When you baby was born did you think they were cute?

I didn't. As mean as that sounds I didn't think she was cute, she had the newborn squished face she was red and dark and light haha she was tri-color her nose was so smushed I was like eww who's nose is that. Now don't get me wrong I loved her from the moment I knew I was pregnant and loved her even more when I got to hold her. Of course after all the swollen-ness was gone I was like you are beautiful!

  • I thought all of my kids were funny looking when they were born.

  • I don't know if it was because he was overdue, or what, but my LO wasn't all purple and squished when he was born. He was pink and cute! Yes, he was swollen, but he still looked cute. I have seen babies that weren't very cute when they were first born though.

  • I thought my son was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen from the moment he came out :) He really wasn't too swollen or anything though. He was a tad bit cone-headed though which I was concerned about, but it was normal and went away the next day. I understand what you are saying though, sometimes it takes a couple days for the cuteness to set in.

  • no I thought both of my girls were beautiful when they were born. One looked just like DH (oldest) until she was about 1.5 now at 5 looks just like me lol. My youngest DD didn't look like either of us when she was born I would joke saying maybe they switched babies in the hospital lol now at 2.5 she looks just like her daddy

  • Omg, yes! My son was, and still is, the cutest baby i have EVER seen, lol. He was born by c section, so he wasn't squished or anything. He had the fattest little cheeks (still does) and sooo much hair, He was gorgeous and looked just as I had pictured him all along. It was actually weird, because he was sooo close to the image I had in my head. :)

  • My first was pretty, but the second was red and squished and had one eye closed. In a few days he was a lovely baby, but my first look at him made me amused. :)

  • I thought my daughter was cute, but I'm pretty sure my husband didn't. Even after she was a few months old, I asked him if he thought she was cute and he said, "all babies are ugly, she's just less ugly than the others."
