That not everyone can get an epidural in so for two hours your having contractions and being stabbed in the back at the same time (which they didn't get in by the way) and the same thing for the spinal in theatre afterwards. Also the stomach feeling when you first stand up, omg omg, did not expect that. Third day blues sucked! Especially when Bubs had to be in special care due to jaundice (which isn't really that bad but is made worse cause your an emotional wreck lol) I think I missed the ring of fire due to thinking my back passage was falling out for the last hour before crowning lol and even after all this I was saying a few hours before the birth I would do it again. Haha

Nobody told me how difficult breastfeeding would be. Not physically doing it, but emotionally stressed wanting a week for your milk to come in with a screaming newborn, feeling like your somehow doing something wrong. Everyone told me day 2-3, not 7! Thank god for formula top up's and the EBM machine thing you can hire, to get things moving once I was home.
I had no idea I wouldn't remember the first day of my childs lift after having a C/S under G/A. Everyone got to hold him before me, it was utterly heartbreaking. Next time, no visitors until day 2 when I've I'm concious enough to get out of bed & have a shower and have a conversation with someone. Poor ex had to repeat the same question 10 times before I'd respond lol.

Another one to add, nobody told me that I lost a lot of blood during my C/S, I would have loved a blood transfusion thanks!

What a post partum haemorrhage is like and how scary it can be.
Also what's involved when they have to manually remove parts of your placenta/leftover product. It was the most painful and bizarre feeling. My stomach was sore for days, I felt like I'd been hit by a truck.
And that you can get post partum PUPPS, there are no words to describe that itchy hell on earth rash!
