  • Welcome and congrats! Not feeling excited, especially early on is a very common feeling. I still have days that I feel very anxious. Wishing you all the best!

  • Welcome! I'm ten weeks and still extremely cautious. I was downright refusing to think about it until my ultrasound. I do feel a bit better now but yes, totally normal to not feel excited.

  • Welcome and congratulations! I'm due about a week after you! Yes, I think not feeling excited yet is completely normal after what we've all experienced unfortunately. I can already tell this is a laid back supportive board so welcome!
