  • Tears of joy streamed down my face on that final push. And I sobbed through a smile as he was brought from my legs to my arms. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. Pure bliss!

    DH did not cry though.

  • I think I was too drugged up, but after I was out of recovery and I finally held him I did!!!! My hubby did when our son was born!

  • He cried a little with our first and I cried with our second. I was relaly exhausted after delivering our first daughter, and after I delivered our second I had so many reservations about it, but when I saw her all that really did melt away just like I thought it would and I fell in love with her. :)

  • Not to sound harsh, but no I never cried at either of my kids birth. LOL. But when I made a scrapbook of the first year of their lives, I did cry looking through it.
