I think what surprised me the most about labor and delivery was actually after I had the baby . They don't always tell you about everything you have to go thru after the baby comes . The bleeding and the pain , especially if you have stitches . The cramping , oh the cramping . The nurse comes and massages your uterus to make sure it is shrinking back down . When you nurse there is a lot of cramping for at least the first few days . The first bowel movement ... well lets just say that is not so fun either !!! The joys of having a baby !!

The intensity of the pain.

The lack of control I had in many of my hospital births - over many things.

The amount of love I felt for my babies.
