My name is Jessica and I'm the mother of an 8 month old babyboy, named Noah. When I first seen my baby, after he was born, I cried a little, I thought, "oh my gosh, I had an ugly baby". It sounds so horrible but I know that when your expecting you tend to say things like: I just want a healthy baby, or it doesn't matter what my baby looks like I'm gonna love them anyway. Throughout all of my pregnancies it's what I thought about most. I guess I thought about it so much because I was afraid if they were horribly disfigured or in fact even ugly I would love them a little less.
My sons umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck as I pushed him out, which caused him to suffocate while I was birthing him. This in fact made his face bruise and he looked really ugly in all of his newborn pictures. I just wondered if maybe others had the same feelings when their children were born?
My son is a cutie pie now, he's gonna break a lot of hearts down the line. I don't know how I'm gonna deal with that!
