DS - hearing his cry. He was only 34 weeks and I had severe pre-e, so we were so thrilled to hear those little lungs working!
DD#1 - Listenning to music and relaxing through labor. DS's birth was pretty traumatic, and I was really sick and out of it. DH and I just wanted a peaceful entry into the world for DD, and it is just what we got. The best part was holding her afterwards, and not having anyone take her away. (I got a peek at DS before he was rushed to the NICU.) The next best thing was being surrounded with people. DH and I just cuddled her, family came to visit right away, and it felt great! Then watching DS meet her, just melted me.
DD#2 - SHopping through early labor, not realizing it was labor. I have to laugh at myself pretending to look inquisitively at things on the shelves at the store so other shoppers wouldn't bother me in a contraction! Then realizing it was really labor, that my body was doing it without being induced!
: Getting in the tub was AMAZING, wish I could have done a water birth! Feeling my whole uterus move down with contractions, and feeling my water break. Then realizing it was all over - so fast! And best of all was holding my lo, realizing she was really OK (another high risk pregnancy had us worried), and staring into her eyes while she held DH's little finger and looked between the two of us with these big bright eyes!
