  • First time I thought my ds looked awfully skinny lol
    Second thought dd was so chubby and beautiful, then I felt sick and threw up! lol
    Third time I was so excited. I was sitting straight up and watching her come out, she had so much dark hair and when I say her little vagina I was so excited!!! I yelled, "it's a girl, my Madelyn!" I couldn't help smiling :)

  • I was very overwhelmed. He didn't cry at first so I was scared about that but after they told me he was alright I just wanted to hold him and look into his eyes and tell him I was his mommy. I wouldn't wait for that

  • My first thought was " Oh my god he's so beautiful " and then I started crying. I remember not expecting him to be that beautiful, because people always say not to get your hopes up because you may be disappointed, but my son was gorgeous and I was just amazed. I remember actually almost having a blushing feeling.

  • It was very surreal. I couldn't even open my eyes for the first few seconds cuz I was so nervous to meet him after all that time. I couldn't believe I had just given birth to a human life, even though I just spent 9 months expecting it!

  • "Dear God why would anyone do this more than once?!" was my first thought. HAHA. But they whisked my son away because he wasn't crying loud enough (they thought something might be wrong with his lungs). So mainly I just wanted to see my son. I was bleeding a lot, so after that stopped and I started to cry...they took me to see him.
