I'm guilty of having preconceived notions about things before and during pregnancy. I was sure I felt a certain way about certain things, but post delivery I'm not so sure.
1. I definitely underestimated how difficult having a newborn would be. I knew it would be hard, but am surprised by how much harder it is than I expected.
2. I thought I would want to be a SAHM. I have to return to work for financial reasons, so it's a moot point, but I find myself actually looking forward to going back.
3. DH and I always discussed trying for two children, possibly even three. Now, I feel scared about the prospect of having another. I love my DD and I'm not sure if I'm just overwhelmed by the newness of this all, but I'm not so sure I want to do this again.
Are you surprised by any postpartum feelings you're having? Or have any longstanding feelings that you've had changed?
