Congrats and a baby is a miracle made of love between two people . Just imagine a little you or a little of your husband able to run around. I'd you feel alone that baby is with you and needs you and dont worry a mother knows what to do at the time and your not alone you have family and they will help you maybe your mom or his mom an you will learn and u will no what to do in the situation I hope this helps at least a little. Realize your lucky there's many people that wish for a baby that have trouble having one

I'm confused. you're married, yet you feel lonely and depressed? That doesn't sound like marriage to me. Talk to your husband! If you didn't want to be a mother, then why didn't you clear that up with your hubby before you got married so that he knew beforehand?? You should've told him to wait until you're comfortable. Does your hubby know you feel like this about the baby? you need to work on your communication skills girl. I don't mean to be harsh. I'm just trying to be real. and communication is key in any relationship. anyway, you can't force yourself to feel connected to the baby, and you cant force yourself to want to be a mom. these are things that should just come naturally! something that could help is to talk to your hubby about it and maybe he can be supportive and help you. he is your husband after all.
