That about 3 months after the birth your beautiful lustrous pregnancy hair would start to malt, and seriously malt! I thought I would have no hair left!
How time consuming BFing is... How crappy it can go no matter what you try how painful it is & how sometimes your milk won't come in till day 5/6.

How ever many pads and granny undies you think you need - double it.
Pain from contractions may be felt in your back, not your stomach. And they can be back-to-back with no "rest period"
Your feet may swell after childbirth, even if they didn't during pregnancy

And as others have mentioned breastfeeding HURTS so bad for the first few weeks/months.... I was told by the middies if it hurts you're not doing it properly. Umm no it just really really painful.
Also that whilst you anticipate a baby will be hard OMG the first 6 weeks with a newborn was a living hell.
And yes I was a blubbery mess thinking WHAT HAVE I DONE?!? on day 3.

That no matter how terrified you are of birth and the possible interventions, when the time comes you switch into another gear and stop worrying about yourself. Getting the baby out safe is no. 1.
The constant leakage of waters after the first big gush. It just keeps coming & coming!
The mild contractions when BFing and feeling like you're 'squirting' yet even more fluid.
That a BF session takes up to an hour every feed.
The amount of noise a newborn can sleep through. Ringing bells, nurse call beepers, chatty visitors, other crying babies, everything!
How sad I'd feel when DH had to leave hospital at night.
No matter how many BH threads you read or episodes of One Born Every Minute you watch, something will happen that you're not prepared for!

Agree with ALL of the above, spesh waters breaking. Mine went in a huge way then I leaked continuously. I had another big gush when I got to hospital, followed by more leaking til birth.
That They put a tablet up my butt after birth!!! To help with the swelling.
That you can still move when you have an epidural.

That sometimes babies dont cry when they're born. DS3 was born not breathing so was taken to the other side of the room for some assistance and I was screaming for someone to tell me he was ok after a couple of minutes cos he still wasnt crying.
Turns our after some oxygen he was completely fine and felt no need to cry, he just lay in my arms looking up at me for a couple of hours until he had his first shots and then we heard him cry for the first time.

That not every baby comes out crying straightaway. DS didn't and I panicked but he was absolutely fine! Eyes wide open and alert, looking around like 'WTF just happened?' He only cried very briefly when the nurse went to give him a bit of a rub down.
