This wasn't what I was expecting....

Posted by   + Show Post

I need some help -- I am working on a story about all those little not-so-wonderful horrors/secrets about pregnancy, post-partum, nursing and newborns that no one ever talks about  ie cankles, vericose veins, the big ol pads from the hospital, saggy breasts, clothes that will never fit again, colic, loss of romance, etc.

What do you wish you'd known about BEFORE you became pregnant/had a baby?

If you ever need to know how to handle that, run water over everything while you pee. I had to seriously pee in the shower and run water over your lady bits. It keeps it from burning.


Quoting mrswillie:

ripping or sitches down their and the burning that came with peeing!

It's been 16 years since I had my last son. I did learn that with my first. They refused to let me leave the hospital until I went. Finally I used a bottle of very cold water to go pee.

That you can get stretch marks all the way down to your ankles no matter how much expensive stretch mark cream you lather on, it's genetic.
