As they approach the birth, most pregnant women become more and more emotionally attached to their unborn baby and spend increasing amounts of time thinking about their baby. While pregnant women in general form an emotional attachment to their baby that increases substantially when they can feel the baby moving inside them, IVF mothers form a very strong and protective bond with their baby from the very beginning of their pregnancy and spend a lot of time thinking about their baby right from the start. So, if you've been hoping for a baby for a long time, you'll probably spend a lot of your pregnancy thinking about your baby.
Don't forget to leave some emotional space for your partner — you'll need your partner's full support and involvement after the baby is born! The partner sometimes feels a bit left out when attention is totally focused on the pregnant belly, so try to include your partner in your excitement and anticipation.
