Feel free to add your own, Grads!

~How horrible it really is to throw up 3 times a day, every day.
~What contractions really feel like
~What it's like to have your hips slip while you're walking
~Just how exhausted you really were that first month post-partum (I see pictures of myself from Erin's and Patrick's first months and I look sooooooooooo exhausted)



(((Every time I talk about how pregnancy "wasn't really that bad" my husband tells me "you don't remember, I do, it really was that bad.")))

~How horrible it really is to throw up 3 times a day, every day.Did not throw up at all
~What contractions really feel like. Never had them because I had a c-section
~What it's like to have your hips slip while you're walking. I never noticed this, the most I noticed when walking was the big belly and saying to people "coming thru coming thru lady with a baby"
~Just how exhausted you really were that first month post-partum (I see pictures of myself from Erin's and Patrick's first months and I look sooooooooooo exhausted). I only have 1 picture of me with Alex and that was when he was born, I have no pictures with him until he's 4month old! Dh loves to have his picture taken with Alex but he hates to take pictures of other people

To forget that "ring of fire" when the baby crowns.
To forget just how hard pushing really is.
To forget all the heartache of loss and replace it with amazing happiness where there once was sorrow. I still cry almost every day when I look at Matthew and know how blessed I am.

Forget all the pain after having the baby, all the sleepless night when your lo gives you that big first smile.

How true that is! Especially if that first smile is in the morning after only getting about 2 hours of sleep!

yeah.....I feed Alex every morning before I leave for work, and I love waking him up because he gives me the biggest smile ever, because he knows he's about to get some food

Its so true that you "forget" how hard childbirth is.....I still remember the pain from my stones vividly, but my labor is already kind of a blur and I feel like I could do it again next week.

Those are all totally things I forgot after I has DS(3). - except the m/s, this is my first time experiencing it.

That's why God made kiddies so cute, because it makes you forget the hard times.

For me, it was the AWFUL heartburn that would literally choke me in the middle of the night. (Are any of your suprised that I had heartburn?! LOL!)

I was going to confirm that you had heartburn after seeing your new pics of him!

God lets us forget the feel of warm spit up as it soaks in to your clothing. (I had super spitters...but they were happy spitters, so the doc didn't worry)

And, we forget what it feels like when your cute baby is sitting on your lap and suddenly you leg is warm and wet...I hate when they wet through things.

The look of bread dough stomach after delivering... Uck!

That also works when they're older. You forget all about the terrible twos-y tantrums she's thrown all day when she first says "I love you" before bed.

Yeah, me too, after Cora. One more thing about my body to hate. I was so surprise that I couldn't climb out of my car without pulling myself out because my abs could not do anything.

How about those days where the baby just feels like crying until you want to throw it out the window?

Being sleep deprived to the point you can't handle it. This time I just have keep reminding myself it gets better so quickly (realitively), the first 6 weeks are the hardest, but it's so worth it.

I don't remember feeling any of those things with the boys.
I'm starting to remember my body hates being pregnant and this is the best pregnancy by far.

something i forgot but REMEMBERED the other night while considering if i would get pregnant again...

How when you are pregnant doing simple things like picking up toys and scrubbing the bathtub and even bending over to collect what you just swept up is SO FREAKING DIFFICULT... even SLEEPING totally sucks when you are pregnant..

BUuuuuuut then i started thinking about the first time i felt my girls move.. and the hiccups they would get a few times a day.. and about the intense excitement of labor and delivery ...
.. and heck.. labor isnt to bad the second time around!
