I never knew:
-That walking around dialated to 4-5 cms (with dc #3) for a couple of weeks would be such a mind game and such physical discomfort for me.
-About the awful constipation that I went through with all three pregnancies, during my last trimester, would happen even with stool softeners, fiber supplements, ample water intake (ridiculous amounts actually), and a high fiber diet.
-That hospital pads are really THAT BIG
-That I could have such varied birth experiences.
-That you really do have room enough in your heart and enough love for all of your babies after the first baby
-That I would eat a salad, bowl of soup, cheeseburger, french fries, and a milkshake and then turn to my dh (sipping on his milkshake) and ask "Are you going to drink that? If not, I will" :LOL
