Can you tell I'm a first-time mommy?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Beloved DH and I went yesterday to pre-register and get a tour...and quite frankly, I am still grinning like a lunatic with my sheer happiness.<br><br>
The hospital has surpassed my expectations (which, I admit were rather low) since I thought it was going to be sterile, cold, impersonal.....but lo and behold, that was my ignorance since the birthing rooms were all so homey and warm...I didn't feel like a number but a <i>person</i>....I'm so HAPPY to be wrong!<br><br>
And we got to see the nursery...it wasn't like days of yore with rows of babies and tons of people peeking in; there were only two babies at the time since the others were all with their mommies and families, but I did get to see one lil guy...and I don't know what crack I am smoking (FIGURTIVELY SPEAKING!! LOL) but I just <span style="color:#FF0000;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">LOVE</span></span> the little hands....I was so enraptured just looking in on this lil guy that I didn't realize I had tears coming down my face until the nurse said she 'hadn't ever had such a happy mommy-to-be on a tour before and it was nice <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">'<br><br>
I just wanted to share...probably a lot is hormones, but sheesh---I NEVER thought I'd be blessed in this way in my life, so I'm just absurdly grateful too.<br><br>
Many blessings to all the other mommies out there!!

That is so wonderful! Our hospital tour made me all squooshy inside because it just seems like SUCH a great place to be and made me feel really confident about giving birth. So exciting.

I'm glad it left you feeling all warm and squishy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> We did our hospital tour Saturday, and both DH and I left thinking "holy CRAP, this is really gonna happen!!"

not in you ddc but had to post. when i went to pre-register for my first, they had me also sign paperwork for my soon to be born baby. when i saw the part that said "relationship to patient" and the woman had filled in MOTHER, i started to cry. that was me, i was about to become someones mother.
