What things surprised you about the postpartum period?

The after pains and soreness surprised me. I do not know what I was expecting but I was not expecting that much discomfort for some reason.

    Not too much surprised me until Grace.. Grace I sat and rested just like I had been, but I had so much energy my husband nearly had to tie me down to get me to rest so I could catch up on missed sleep.

    That surprised me too and the soreness of breastfeeding...I struggled with latching baby on correctly.
