Like you I'm expecting in a couple of weeks DD2. I remember DD1 birth like it was yesterday. She popped out and was placed on my tummy and I pulled her up to snuggle on my chest. The midwife gave us a lovely warm blanket she didn't cry just looked around and I fell in love. We stayed snuggling for ages until she started rooting around for my boobs. But alas they were too big for her little mouth but as I had GD I had some expressed colostrum to give her and while we were having cuddles the midwife checked her sugar levels and mine. We cuddled for about an hour and that gave my midwife plenty of time to deliver the placenta and do everything he had to do for both of us and it gave plenty of time for her first set of clothes to be warmed in the humicrib. I was still quite sore so my hand holder and good friend dressed her for me and had lots of cuddles while the midwife disconnected my drips etc. Once I was ready for a shower and fresh clothes myself I gave DD some more colostrum and I had a small meal and then we wandered back to my hospital room where I proceeded to watch her and marvel that she was really here!!! I had a couple of visitors (close family) that evening and didn't sleep much that night cause I was too busy watching my girl lol. The midwives helped me try to feed her every 3-4 hours but I had plenty of colostrum in the freezer just in case. My DD made lots of noise while she slept so every time I would start to drop off I'd wake up to check all her little noises.
I can't wait to experience this again and pray we both have a complication free delivery.
