  • Ever heard of "The ring of fire"? lol....

    Yes it hurts like hell, but it's so worth it!!

    I had all 3 natural, so if you need anything, just ask!

  • Yes it hurts really bad, but it will be the best pain in your life. After the birth you won't even remember the pain

  • Yes absolutely. I don't think there is one person that would lie about it not hurting. You can opt for pain medications if you like, but there is still going to be pain involved.

  • Do you want the truth? For me yes!! After my first born DD was born. I was a Size:0 & she was close to 9 lbs.#!! I was in labor for a long time! I never felt well after her birth! After my second I was in labor for days!!! I pushed too hard and too soon. I had rips & tears the size of a tennis ball. But this is just me! But your Sweet, precious perfect Baby is worth it! And everyone is different! My births were a long time ago! I'm sure there's better pain control. Best of luck to You!

  • It depends on if you are medicated if you have an epidual it wont hurt at all. I was so numb I couldnt feel my contractions and the second time my legs were numb for a long time. But if you go for natural be ready for the pain and no changing your mind.

  • yes. all birthing experiences are unique and memorable. My first 2 i did natural. I was younger and stronger. (earlly 20`s) the last 3 I did epidurals, and they ended up having to be helped out (suction etc.).. my first 2 did not. good luck! It will go fine.

  • Nope, it just tickles a bit. I started laughing when my vagina ripped down to my butthole.
