stories and ideas of what is "easy" and what was "hard". Amazing to me how
different everyone is.


No kidding. I'd rather go through childbirth than
have dental work done, even with anesthesia (for the dental
work, not the childbirth ;-)


see, i've had root canals, and extractions, and the pain was nothing
compared to childbirth ( for me

I'd rather go through childbirth
than have the flu.


you're crazy !!

Childbirth isn't easy or painless by
any stretch, but there are worse things (like being pregnant
for "nine" months ;-)


Now see, again I disagree.
I loved the whole 9 months - what fun ! But that last bit ... brr ..
scary !!

but I found it easier to deal with than the first stage of
labor. At least there was something to *do* about it (which
I apparently did fairly well, since it went pretty quickly
all three times ;-)



Ahhhhhh, so different!! I found pushing insanely painful and difficult. I
thought, I hoped pushing would be easier than dealing with the first stage
of labor! I had transition-like contractions for hours. During pushing,
though, I almost felt delirious with the desire to escape my body. I don't
think I was unprepared either or had completely unrealistic expectations.
It's been something I've had a very difficult time dealing with actually. I
was quite sad after my last delivery wondering what I did wrong, why it was
so painful again. I really would like to have one more baby, but I do find
the idea of facing labor/delivery again quite daunting. I actually feel a
little panic at the thought, and it really saddens me. My last baby took
about 30 minutes to push. Not very long to many, but it was the most
agonizing sensation I have yet to experience, and I just don't understand
why nor do I ever want to experience it again. I hear so many women say how
childbirth has a purpose, and it doesn't hurt as bad as stubbing your toe,
etc. and I believe them. I hate sharing my story because I feel like I'm
sharing one of those horror stories that people hate to hear.

Default Pain


To me, the pain of childbirth was like the worst menstrual cramps I have
ever had. I've had some bad ones where I've passed out. The problem is, when
I had cramps I'd take something and lie down...not curl up, pull my head up
and push!!

The amnesia is setting in, I have already forgotten some of the pain. But
next time I am going to be just as adamant about wanting an epidural!
