Ha! This is so true. I just felt immense relief that labor was OVER.

I didn't get to see or hold either baby until thirty or forty minutes had passed. I literally had DH take a pic of DD2 with his phone so I could see what she looked like. But ... I really didn't care all that much. I mean, I was happy to get to see and hold them when it finally happened. I teared up some but wasn't weeping with joy. Bonding happened eventually, but it definitely wasn't right away. And I don't feel really bonded with this baby either, not yet.
