BTDT ladies- what do you wish you had about being pregnant before you experienced it for the first time?

If you've been pregnant before, I'm sure a few things happened during your previous pregnancies that caught you by surprise. I was really surprised by the lack of sleep I got while pregnant. Between getting up to use the bathroom 10 times a night to not being able to get comfortable, I got very little good sleep during pregnancy. I thought the sleepless nights would come after baby arrived!

i wish I had known more about AFTER delivery! Everyone tells you about what to expect during pregnancy,... during labor.. but not AFTER delivery! About the nice uteran "massage" and all that fun stuff. I know its a ways away but still. I tell all my friends the things the books dont tell you! And little tricks to help the labor go smooth.
