  • I had no pain in my 9th month and recovery was easy and short for me both times after vaginal delivery.

  • OMG month 9 of pregnancy!!!! Please someone put me out of my misery! Don't get me wrong...yes, labor hurts like a bitch, but then you get an epidural and it's over lol....this month has sucked on so many levels and there is like NOTHING I can do about it except just wait it out...I know I'm probably the only one going to say month 9 but DAMN this sucks! I can't WAIT to start feeling REAL contractions...not these damn Braxton Hicks that just get my hopes up only to crush them a few minutes later lol

  • I felt fantastic throughout my entire pregnancies ... so I'd have to say labor is worse (though the recovery for my vaginal delivery was a piece of cake ... recovery from my c-section was a whole other story).

  • Labor isn't really that bad, I've had three natural births. Month 9 was way worse than labor or recovery.

  • Each pregnancy was different for me. With my oldest, pregnancy was AWESOME! But recovery was horrid! There were days I literally couldn't sit or walk or even stand because of the pain, and that was with pain killers... Now with my third, I had such bad back and hip pain during pregnancy I had to use a cane to help me get around, and never needed a single Tylenol during recovery...

  • recovery from my c-section is a pain

  • i would say month 9 of pregnancy just because it only took like two weeks for my stuff to heal down there lol.
