So after much urging from Yvonne, I finally pulled finger and joined a Parenting Support Forum. The problem … I feel like a fraud! Like I don’t belong. Like I’m some kind of hoaxer living someone elses life. My little darling is 11 weeks old on Sunday and it still hasn’t sunk in that she’s my daughter, I’m her mother. Do you think it ever will?
So I joined the parenting forum and so far, all I’ve managed to do is post a “I’m New” posting. I can’t seem to bring myself to join in any of the conversations or to give advice or answer questions. I feel like the outsider looking in, convinced that they’re going to figure out I’m a fraud at any minute. A fake Mamma and not the real deal at all.
I’m guessing that most infertiles go through this to some degree or another?? Right? I think my situation is exacerbated by the fact that I literally had a 6 day pregnancy, maybe if I had more time it would feel more real?
