  • They're giving you a load of bull. My grandma said that you get your labor pains after when you have a cesearean,but she was ignorant to the facts. My 1st baby hurt more after than the 2nd.

  • I agree with butterflyblue... In my opinion it gets easier with every child, I pregnant with #4... but thats just been MY experience. Every pregnancy and birth are different, there is no way to predict how it will be...
