  • That my breasts would swell up to 5 times their size so I couldn't even put my arms down by my sides, and they hurt like heck! Breastfeeding for me was no fun at all.

    I also wish I had been told that baby girls have vaginal discharge for awhile after birth. I thought something was terribly wrong with my firstborn daughter! With my second two daughters I expected it.

    I wish someone had told me to ignore old-wives tales - most of them are useless. I learned to follow pediatrician's orders and go with my gut, or motherly, instinct.

  • Yes the first poop my baby made no one told me that it would be black and sticky! So I thought something was wrong with her and so I thought she was going to die....

  • Hmm, the only thing I can think of is that I wasn't prepared for was throwing up every day for the entire pregnancy.

    Everything else I read about and was prepared for.
