    Since we've had a few hot topic issues, I thought I'd start a new thread where we can all gush with positivity. Soooooo......what are you looking forward to about holding and meeting your baby for the first time?

    I'll start. I'm looking forward to nuzzling my baby's downy hair (if he or she has any!) and kissing the bottom of his or her feet. I'm also looking forward to seeing whether the baby has my OH's beautiful blue eyes or my hazel eyes. :)

    I look forward to me looking into his eyes and his eyes looking into mine and connecting with him a different way then just having him grow inside me

    I can't wait to feed my baby. It doesn't matter if it's with breast or bottle I've done both and there is just something special about holding your baby and feeding it.

    I can't wait to hold my baby close and smell that beautiful baby smell that you just can't get enough of. And to stroke her/ his little face.

    I'm looking forward to that first moment of seeing him or her, when Baby is placed in my arms and I get my very first chance to really look at who I have created.

    I can't wait to hold/feel/smell him or her and see if (s)he has the same funny wee bent toe that my DH and DD both have!

    (sorry, I'm sneaking in here early, I'm not officially meant to be in second tri yet but 1st is doing my head in)

    I just can't wait altogether, though I'm going to have to, not due till December...

    I can't wait until we are all alone after having her and it's quiet and I can really take my time looking at her and smelling her I can't wait to hold her close over my shoulder and listen to her breath! I just can't wait I love her so much already and can't wait to hold her in my arms x

    All of it! In some ways I am more excited this time around. When I was pregnant with my son, it felt a bit unreal and abstract. This time I know how amazing and wonderful it is and I can't wait to see my baby's face and see if it's a boy or girl. I can't wait to nurse again.

    Many, many things, but in particular I'm looking forward to holding his/her feet. I know that dh is looking forward to this too. Weird, I know, but it's just a silly little thing.
