When did you first feel a connection with your new baby girl or boy? — The Bump
1st Trimester

When did you first feel a connection with your new baby girl or boy?

I was in the bath and I could hear the movements of my baby swirling. It was a really nice feeling and this is the first time I really felt like crap this is real. I felt more bonded with the baby.

  • hahahahahaha
  • With DD1 the whole time basically. Definitely once she was born.
    With DS I felt connected but disconnected until he was a few weeks old.
    With DD2 I felt connected fairly quickly and instantly once she was born.
    This one I'm excited for but I know the connection becomes different as time goes on.

  • One night I woke up, super thin and super hungry because I forgot to eat dinner and was too tired... so I touchedmy bump where I knew the uterus was (around 13/14 weeks) and I felt it's top very "sharply".  I imagined right away how there was a tiny little alien looking baby in there , maybe kicking and moving, and I felt this instant connection.  It hit me more than the 12 week US did... good lord, there IS something in there for real :D 
    Me:  35 year old FTM, a busy city banker living in London, and a constant worrier. 
    My DH:  French guy, car fanatic, best husband ever.  
    Our baby boy:  Due on 17 April, currently 37 weeks.  I can't believe it - I made it to full term!!!! 
    Last measurement:  3150 gs at 37+1!  This is going to be a big baby :)
