re: Sentimental

  • Yep for sure! You have a different appreciation for parenting then you did before kids. And the fact that the love you feel for them is almost unexplainable how much you love them and you would jump in front of a car for them.

  • Agreed - DH and I are both sentimental saps! We get all teary eyed over her milestones, looking back at old photos of her (haha...."old" is 7 months ago), etc. We just had our first Thanksgiving meal with part of our family and I'm sappy after it too. I think IF is such a surreal process, and so is being a parent, that it's hard not to be a big ol' sap!

  • I was okay until her first birthday, now I'm kind of a wreck. It doesn't help that I have an app that shows me throwback photos and so many of them are of my little squishy newborn, who is now acting like a toddler.
