-How much it hurts to nurse...initially (OUCH!)
-Just how long one can actually go without sleep and still function properly.
-How wonderful it feels to sit on gloves filled with ice in the hospital after giving birth!
-That it actually hurts to fall so in love with your new baby.
-Swelling (enough said)
-That I deserve a pat on the back for successfully nursing Grant and folding an entire basket of laundry simultaneously.
-The smell of my newborn
-The first two weeks are survival mode (I am only two days away from week one)
-That I am already dreading the day when my Mom leaves... :-(
-I absolutely LOVE nursing and the whole newborn stage.
-I was so meant to be a Mommy!!! :-)
***I thought of something I never knew at all***
-Having your tubes tied is double and triple the pain of having a baby...it has kicked my ever lovin' butt from here until Sunday!!!!
