My situation is kind of weird. I checked "only child" because I am an only child.. but I also have three siblings. lol. (two sisters and a brother)



My dad didn't acknowledge me, but he acknowledged his three other kids (even raised one of them).. and I met them once when I was 7 (and I adored them).. so I can't say that they don't count.. but they kind of don't count..



I did always want to have more than one.. I feel like I really missed out on a bond that a lot of siblings share. I'll never be an aunt in my own right.. I'm an aunt to my husband's siblings' kids.. and that's cool.. but because I don't have any bond at all with my siblings, I'm not really an aunt to their kids... and I don't have anyone that I can always feel the kind of connection to that siblings seem to have. My kids will have that. :)

Makes perfect sense to me. I don't talk much about it either. I take pictures because I regret not having a lot from LO and I feel one day I'd regret not taking them with this one. But I'm not all giddy and stuff. But maybe also because I can't set anything up or do anything :(

urgh thats exactly how it is for me!
i took a picture of my belly every single week with DD...with this one i have forgotten a few...
i also wonder if the whole excitement thing isnt so strong because i am not sure if i should set up a nursery. we might end up moving before he gets here or shortly after. very latest that we would move is in june. i really really really dont want to move and i want to set up a nursery for him, but whats the point if it may not even be here when he gets here?!
