What did you wish you knew before becoming a mother? Before labor? After labor?

peeing hurts as well, you can hold off poop for awhile but peeing you have to do every couple hours

Can't think of anything off the top of my head. I read pretty much EVERY baby book in the library while I was pregnant, so i felt very prepared.

Maybe that you really don't need ALL the stuff that you think you need the first time you go to register. Like a mirror you can attach in the back seat so you can see your rear facing child. We could never get it properly attached so we never used it.

I agree. I bought sooo much crap I never used. Like the gorgeous $300 changing table I bought, I probably used it twice. Now its just storage shelves lol
