I'm due in April with my second daughter....can't wait! And, well, I've been reminiscing about the birth of my first daughter in October of 09. I've been trying to remember what labor was like completely, what caused me to fall apart during transition, and just everything about the birth. It was a wonderful natural birth in a hospital....this time I'm hoping to do even better. One thing I just thought of though was that after she was born, my body felt like I had been hit by a truck for about a week. Literally hit by a truck. My entire body felt bruised and broken. Also, I honestly couldn't shit for a week. Nobody told me to expect that! Should I be expecting the same thing this time around? Sorry this was so rambling.
