These are all good ones, especially that you won't get any sleep- at least not regular sleeping at night. I found I just had to nap with the baby, 'cause he was up so much during the night. Little night owl!!
We found that our son had a "fussy period" of the day- I think it was between 7-8pm, when he would cry no matter what. We tried EVERYTHING- rocking, nursing, daddy, swings, slings, singing, vacuum cleaner... you name it!! We eventually just basically gave up & I'd take him upstairs to his nursery and sit with him and try to nurse him and sing to him until he either calmed down or went to sleep.
Also, although our DS didn't cry at all in the hospital, the first night home with him, he started screaming in the middle of the night and wouldn't be consoled (or nursed). As a first time mom, I would probably have ended up with him at the ER had my mother not been there to tell me he was OK after we checked him over and tried everything. Mom massaged him with plain Vaseline lotion, and he finally went to sleep. I think maybe he had dry skin, since he was 2 weeks "late", a C/S, and they bathed him vigorously right after the birth. Keep Vaseline or some other good unscented, non-medicated lotion on hand, and don't panic!
And, your love for your child grows with each passing day, even though it often seems impossible that it could. He'll get cuter every year, even though you'll swear he can't get any cuter than this moment. And you could easily remain in awe at the things they do and say every day.
