Any "no one warned me about that!!!" things you can think of? I always feel more comfortable about something when I know as much as possible, so share away.
My main advice is that as soon as you can, get up and walk. My recovery was rough the first time because I didn't know about the walking and also, keep up on your meds. My recovery the second time around was easier since I was up walking as soon as they let me and by the second week out, I was just taking the prescription Ibueprofen. If you are a larger woman pre-pregnancy, you run the risk of the incision splitting open a little bit (no one warned me about that); so just be careful!
