When you were pregnant you heard all the horror stories about giving birth; was it as bad as everyone said?

Had 3 c-sections but the contractions were unbearable had to have a epidural

  • It was worse than the horror stories. I actually got the opposite oh it doesn't hurt. Theres nothing to it. Its so easier. Blah.

  • It wasn't bad at all. My epidural didn't work right, so pushing the baby out was the worse!!

  • no, my sister had me scared to death because she screamed like a dying cow! but when i had my dd i got an epidurl & it didn't work, but giving birth naturally didn't really hurt it was just really uncomfortable

  • Not at all. I had heard horror stories from every possible birthing option, so I just did what was right for me and I loved both of them.

  • Not even close. I had 7 hour total from first inkling of contraction to birth and NO pain meds, plus some pitocin. I wouldn't get pitocin if I had to do it again. I probably would have it at home too.

  • when i had my son it was bad but then i opted for the epidural. then it was beautiful.
    when i had my daughter as soon as i got to the hospital i said give me the epidural. i never felt one hard contraction and i had my daughter in less than four hours and 20 minutes of pushing. it was great.
