-that I should have refused the second round of abx (see previous two items)
-that you can get post-partum hemorrhoids even if you didn't have a vaginal birth (YEOW!)

-about BABY BRAIN!!! and that I therefore shouldn't try to balance the checkbook or make major purchases until the baby's at least 7 or 8 months old!
