Did you learn more about yourself, about your family or, like me when I never realized how much love you can feel for your new baby.
I ask this because my own Mom past away when I was small, so I never got to learn a lot of parenting skills. I was also the youngest child and did not baby sit as a teen, so I had a lot to learn.

I had two big surprises. One was how instinctual it was for me. Taking care of my son was so natural for me from the second he was born. Yes, there were hard times and stressful moments, but over all, its all been so natural and he's 2 1/2 now. And my second surprise was how crazy my hormones were AFTER the baby. Not a post-partum depression, just crazy mood swings. I was expecting more stuff to happen during the pregnancy, but my husband and I both agree, my couple little "moments" during were nothing compared to the first few weeks after he was born.

because i come from a huge family, taking care of a baby was very natural for me. i had been changing diapers, making bottles, and all that for as long as i could remember. i "mothered" my nephew from birth - age 3, because my sister was in the military. i even home schooled on line so i could be with him day and night. the biggest shock for me was the way my body changed. everyone knows about weight gain and stretch marks, but no one bothered to tell me that my boobs would end up looking like two fried eggs pinned to my chest, or they would end up a full cup size different from each other.
