only sitting down was I in pain... (I tore pretty much from hole to hole) and it wasn't even that much, more like a stinking sensation... I would say about a 1 1/2... I was up and walking about an hour after birth (au natural)

Other than the post partum cramping, none really. I have to say though, the cramping can get really bad when you have had a lot of kids. It was worse with my 4th than my 5th though.

None during and about a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10 afterwards.

To keep it simple: you know when people ask you to rate your pain from one to ten?

I now know what ten is.

Not so much. I tore pretty badly, and had bruising that left me walking like a duck. But I had the epidural so I didn't feel anything after. I was so numb, I couldn't even pee. Didn't actually feel anything until the night after. Then I cried and begged for a mirror to see the damage.

Dd- just a sore back
Ds- Hellish contractions for about 2 days after coming home.

Ds was much bigger. I was also carrying extra fluids.

Only when I peed. I barely tore the first time. I didnt have to have an episiotomy.. It was basically like a scratch but holy shit it burned to pee!!

The second two times I was up within an hour cleaning the room, making myself presentable etc. i had all 3 completely natural
