How did you feel when you became a parent of your first child? Where you around during the delivery? Can you share the experience?

um. i would hope i was around for the delivery lol. i'm the proud mother of one baby girlie. and i felt an uncontrollable and overwhelming love for the new baby i was holding in my arms. even though i didn't have a hard labour at all, i had a c section and felt no pain what so ever. i still just loved this lil baby as soon as i seen her. maybe it started before that and i just didn't realize. it was the most precious moment i've ever had to see her for the first time and look into my husbands eyes as we both start to tear up and feel this amazing love for a precious baby we created together. We made a lil baby, and she is the most perfect thing in the world! i think all parents think that of their kids :)

I'm the mother, so obviously I was there for the delivery, my husband watched it too. He was proud of me for going through that! I was overcome with emotions, it was amazing to finally see the little guy that I saw on the ultrasounds and felt kicking actually outside in the world. Then I got really tired and spent a long time nursing him and just staring at his beautiful thick hair and admired his little hands. It was very surreal and I love thinking about that.
