#TuesdayTruth: Things I wish someone had told me about "after delivery" and life as a new mom.

I was recently in the office break room with a colleague of mine and the subject of nursing came up. We discussed how shocked we were that it wasn’t as “easy” and “common sense” as the world would have you believe. My colleague talked about being so discouraged after the birth of her first baby and wishing that another mother had been upfront and honest about what to expect so that she would not have felt like she was failing:l. I understood completely and remembered my first time as a mom with Bug, but even the times post delivery of all my kids. There are certainly some things I would have wanted to know prior.

After our conversation was over, I thought about several expecting mothers that I know and how I wished I had the kind of relationship with them that would allow me to share what a I wished someone would have shared with me.

I figured I would do that here and maybe help someone (including them).
