Having a baby when you're not a baby person

I'm not exactly a baby person. Ask anyone in my family and they'd tell you that it was a huge and shocking surprise that I even got pregnant. I don't really like babies still even now, but I love my son to bits.

I have had some problems with my feelings of love towards my child, it's a little difficult for me and not what I think is 'normal'. But I'd never hurt or neglect him in the least and I'm still super protective.


I think having a baby when you are not a baby person may not be the best idea. I'm not sure the reason why someone would do that- is it to have the joy of the post-baby kid stage? To make a husband happy? ... Narcisstic procreation?
