Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I couldn’t stand being pregnant, but I loved having my babies. I am the youngest of parents who were the youngest in their families, so I was also the youngest cousin. So there weren’t any babies or younger kids in my family for me to experience.
But I was amazed at how much in the first moments of life I got so much from my baby simply looking at me. It was amazing how instantly I got back all of that love from my sons.
