  • the stitches did not hurt at all, in my experience. i had an epidural though. it was a little uncomfortable afterward until they dissolved but they gave me remedial stuff for the discomfort.

  • Yes, I had to get cut . . . twice for my first son because he got stuck with only one cut. The stitches didn't hurt at all, but I also had an epidural. But that area was very tender for a long time.
