    No one told me about the bloody show so I thought there was something seriously wrong during labour when that came out.

    No one told me it would feel like I needed to do no.2.

    That birth can be empowering and awesome, that you might want to do it again and again because that 'high' is so good. And that that 'high' can last months and months!

    That you can catch your own baby with *no* experience and there is nothing so amazing as feeling your babys face as they hover between you and the rest of the world

    No one told me that if your waters break, you continue leaking fluid until the baby arrives. I had to wear depends disposable undies and I felt like I was constantly peeing myself!
    Also, no one told me I wouldn't be able use gas as pain relief during the pushing stage!

    That birth can be traumatic and terrifying, that you might have flashbacks to past abuse during it. That no one may know what's going on inside your mind, you will want to scream for help but you won't be able to speak to save yourself. That you will feel so dirty after and all you will want to do is to have a shower and curl up and die.

    Can I just say thank you to all of you for your honesty and humour when talking about all the things no one tells you.
    Some of the things you have mentioned, especially about not immediately bonding/falling in love with bub after the birth and it might take time, that there will be pain afterwards, the #2 during labour factor, are some of my biggest fears.
    Reading threads like this reminds me that sometimes pain/trauma/unexpected things will happen, but generally speaking, it's going to be ok afterwards.
    I'll come back in 4 weeks and add something I wasn't prepared for!

    I thought there was supposed to be a break in the pain between contractions. Nope no relief here! I also didn't know that laboring in the water could slow down progress.

    And bfing was 1000x harder than I anticipated

    That the midwives may put their fingers inside your va jay jay and bum to 'stretch' you, despite you screaming at them to stop. That you may feel raped and violated and powerless.
    Also, the overwhelming love you can feel for your baby...I didn't understand how much you could love someone before giving birth.

    Yes, ring of fire. OH my God...

    Also, that after you birth the head (which I thought was kind of the major milestone that we get to before bubs just slips out) you have to birth THE SHOULDERS.

    Oh, also that stitches may hurt even more (if possible) once they loosen and are about to fall out. Two words: salt baths. Ah-mazing.
