I know this will be a different experience, seeing the baby that you carried for 9 longs months face to face. Well as for my case, i already saw my baby when i had a trans-v ultrasound thought he was still so tiny... and i am not yet sure of his gender for i had it when i was just 7 weeks pregnant. I was so amaze knowing a life is growing inside me. I realized that life indeed is a miracle and i am so excited seeing my baby face to face but that will be next year. for now i will just feel him/her inside my tummy... Please share your experience.

Hi Friend, CONGRATULATIONS!!! that's a big accomplishment for the year.. hahaha.. I can never share any experience like what you feel because I have never been pregnant. I think, it is a wonderful experience like other first time mothers felt. I have lots of nephews and nieces but never have my own. I really love them like my own but I think it is a different feeling when it comes from you. Again Congratulations!!!

Hi friend, Thanks so much. Well i hear that all the time that the feeling is different if it is your own and i know that now because even if i haven't seen my unborn child i love him/her so much. I believe that he/she is a precious gift from God. Don't lose hope friend God knows the desires of your heart, He will surely bless you your own little bundle of joy in the future. God bless and Thanks again.

Well, I and my hubby decide not to have kids because it is hard at our age now hahaha.. you know what I"m saying? by the time our kids are in school we are alaready Old looks like grandpa and grandma. I am 48 and he is 51. We are not very much old but when we get to the point of having kids at this age, it might be harder. Well, I know of some who have kids when they are old but I think it is impractical. I got married in my 40's so it is no longer in a childbearing age.

It was the most wonderful feeling i have ever experienced. The most beautiful, amazing, and undescribable feeling i have ever had. Indeed, seeing your baby face to face for the very first time is the most beautiful gift any mother can have and the moment that you get to hold your baby, you have these mixed emotions of crying and feeling happy at the same time and you'll realizeat that very moment how much your mother loves you and how grateful you are to her giving birth to you. I wish you all the best. May you have a healthy, beautiful baby. Take care and God Bless!

Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I hear a lot of old people saying that you will understand your mother better when you become a mother yourself. For now i am so grateful with the blessings God has given us and thankful that i got my mom who is always being supportive at me. I will surely do the same with my kids. Thanks again and God bless.

Speechless.. That's what I can share with you. I think there is no words that can explain the happiness feeling that I had when I saw my baby girl and baby boy for the first time. Cry, smile ..anything that I can do to show to the world that I am the happiest person in the world.

Hi, did you have any difficulties while you were infanticipating? and how did you handle these difficulties? My friends are telling me that i have to be thankful for i don't puke when i get out of bed but usually i don't feel well in the morning. i have this feeling of light-headedness and headaches. I don't like the smell of perfumes too. But i guess this is just normal and my baby is worth all these sacrifices. Thanks for the post.

Hi, kenchi. I felt so excited and happy!!! I could not begin to tell you the wonderful feeling that passed through my heart. I was astonished and amazed at the beauty of my new creation. I fell in love with my unborn child. But when all of my kids were born, it melted my heart away. They were so precious all snuggled up in their blanket. They was so innocent and pure and they relied on me to feed them. They were so precious and helpless. I was in love with them. Congratulations on your new arrival soon to come. I hope that you can enjoy your new baby! Take care!

Hi Cream, thanks for sharing your feeling with me. that is true i too fell in love with my unborn child. This is an entirely different feeling. A friend told me that when you finally see your baby face to face all the sacrifices that you had while you carry the baby will all be gone for the the life of the child is a miracle. I am so excited to see my baby. Thanks so much for sharing your feelings it gives me great joy reading all the responses..
