What I have learned so far (ramblings of a new mom)

That it is possible to be peed on and pooped on simultaneously.

That anyone and everyone will give you advice on how to raise your child.

That all those fluids you build up during pregnancy have to come out.....(and yes, i might compare it like a fountain.)

You research all your options, and fill your head will so much knowledge about labor and delivery it might explode but when it comes down to it, flexibility is the most important piece you can carry with you.

That same flexibility will carry with you to raising that baby.

Even though things may not have gone the way you wanted, you are grateful for the experience.

That all those months freaking out about this and that and you instantly have this natural instinct on what to do.

the things you thought were easy, are harder than you thought.

your husband never looked sexier holding your child (even though he has not showered in a day or two, lol)

That you will have an immense love for someone else, and you would do anything to protect it.

That your life will NEVER be the same again (in the best way possible.)

As sick as you were, as uncomfortable as you were, and as much pain as you endured, you are so amazed that your body did what it did.

and at the same time wouldn't change a thing.
