I was surprised that the most painful part of the whole labor and delivery was afterwards! The first few days of breastfeeding were so painful as Lily had amazing sucking abilities. My nipples hurt so much, they were so red, sore, and they even bled a little. I told my husband they should have given me an epidural for my top half! After my milk came in it was so much better. I was scared I was going to give up on breastfeeding because she made my nipples hurt so bad.

I am also surprised that mothering has come so easily. A lot of things have come naturally, or instinctively.

Also the "no sleep" thing. When I had no children, I thought that I understood, but man it was rough. Now I am used to waking up every 2-3 hours, and it is not so bad.
