With DD!- since I had 2 miscarriages while trying, I did not connect either. It seemed like everyone else was excited except me. I was more like "well, we will see".

And then we went to the 20 week and got to see her moving all around and found out she was a girl. About a week later, I could feel her moving and started to connect.
But honestly- I did not truly bond with her until she was 6 weeks old and nursing and she smiled at me.

The bonding will come, and the "ifs" may hang out awhile. You will never forget your son and you may not feel ok until your new baby is born- and that is ok

Enjoy each DAY of the pregnancy and don't look too far in the future (until you are 36 weeks and need to get ready for labor)
