If u got bad menstrual cramps before u had kids, did it get better after you had your 1st child?

a lot of women say it's true. i don't see it.

  • After having my first I had no cramps and had light periods, it was nice. After my 2nd though, I was back to the same old same old. Horrible cramps and heavy bleeding. I am not pregnant again and do not know what to expect.

  • No. After two kids, they're just as bad,

  • No, mine are still just as terrible. WAY worse than my labor (I didn't take drugs). They immobilize me for a long time sometimes.

  • Mine got a lot better once I had my oldest DD. I used to get them so bad I would throw up or pass out or both. I definitely compare the pain of those pre-baby menstrual cramps to labor pains. I rarely get cramps anymore. If I do get them, they are mild. Nothing compared to what I used to have.
