why did you cry the moment you were born?

You may think it is a silly question but look at it. I think maybe I had seen someone strange that I had never seen before I was born. Or probably it was too cold since we live in highlands besieged by mountains. Some say that is the first moment that one breathes using lungs. Why do you think is the reason behind that mystery? I think that is a funny experience you have ever had in your lifetime. Got any experience? Let me get your views please and do you think you had a reason to cry and if you had it how did you know it?

some priest who gave a sermon about the 7 last words said something about that cry. he said that when the baby, it somehow breathes deeply, and actually before he could even cry, he really needs to do that... and he said that the reason why babies do that is because that is a sign that GOD or the Supreme Being is lending life/breath to that newcomer... and that when we die that will be the last thing that we will give up... breath.. life... ahehe. i know its not really related to your question... just wanted to share that... n_n but some say that babies cry because after almost 9months of warm insulation inside their mothers womb, they suddenly came into a blinding, cold world...

We did cry the moment we were born in this world because that was the first time we were separated from our mother's womb.Thus we feel we cry for comfort and mother's touch.We also cry because the moment we breathe air we borrow our life from God and that we want to thank Him for giving us new life.

i cried when i was born because i thought i was abducted by aliens. everybody looked weird in their outfits with the gloves and the mask. all those knives and tool on the table. also, the lights were blinding. imagine the first thing you see is a room full of people with weird expressions and you can only see their eyes? that's a very frightening experience! who wouldn't cry!

Crying at birth is a physiologic responce from the lungs being compressed while passing through the birth canal, to expanding because the pressure is gone = the birth cry. It is not emotional, it is physical. Babies who are not traumatized at birth only cry once or twice, then quietly look around.

I didn't cry when I was born, until the doctor pinched me to make me cry. I'm kinda pissed off they did that to me- my first experience as a living human was being hurt...that's kinda sad. No wonder I grew up with an inherant dislike of the human race. If I suddenly found myself ripped out of a nice warm familiar place and into a cold, strange, probably scary place, i think i'd cry if i was a baby too.
