Any surprises during labor?

Hi ladies, I hope you are all holding your little ones by now or will be soon!  Just curious...we all try so hard to prepare ahead of time for labor...was there anything that took you totally by surprise during your labor/delivery that you didn't expect?  With my first, it was my emergency c-section.  I guess I just assumed I would deliver vaginally and never really thought about the alternative.

Re: Any surprises during labor?

I was really surprised how quickly it all went. I labored at home & didn't realize it.
My surprise was the shakes. I thought I had a fever, but that's what happens when transitioning. I didn't know that at the time.
So I went to the hospital at 4am at 9 centimeters! Surprise!!!
