    That a bag of syntocinon after the actual birth can dramatically reduce both the heaviness and length you bleed for. Omg I wish I had it for my 5th Bub.

    Lots if ppl saying about after pains. I was terrified of the after pains after dd (2nd child). I got magnesium gel for dd2 and it worked wonderfully! Still painful but not as bad as dd.

    After birth pains. I didn't have any after DS but OMG I certainly did after DD. They were worse than contractions.

    I guess realistically I should have known this one but my pregnancy was so incredibly trouble free that I arrogantly believed birth would be too. It was just like a downwards slope of bad to worse for me.

    No one told me that birth may not be the happy occasion you see all over tv. I imagined sitting up on the bed with my DP and our beautiful baby so completely in love. In reality I was so exhausted that I had the midwife sitting on the bed with me feeding my daughter while I couldn't even hold her. The room was buzzing with doctors and poor DP was traumatised. Then I was taken to the ward and left by myself scared and alone and unable to sleep. I almost felt a small amount of resentment for my daughter for the situation I was left in.

    I was told by many that you forget the bad, I didn't believe just how true that was. If I think about the facts I can see how it was an awful time, but in my heart I don't feel like it was so bad after all. In fact, I don't feel like it was bad at all. I couldn't imagine my life without my beautiful family.

    where do you buy magnesium gel from and any brand you could specifically recommend? Also how/where do you apply it? Do you start applying it just on your arms or something a few weeks before birth? TIA

    Or grab your boobs and nipples to show you how to feed bub and where to place your nipple on bubs mouth to ensure good suckling.

    That subsequent births are not always easier. In fact. ..They can be much harder!
    Also you don't need to actually push to get the head out. When your body is ready it will come out with the contraction no pushing at all. And we're talking a 4.52kg bub born with no tearing at all.
    Wish I'd know this for my first two. So much energy was wasted!
