    Hmmmm…. with less than a week to my due date this might have not been the best thing to read! Actually, I was aware of most of the things but the way they are described makes me a little terrified.  I did not know about the after-poop. My main fear about poop, was pooping during delivery….. I had no idea the terror that happens after birth.

    I think it’s time for me to head to the store to pick up some prune juice and all-bran!

    @Romantigua:  I’m also a scaredy cat! Haha so you eased my fears a bit. 🙂 Thank you!!! I’m glad things have gone well for you… I hope to be so lucky! 


    @KatyElle:  You totally made me feel better. 🙂 I keep telling myself, SO many people have multiple children… It absolutely must be worth it?! Haha. And that’s true, I’ve heard everyone’s experience is different. I think I am scarred because so many ladies who I’m close to have had horrible experiences with childbirth/post-partum issues. Maybe I’ll be the lucky one! Wink

    I read this yesterday and I keep thinking about it.  I told Fiance last night that I’m not having kids anymore- he has to do it….

    WHY THE F*$% DON’T THEY TELL WOMEN THIS STUFF?  Lochia?  Had never heard of it.  Dear God.
