  4. Your “area” changes. Could be for the better, or not.
  5. Breastfeeding is a whole other ball game. So sore.
  6. You cannot predict the size of your baby.
  7. Things that worked for others may not work for you.
  8. The “letdown” of your milk can sting and the sting may not go away. Leakage happens too.
  9. Energy boost (a good one)!
