Yes. It really is that painful.
Of course, epidurals usually help (not always), but they result in a lot of nerve damage... so be careful with that, too.
The best thing to remember is this: As SOON as the baby is out -- I'm talking IMMEDIATELY, the pain is gone. Oh, you're sore for a while for sure.... but it's instant --- pain's gone.

I had a friend who had a 6lb baby who was induced, was in labor for 2 hours and pushed for 5 minutes and didn't need any pain meds at all. Then there was me. I was in labor for over 24 hours, pushed for 2.5, my baby was face up which made him almost stuck, the doctor had to reach in with both hands to try to turn him aaaannd he was 9.5lbs. That freaking hurt like hell and the epidural did nothing. The epidural medicine follows gravity and I had to be on my side prior to pushing to keep pressure off of the umbilical cord. That made the pain meds go all the way to one side. Hence, I felt every bit of my 9.5lb baby come out as well as the stitches afterward. It all depends on your body and your baby. Everyone is different!
