I cry every time. It's like my guilty pleasure..I'm pathetic. I mean, yes, incredibly medical (but having two c sections, I'm used to that) but each time the baby is born either vaginally or by c-section, I'm a mess.
Agreed that it's a terrible show. I just love watching the babies being born and then the first few moments with mom. Can't wait for that feeling again. :)
As for the roller coaster of emotions - I suppose it doesn't matter what show I watch. My DH & I watched National Geographic's Frozen Planet the other night and at one point, they show little penguin babies who don't make the cold winter or who fall out from under their dad's feet and I cried at that. Same goes for when the whales capsized the poor seals who were simply sunning themselves on an ice flow.
And there is a Pampers commercial that shows all these babies and at the end Pampers (a company which I don't support) says along the lines of "Pampers thinks all babies are miracles". And there I am stifling a sob.....
