"I didn't have any drugs with either of my births -- and my second was a 10 pounder! Honestly, it was intense, but not that bad."
Me, too! And also 10-pounds! (First was 9-pounds!) But their sizes were irrelevant...
I wanted to say that how a mama perceives pain has a LOT to do with her mind. Her expectations, her fears. Those with more confidence and help (the continuous support, not coming-and-going kind of help), have a better chance at coping and reducing their pain.
There are really a lot of ways to deal with this and you can do it. You can say, "I did it and it wasn't that bad!" too!! :-D
