May be the trans having an issue on the first shift.
Get it checked at a trans shop to confirm. Itmay be valve body issue from your description.

Sorry, in your previous post, it was only after the first shift. It does after all shifts?

Still sounds like trans issue

Check the fuel pressure. It may be low causing this hesitation
