So my husband and I are having our 3rd baby in 5 days. I'm having a c-section, so I won't be able to hold her as soon as she's born. They will take her to the nursery before I even get to hold her. Well, I told DH that when he brings our little girl out of the operating room to meet my mom and the rest of our family, I don't want any of them to hold her. I want to be able to hold our daughter before everyone else. The only ones who can hold her are my husband and the nurses. Is this wrong of me? I just don't think it's fair that everyone else gets to hold MY daughter before I do.
maybe you can talk the nurses into just showing the baby through the nursery glass. The rest of the family can visit with the baby after you get your room, and you are both settled in. Are you rooming-in with the baby??
Talk to your nurses before they start the C-Section. Sometimes they will intervene for you and I bet they have BTDT before with a request like this!
I don't think you are selfish at all feeling like you should be the first to hold the baby (besdies DH since he will go to the nursery with her while they stitch you up) I felt that way too after my baby was born and I was the last to see/hold her.
But... if it doesn't go your way, it probably isn't worth causing a lot of drama about later since the rest of the family will probably get hurt feelings about it.

LOL...You are so funny and silly...but I understand how you feel but if you look at the situation you are in it is going to be impossible. The only thing you can do is get some rest and be happy your baby girl is healthy. Unless your dh can bring her by and bring her to you before anyone gets there...And no you are not selfish...Do what you have to do to make this happen and if it doesn't happen your way atleast you still get to hold your baby girl.GL
