I didn't read a ton of books about being pregnant or having a baby when I was expecting. I didn't want to stress myself out by overloading my head with information. I also relied on my Mom friends. I figured they'd tell my all the important stuff when it came to motherhood. Well...not necessarily.

According to Babble.com, here are 8 THINGS YOUR MOM FRIENDS MIGHT NOT TELL YOU ABOUT MOTHERHOOD:

 

1. Breastfeeding is harder than you imagined.

2. You really won't get a chance to shower much.

3. Fussy babies are more common than you think.

4. It will probably be a while before you're intimate with your husband again.

5. Sleep deprivation can feel like depression.

6. Postpartum depression is very common.

7. Taking care of a newborn can be very boring.

8. Expect your plans to fall through.
