I was feeling very happy, and could not believe that I was a mother already. :) It was almost four years ago, since my baby girl born, and now i have two children, still could not believe that my life has been changed after becoming a mother. How about you?

I felt excited, happy and scared all at once. I was only 20 years old when I had my first child and I knew nothing about taking care of a baby. I had to call my mom and ask her questions like how long you warmed up the formula and little things like that. It is hard to beleive you can love something so much! I have two children now and I love them both very much.

When my first son was born I was kind of in shock! :P LOL But once that feeling went away I was happy. I never thought a baby could make me feel so complete. :)

I have mixed feeling too for my second born son. When I saw him just did not react, maybe because still shock or in pain like what you had. But few minutes later, when I hold him in my arm, I feel like I was the happiest person in the world.

I still cant believe that I too am a mother.I never planned on having kids but now I have 3 and love them all dearly.Kids do change your life mostly for the good though.They are stressful t times but there is no greater feeling in the world than when they look into your eyes and smile at you and say i love you mommy.Its just the greatest feeling ever.

I agree with you. I feel very happy when my daughter say "I Love You, Mama" before she goes to bed. :)

My daughter was born march 2006 i was in labour for 5 days and in the end had an emergancy section but she is the best thing that has happened to me even though i am no longer with her father she is still my baby and nothing will change that ever. My life has changed i am a single mum who stays at home to look after my daughter a big change since i worked full time as a station manager and owned my own car etc and now i have nothing but my daughter it does take its toll but it is all worth it when they smile and say mummy!!!

I was so happy to be a mom! I couldn't believe it. It was the most amazing feeling and you have so much love for this little person you just met. You want to do anything and everything for them. It was amazing to think I made this baby and carried him for 9 months. I love being a mom. :)

I felt the same way when my son was born. I keep looking at him and I was telling myself, "That's my baby." I cannot believe that such adorable angel came from me. I felt very happy and so complete. Being a mother made me more responsible and gave me more direction in life. I love my little baby so much. He is such a wonderful blessing and I feel very happy every time I see him smile, play or just by sleeping. It feels so good that God made me an instrument to bring him to this world.
