  • Hemorrhoids! Make sure you pre-register at the hospital. Make sure your doctor knows what you want. By the 9th month you will feel like nothing but a host to the (alien) baby inside you. Get your sleep before you can't. People will think it's ok to give you unsolicited advice, and sometimes try to touch you! That's all I got for now.

  • That my husband would need two major surgeries six weeks and six months after DD was born. It would not have changed my mind about having her, but it would have been easier for me to handle if I had been more prepared instead of finding out when I was 7/8 months along.

  • That I would end up with a C-section and still feel like a completely and total failure for not being able to deliver vaginally even after 7 months. Oh and having no desire for sex whatsoever.

  • That having a premature rupture of membranes was no big deal and I could have had a homebirth without any problems instead of spending 3 long boring weeks in the hospital followed by a complication-free birth.
