Yeah, I peed a little while doing dishes recently. I had to go, but I only had a few more dishes left and thought I could wait. Unfortunately the warmth and sound of the water gave me no choice. Ugh!

The thing that surprised me most was the post-partum bleeding. No one told me about that until I visited my sister in the hospital after having her first daughter. At that point, I had just gotten pregnant with Lily and was totally not looking forward to the bleeding. The best invention ever was the ice pack maxi pad. I loaded up on those things at the hospital so I could have some at home.

I have a theory that if they mentioned all these less than glamorous side effects of pregnancy in middle and high school health classes, there would be a whole lot fewer unplanned teenage pregnancies.
