Do you remember how did it feel like to hold your baby for the first time ? Were you afraid , overwhelmed .. did u cry ? :) Share your experiences and stories. Do u remember how fragile your baby looked like ? I for one usualy dont express my emotions too much but on that single day i was overwhelmed, as i was holding something so small and defenceless that it brought a tear to my eye. How did you do, and did u find urself all confused or were you allready prepared for parenting ?

I remembered when the nurse asked me to open my eyes. I was very overwhelmed and cried. It is a wonderful feeling since I had to wait for 2 years before I had my first baby. I felt that a miracle was born into this world. My boy changed my husband for the better. He smiles and laughs a lot now. He used to be a very stern and serious man. Even his mother was very pleased with his changes.

As your husband , i changed aswell (for the better ofc. :) ). Is sure is amazing what child can do to a parent, how it can change whole personality in a person, and how often it makes us think about real values in life. Thank you for your response.

I just had my first beautiful daughter three months ago. The first thing that came to me was my lord she is beautiful, I am a blessed mother, and I just want to cry for I always wanted to be a mother. It was the best feeling of joy that I could ever experience. I would have to say there is not a feeling like it at all.

It is 21 years since I had my daughter, but I remember very well that what I felt mostly was wonder and amazement. I just found it so hard to believe that this wonderful little thing came from me! I also felt humble (can't really explain that).
