@Nic01:  Oh, I know!  Isn’t is just precious?! I really hope someone can take that angle of picture for me in the future, but I know I won’t have a pro there or anything so it’s maybe more of a dream.

I never wear makeup, so I’m not too concerned. We might also have the woman who photographed our wedding in the delivery room, but idk yet.

Don’t sweat it.  Make up or no make up, hair done or not…it’ll be the most amazing moment of your life…

I personally don’t want any pix in the hospital. They are too cliched. Any pic you take of the baby is going to be its ‘first’ pic whether in the crazy hospital world or in the comfort of your own home. I prefer the latter.

After the baby, I will just want to go home SO BADLY. I might just drive out when no one’s watching. Lol!!!!

I looked like crap in my first pic with my son. I hadnt slept for days and been through labour and then emergency c-section. This is the first time i even saw my son he is already 24 hours old and i didnt care how i looked. I dont wear makeup anyway but i deffo look tired in this photo. My next will be planned c-section i think so i can make sure im at least clean with my hair washed (unlike in this pic where i had been sick on myself and its even in my hair ewww lol)

@MrsWBS:  I would take her phone and any camera away before she got to the hosptial. Rather, husband would need to do that. (or sister, who would probably understand the most)

@tracylesq:  Gorgeous picture! Was that taken by a professional photographer?

 

I am pretty vain, and while I would hope that my post-birth pic won’t be horribly unflattering…I’m of the opinion that the more “real” it is, the more special it is. An accurate depiction of that raw, intensely beautiful moment when you are holding your child for the first time is a meaningful record.

You moms look great! 🙂

I don’t wear makeup normally – I only pencil my brows in every morning – so I think my post-labour pics will look pretty similar to how I normally look, but maybe sweatier and more exhausted. I don’t really care that I won’t look super glam right after I have a baby. 😛

@Evie19:  Thank you!  It’s my absolute favorite picture and my husband took it.  He was snapping away like crazy in the OR.  Got lots of bloody ones too, ick.

@HeartsandSparkles:  OMG this is me. I have SUPER dark circles that look pretty much blue under my crazy pale skin. Even with foundation people tell me I look tired all the time. I’ve started just being a little rude and being like “thanks, I didn’t realize I looked that bad today.” SERIOUSLY WHO SAYS THAT TO A LADY.

Anyway, not pregnant, but if I ever give birth I will 100% have my foundation with me. If I’m totally high I may not have it on in the pics, but if I am capable I definitely will. Nothing wrong with putting on a little foundation–I definitely won’t be cat-eyeing the eyeliner though!

@BluebonnetBride:  dark eye circle twins!! Yay! People are seriously super rude- and then people wonder why women feel pressured to wear makeup! Hmmm… maybe bc you are a jerk!

LOL- skipping the cat-eyeliner… good call! 🙂
