Do some women really feel like that after they give birth? Is it common?

"Right after I pushed my son out and the doctors put him on my stomach he wasn't moving, the first thought that crossed my mind was that I should eat him. I've been told that most parents don't "fall in love" at first site with their child, but I was not expecting a reaction like that. I still feel ashamed of it years later that it even crossed my mind because I am always getting praise for how wonder my son is and how awesome a mother I am."

  • Eating my baby? No.

    But the first thing I said when I saw her was a half scared-half surprised "Whaaah!" it was mostly wrapping my head around her actually being real, and not just kicking sensations in my belly. The whole bloodiness and such around her definitely added to my reaction.
