    I agree with the absolute shock of having a baby. I was in shock for days after DS1.

    That my boobs would leak constantly and breast pads didn't stand a chance.

    The sensation of having a caesarean. The pulling, pushing, yanking... It was just bizarre! Plus the obstetrician and the surgical team just chatting away as if they were down at the pub instead of performing major surgery. I was grateful for that, it calmed me down.

    Feeling really scared as c section at 10am and pains 9pm getting steadily climbing the pain scale and hitting 8 and finally a new nurse at midnight peeled back the plaster from epidural and calling the crash cart for morphine and over dosing me, but who looked after my baby all night nobody I think, luckily hospitals are in lock down over night!!!

    I didn't get afterbirth pains with both of my children!

    I assumed the 2nd csection would be easier recovery but I have found the opposite!
    No one also told me that I would feel like a truck had run over my chest for a couple of days due to the OB pressing down on it during the csection. Awful!

    Oh I just remembered something else. The referred pain after having a caesarean. It's due to air being trapped after surgery. I got it near my shoulder twice. It took my breath away.

    Mine "forgot" to put up another bag of synt up for 2 hours causing my labour to halt, no further dilation, and emerg c section under a general. Not fun!

    The way they push on your tummy to feel your uterus contract
    I had bruises on my tummy it was the most painful part of the birth
    Also that the episiotomy is done with scissors, I thought it would be a scalpel

    Another one. That my stretch marks would look 100 times worse as soon as I'd given birth and take weeks to settle back. My little teeny white marks were all of a sudden massive red craters and looked horrible.
