A new survey reveals that more than two-thirds of new moms aren't prepared for how stressful it is to have a baby. And not surprisingly, 41 percent describe the first six weks after giving birth as a "whirlwind," while another 47 percent say they are "happy but utterly exhausted." So what do women miss the most when adjusting to life as a mother? Sleeping in, followed by uninterrupted nights with their partner. Being able to be spontaneous and change plans at the last minute came in third, while an uninterrupted conversation with a friend and being able to eat out stress-free completed the top five. Please feel free to add to this list.
