Despite your preparations, there are just some things you don’t realize until you have a baby. Having a baby is one of those things that you have to experience for yourself; it can’t be explained to you. Every baby is different and every experience is different. I know, because I was totally shocked with some of the things that I didn’t know until I had a baby. Just to give you a head's up, here is a look at some of the things you don’t realize until you have a baby yourself.

For me, it was a lack of sleep that I had never realized before, and that sleep deprivation really impacted my life for quite a while. But, you do learn to adjust after a while – and it does get better.
