  • I was happy to see my baby and glad he was safe, but sad and disappointed because I had to have a c-section.

  • I was pretty happy, not emotional at all, just happy. I can't imagine you would be sad unless something happened to the baby.

  • I was happy for the most part, but had really bad depression for like 3 months, where at least once throughout the day I would just cry for hours.

  • I had to have a section, so I wasn't nearly as tired or frazzled. I felt overwhelmed with all sorts of emotions. I was realived everything was okay, I was overjoyed to meet my son, I was excited for my family! Then once I got home everything sorta calmed down and I experienced slight post pardom, but I quickly sot the appropriate help and it went away! During this time you emotions and horomones will be running wild, you never know what you might feel!

  • Happy, overjoyed, full of love, confident, proud. I was full of energy. I was on an awesome high. I nursed, had a snack, transferred rooms, took a shower, ate breakfast, took pictures, more breastfeeding, called a bunch of people all within 2 hours. I felt like I could run a marathon. It lasted about 6 hours, then I was feeling a little sore and ready for a nap. Natural birth is the best!

  • With my first I was really really happy just scared cause they took her without me seeing her cause she wasnt breathing right.... with my second I was really mixed with emotions i had a really bad pregnancy and was on bedrest in a hospital away from home alot of the time then they sent me home thinking things had improved and i went into labor early with twins and they just let it go and lost the first one plus my SO wasnt there (my fault) so I was happy but very very very sad too!! with my third I also had a really rough pregnancy i went through cancer treatments along with being pregnant and when he was born again i was really sad my SO wasnt there (again my fault) but I was happy to have a healthy little boy... now we are together and expecting a little girl in a few weeks and im hoping its everything id hoped for us being together!!!
