Does it amaze you?

That right after you have a baby, you look down and think "That was IN me??" I still can't over it and I have done this a few times. It's hard to wrap my mind around that right now I have a full sized newborn going everywhere I go

YES! Isn't it wild to think that just a few days/weeks ago they were inside. How did they fit? LOL

Yes! It also amazes me that not only was that baby inside you, but that you created it from almost nothing

It's definitely amazing!

I usually have a moment or two when I'm snuggling with the baby and feel a joint or a movement of theirs and think, "Hey, I know where that was a couple days ago! Feels a lot better when it's on the outside!" My first baby had the pointiest bottom, LOL.

Re: Does it amaze you?

A newborn is so amazing...I have heard the term "babymoon" used to describe those first feelings of amazement and attachment! And I still look at all my children with amazement to think that each one started out growing inside of me...but when I saw my firstborn daughter give birth to my granddaughter (now 2 yrs old)..and then holding my grandbaby that had just been growing inside my own child..wow!
