shamelessly stolen from February
i had no idea you bleed for 6 weeks postpartum :eek:
i had no idea some women vomit through childbirth, i for one vomited after EVERY contraction even with all the anti-vomiting medicine they were giving me
i realized its possible to tear, but i NEVER had thought about the weeks it would take to heal, not being able to sit on anything hard, feeling like all my insides would fall out when i walk. I basically thought you had the baby and that was it! i had no idea there was any "recovery" involved.
i didn't realize you can actually SEE your baby moving through your belly as you get further along in your pregnancy, pretty cool! i would get this huge lump in my side when luke stretched him bum out
