The first time I left the hospital with my babies it felt very scary because I’m a new mom.
He felt so tiny and the night sky felt so big. I’m still a little bit emotional about it as well.
I would say it was quite terrifying. You’re used to having all the nurses and everybody there. The professionals that know what they’re doing.
Yeah. I was very nervous but excited at the same time. I was so happy to finally be bringing her home.
I wasn’t scared to leave the hospital with him. I was ready. I had prepared for it the whole time I was pregnant. I’m reading all the baby books. I’m on Our Site. I did the apps. The What to Expect. All of them. I was just kind of excited to start my life with him.
The first time I left the hospital with my second child was much easier than I left with my first child.
I was out in 24 hours. I’m like, “You’re number three. Get in the car seat. We’re heading out. We got to go. I don’t want to be here very long.”
I was so uncertain of myself and that’s probably the first time that’s ever happened in my life. I was so unsure. I was happy, overjoyed, but I was like, “I can’t believe you’re letting me leave with this little person.”
It is stressful leaving the hospital because you’re going from this safe doctor to now you have your baby on your own.
Oh, when I first got my son home, I actually started crying because it actually hit me that I’m a father now. I have someone to take care of. I have more responsibilities. It just really hit me that I get to take him home into my own space and do what I want with him. Nurture and to care for him.
I felt overwhelmed. I was getting used to being a new mother. I was still in school. I just felt like I had so many roles to play that I did not know how to start.
