Your very first thought when you saw your baby?

Hi ladies (and some gentlemen)!

Having no children myself yet, I have always been curious about the first thought that comes through your mind when you first see your baby. And what better place to ask than MN!

So please, I would love to hear your thoughts... from the cheesiest ("He's the most beautiful angel in the world!") to the funniest ("Gee, it looks like a blob!" - Angelina Jolie with daughter Shiloh).

Thanks in advance!

(then later, after a good dinner, went through all the usual schmaltzy "this is what I was made for...." boak-inducing boakery.

But the over-riding thought was the first one...

Oh my God he's huge and it's another boy!

And I said it outloud too, "she's looks just like my brother"

PurplePillow Wed 30-Sep-09 09:12:18

Pure relief tbh as she was born in an emergency section and then tears of joy and pure lovegrin

Cheesy I know but she is my only child grin

how did I make such I white baby! I was expecting a BRAAAAAAHN baby! I then turned to DH and said "fuck your family genes are strong" (he is white). She is still really pale and delicate. I'm sure people think I'm the nanny.

"Oh My God! He's got a furry back!"

He hadn't. He was gorgeous. I think it was the late shot of pethidine messing with my head.

piprabbit Wed 30-Sep-09 09:20:54

She's sooooo long!

choosyfloosy Wed 30-Sep-09 09:22:09

Took a long time to sink in that erm, there's nobody else to do it...

Buda Wed 30-Sep-09 09:24:09

It's a boy? Shit - need a new name!

bibbitybobbityhat Wed 30-Sep-09 09:25:14

Thank god she's alive

(crash c/s birth)

WinkyWinkola Wed 30-Sep-09 09:26:29

DS: "He looks like a plucked chicken,"

DD: "She's tiny! Is she ok?" (she wasn't tiny at all at 8lbs but compared to DS at 9lbs 9ozs, she was a shrimp)

Marioandluigi Wed 30-Sep-09 09:27:18

DS1 - god, look at that hair
DS2 - I hope that lump isnt sore and goes down (he was born by ventouse so had a massive lump on his head for about 11 months)
DD - She doesnt look like the name I had chosed

Poledra Wed 30-Sep-09 09:27:33

On waking from the general anaesthetic after an emergency c-s and being asked by DH if I wanted to see my beautiful daughter:

'No, I'm too tired, take her away, I'll see her tomorrow.' blush

Still bothers me 5.5 years and 2 more babies later.

minervaitalica Wed 30-Sep-09 09:27:37

in shock after 5 mins birth at 29 weeks:

"what happened? why does she look a bit like Voldemort?"


LilRedWG Wed 30-Sep-09 09:28:15

DH said, "It's a boy" and I replied, "That's the unbilical cord - it's a girl!".

SheWillBeLoved Wed 30-Sep-09 09:28:46

My first thought was "Ugh, why does she smell like that?!"

The first thing I said was "Is she pretty?!" as I couldn't see her (delivered on all fours and was stuck in that position from the shock of her wooshing out grin My sister had told me all through my pregnancy that she would tell me if I had an ugly baby hmm[loves her brutally honest and blunt sister emoticon] and so it must have been playing on my mind when I asked!

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Wed 30-Sep-09 09:29:43

DS1 - F098ck that hurt
DS2 - wow he is gorgeous
