    That milk doesn't come in straight away! Maybe someone did tell me.... but I didn't remember and was shocked that it wasn't until day 4 I actually had any. Or how big my boobs got overnight!

    Nobody told me how WEIRD it would feel to stand up straight for the first time after giving birth. One minute you're waddling around with 4.4kg of baby inside (plus uterus/placenta/etc), a little while later all that is gone and the feeling of your guts dropping back down into place is truly bizarre. Plus your stomach muscles are separated and stretched so you have less core strength, which also feels strange. I just felt so fragile for a few days after having both babies.

    Giving birth makes one appreciate the little things in life:

    * Having a shower
    * Going to the bathroom without crying
    * Sneezing and coughing without weeing one's self
    * Not throwing up in front of strangers
    * Having control of your flatulence
    * Being able to keep one's clothes...and pants on
    * Having time to do hair and makeup
    * The fact that you don't usually have fat rolls on your side
    * Having more than two outfits to wear
    * Metamucil...need I say more?
    * Wearing pants that aren't elasticised
    * Getting out of the house
    * Exercising
    * Wearing clothes - minus the puke stains
    * The body you had before pregnancy
    * The fact you used to be able to do a sit-up
    * Fitting into shoes that aren't your thongs in the middle of winter

    That once you have your catheter removed and go to wee for the first time your muscles have forgotten what to do! You sit there waiting and nothing happens...

    Yes to the after pains, the swollen nethers and waking up to rock hard, Dolly Parton bewbs on day three!

    I was also unprepared for the fact that my third bub (first prem) had giant man testicals! First time I did his cares and saw them I just about fell over!

    Definitely the after pains.
    How hungry I would be afterwards.
    The actual amount of bleeding afterwards. I knew I would bleed but didnt realise how heavy it would be and how long it would last.

    I wasn't told how to deal with toilet things for about a week after dd's vbac. Those of you playing at home who are pregnant- when weeing lean forward and put your palms on the floor. It stops the burning sting of urine on grazes or stitches.
    If you have a sore rectum, don't push your number twos, wait for them to come and then hiss. The hissing works well to gently push it out. Trust me.

    I also didn't know how much let downs would hurt the second time around. For a good two weeks I wanted to punch someone every time I let down.

    That they will threaten to put the catheter back in unless you pee a certain amount

    And that you have to clean the baby's umbilical cord- worst thing ever
