The first thing I remember thinking was "Wow that's how she looks, not how I pictured." Then "oh my god my baby is really here, she's right here on me."
I also remember thinking "why is her head all purple right there? is it bruised???" and later i did find out it was bruised from a vacuum i didn't know they used.
I said something like "hi emerald, i'm your mommy."
I had a c-section so during the process I just thought "Wow, this is extremely uncomfortable, I'm totally going to be sick". When he was born, I knew he would have a cleft lip, but I didn't know how severe it would be so I was really scared to see him because I was expecting the worst, when I saw him when they put him over the little cloth thing, I was just sooo relieved, he looked great! Then I heard him cry for the first time and to say the least I cried like a HUGE baby! I remember the nurses all around me saying "She's crying! She's crying!" Then I told Alex (OH) to go see if he was OK and he did. Ahhhh, I love thinking about him being born.
My first reaction was terror because they didn't lay her on me directly afterwards and she looked really really blue and wasn't crying....
I don't remember what I said first to her since I was really out of it (since she wasn't breathing and all that) but I think I just said 'I love you so much" something like that.
My first reaction was "Holy shit, she looks like Dora!" Then when she was handed back to me I realized she didn't look like Dora, I was just still high as a kite. The first thing I said to her, if I remember correctly, was "Wow...you're Snow White."
after the dreaded crowning pain i just remember having this big red baby chucked on me!
i looked down and saw he was boy , but also i was a bit worried as he was so swollen , i was just thinking why are you so fat your only a few minutes old
I said ' Hi little man, ive been waiting for you!'
Then i just started crying, ' its my baby , his a boy , my babys finally here!'
After id had a shower and stuff i went back in the room after having a wee to the find him laying in the incubater, no one else was in the room and i just fell in love with my little man , ( probably as all the swelling had gone down )
I thought and said omg your fat your so big and the nurse also said thats the biggest baby ive seen in years lol they werent wont wrong either he became a little celebrity everyone.wanted to see him haha
With Grace I remember saying "omg ahhhh, we did it!!" to OH...and thinking she was absolutely gorgeous....
Theo came out and they whisked him over to a little incubator to give him abit of oxygen to bring his colour back as he was very purple/blue so my first thing to say was "is he okay, why isn't he crying" and allsorts was going through my mind tbh!! Longest 2 minutes of my life waiting to hear him cry
