What Surprised You Most About Labor and Delivery? Twitter Round-up

What do you mean I have just four weeks to go? Didn’t I just pee on a stick—or two—and see that double pink line? Now I have to think about actually delivering this baby?

I cannot believe just how close we are getting to the day I head to the hospital to give birth for the second time. It has me thinking about that whole process of labor and delivery. Of course, the only thing I can really base that experience on is the one I went through with my first son over four years ago. I had my birth plan in hand went we went to the hospital that Friday afternoon in March of 2007, but of course things didn’t turn out at all like I had expected.

My no-epidural-natural-childbirth plan turned into a your-water-has-been-broken-too-long-emergency-cesarean-section. Pretty much the total opposite of what I had my mind set on my labor and delivery experience turning out like.

I’m not even sure what to expect this time around.

If I was a betting gal, I would put money on the labor and delivery experience being full of surprises for everybody who goes through it.

Instead I asked my Twitter buddies about their experiences.

This is what they said was the one thing that surprised them most about labor and delivery.
