  • They come in waves that build in intensity and then taper off.

    I got uncontrollable shaking with mine.

  • A stomach ace and a back pain times magnified a billion. It hurts, I had two natural and I epidural. It's a beautiful thing to experience both.

  • Bad cramps! The worst pain for me was the straps they used to hold the monitor things to keep track of the baby's heart rate and the contractions! I wanted to rip them off so bad!! I was trying to claw them off!!
