    That my c-section would be easy to recover from. I was so worried about the higher likelihood of c-section with twins and thought I'd struggle afterwards with pain while trying to care for bubs, but it was absolutely fine. I was still disappointed not to give birth vaginally, but couldn't in the end for babies' sake. I know it isn't always, but for me it was no problem and the whole thing felt like a pretty simple way to give birth and recover compared to what a vaginal birth must be like.

    Me too Nat I was petrified of having a Csection, then during labour it turned out I had to have one. Wow what a fast recovery I have had, my scar is tiny lol I would never choose a vaginal birth now.

    That after a vaginal birth, for 4 weeks after if feels like the insides of you vjj felt like they were on the outside.

    That hypnobirthibg does not work if you are induced and have contractions one on top of another for 5 hours.

    That breastfeeding hurts & is really hard & doesnt just happen easily for some people

    That coughing & sneezing isnt fun for the first little while after the birth

    That you should always trust your instincts (im glad I did - the hospital told me it was probably just braxton hicks & that I didnt have to come in unless I was worried - an hour later when we arrived at the hospital the contractions were 2 minutes apart & I was 4cm dilated!)

    Yes! My legs ballooned after birth - they were huge. I couldn't even get shoes on my feet.

    When you get induced contractions can hit you like a tonne of bricks.

    That not inductions are harder than spontaneous labors. In fact they can be easier less painful
