    It doesn't seem to be looking good for someone that's a bit of a wimp when it comes to pain. :cry:

    I must be in the minority as it was nowhere near as bad as I expected and only got what I would call really painful for the last hour. But then that last hour was a bit of a blur tbh. Just like bad period pains :)

    Oh hun, try not to worry too much about it. I am one of the worlds worst when it comes to pain and to begin with I was really dreading the thought of labour.
    I have however heard such a lot of positive stories from people since and there is stuff for the pain now. I just think back to what it must have been like years ago when there was no pain relief at all, that makes me feel a lot better.

    When you've had your gorgeous little bubba, post your birth story, we would love to hear about it. I bet you say that you would definately do it again.

    Best of luck :hug: :hug: :hug:

    WAY MORE painful than expected. Sorry but they really were :shock: I am a wimp when it comes to pain though and I was IV induced, so hoping it won't be so bad next time (I'll keep telling myself that! :lol: )

    Saying all that I would do it again and then some to have my baby boy.

    I had some good advice which got me through all three labours.

    Just keep saying to yourself: Now it's started, thre's no way back, and each contraction brings me closer to meeting my LO.......

    It's such a hard question to answer.

    I put worse than expected, but really that's cause you CAN'T expect it, there's no sensation like it.

    But you'll cope with it better than you expect too, I bet :hug:

    I agree with Minxy, there's no other pain like it :? It was worse than I expected, sorry I dont want to scare you but contractions really hurt. Wont stop me having another baby though and I did it with only gas and air for 8 mins :wink:
