My name is Jenn and I'm new to the justmommies boards. My husband and I are expecting our first child (boy) May 10th.

I wish someone had told me how truly long 40 weeks is! I feel like this pregnancy has gone on FOREVER!

Hi Jenn! Welcome, and congrats!

I wish I had been better prepared for what my body would feel like post-partum. I never really thought about what it would be like to try to scoot around, position myself for feeding, and stand up with a very sore crotch and both hands on baby. Not so easy.

Also, I wish I had read up on managing babies' sleep before actually having Max. I've developed some habits with him that I wish I hadn't.

Who's here this month? Present!
Preggo? Yep, due Aug 21
Have a baby?? Yep, I hope you guys don't mind me crashing, but my son is going to be 3 in August
What is one thing you wish you were told either about pregnancy or baby? This is a tough one. I wish I had known that there were options instead of antibiotic if you are diagnosed with Group B Strep. I don't know that I would've been able to use the other options (Hibiclens or a garlic regimen), but I would've liked to at least know about it. Needles make me anxious, and knowing that I would need one when I went to deliver really stressed me out.

I'm here! I'm Emma, Mummy to two daughters - Gabrielle (4) & Emersyn (8.5mo). One thing I wish I'd been told about having a child? That no matter how terrible a day you have, when they are asleep it all goes away & you can't help but watch them sleeping & smile because of how cute they are

My name is Kendra. DH and I had our fist on Feb 17th. It's been a struggle so far and I wish someone would have told us how to stop the crying (both baby's and mine)!!
