My twins are 2 weeks old today, which means they have been in the NICU for 2 weeks. The only time I feel like they are mine, or that I am indeed a "mom" is when I am there in the NICU holding them. Then, I go home empty handed and go on as if I never had them (grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning up house). Is this normal? Moms/Dads with experience in the NICU...did you feel like this? Overcome this when your baby/babies came home? I am so afraid that I am just starting to feel detachment. They were born 7weeks earlier than their due date. They are doing great in the hospital. Doctors/nurses say although we are feeling antsy, they will be home "soon" but won't give us a timeline besides "by their due date".
