    TMI!

    If you're going to ram from about 36 weeks onwards, or a few weeks after giving birth, and you want to do it...uhh...doggy style...

    WEAR A BRA AND BREAST PADS!

    Gravity works it's magic on milk-filled boobies that are pointing downwards. You might just get up afterwards and notice two massive wet milk patches on your mattress!

    And if bubs suddenly pulls off mid feed to look at something you most likely will squirt them in the face!!

    It was agony to sit down for weeks after giving birth naturally! All my lady bits were bruised.

    BF is hard work so get yourself a Lactation Consultant. Best thing I EVER did after 2 failed attempts at BF my first 2 babies.

    i was told in hospital to expect cramping when breastfeeding - it's ur uterus getting smaller and going back into it's usual position. i also bled at every feed for the next 6-8 weeks.

    I passed out when they tried to get my up the next morning after my c-section. I vomited when i first tried to eat after surgery even tho i was starving!
    Baby blues kicked in full ball day 2.
    Pain medication is your friend. Even if your not in pain TAKE WHAT THEY ARE OFFEREING! get onto pain reief asap as soon as you feel that twinge or it just gets so bad you wanna throw up.
    My milk took 2.5 weeks to come in.
    Get used to people looking and feeling your boobs esp if ur seeing an LC lol
    get used to being asked "do you feel full"? i never knew what that meant or what it felt like untill my milk finally came in and let down 2.5 weeks later...boooooom!

    Haha oh the memories coming back to me after reading all these!!!

    What happened to me which I didn't know....

    When you hear of your vag swelling, it means swelling!! I seriously looked like I had nuts! (TMI? Ha!) My partner freaked out!!!

    I will never leave the house when I'm nearly due if I ever have another bub... I was at home when my waters broke and dead set if that ever happened to me in public I'd die. It gushed, and gushed and gushed. It didn't stop at all. 2 trips into the hospital and I had to sit on plastic sheeting, and when I was at home I soaked EVER towel in the house!

    Not being able to go a day without tying to nap will end... The rest of your life you will never be as exhausted as what you are in the first couple of months. Don't try to push yourself and rest when you can.

    When my milk came in I couldn't even wear a bra cause of the pain.

    BF is awesome... Hard at first... But so awesome!

    Everything gets easier but it's ok to ask for help.

    It's the best time ever!

    Go into labour open minded... Anything can happen.

    Use whatever pain relief you feel you need.

    After going through birth, your partner will have a whole new appreciation for you after seeing what you go through.

    It's ok to let your partner leave the delivery suite when you are not in full on labour. They need a break too and with my dp, a walk to get a drink from a vending machine on another floor done wonders...

    Your dp won't think any less of you if he looks 'down there' while you are pushing haha

    When people give you unwanted advice jut nod and smile lol

    That's all I can think of at the moment but I'm sure there is more...

    I hope you haven't been scared too much, it really is a beautiful time so enjoy it

    Bahahaha!!! Cracked me up!
    Also thought of another.... Farts feel good after giving birth so don't be surprised if all the mums in your room are doing it... Or... If like me, you do it and are worried... Most of the mums near me giggled cause they know exactly what you just went through lol

    BFing is HARD WORK! at the beginning, so don't feel bad if it takes awhile to work things out. And formula isn't poison, don't feel bad if you decide to make that choice for whatever reason.

    Your water might not break at the start of labour... I kept waiting for mine to break, I slept on a towel, made sure not to have nice sheets on the bed... And I ended up having it broken by my midwife when I was at 10cm dilated

    When it comes to birth, anything can happen! It's good to have some ideas about what you'd like to do, but don't make any firm decisions. It's a good preparation for parenting- you just need to go with the flow sometimes.

    You -will- know when you're in proper labour. I was all 'oh, this isn't so bad, maybe I just have a great pain tolerance!' and then a few hours later...

    You may not get the birth you want or expect. But don't feel robbed or "Ra.ped" the doctors are only doing what's best for you an bub.
