the burning when you pee varies from person to person, your area is sensitive with usually open wounds and the acid in the pee makes it burn. But i tore pretty bad(couldnt feel it though) and it didnt burn when i peed. The epidural hurt but i'm one of the few who didnt get a good nurse to do the epidural..i think he may have hit a nerve. Lke i said i'm one of the FEW.  pushing didnt hurt just a little pressure. afterwards i was quite sore but they gave me some meds to help. i had been imagining that day since i found out i was pregnant but once you see your baby..its a whole diff. thing then you would have ever thought.

It was a breeze! I went to the doctor for a normal check up at 37 weeks.. They said my fluid was low so I was going to be admitted the next night and friday morning be induced.. Well 3 am the labor started on its own.. 7 am got the epidural at 6 cm. 10 am started pushing 10:39 baby Bristol was here... 5lbs 13oz.

I had a c-section and was very pleasant compared to my thoughts about it. The recovery was HELL because I thought I was a badass and didn't need pain meds. I was very wrong. Take the meds. Lol that's if you have a c-section.

lol, of course it's painfful, but its not unbarable. after wasnt bad for me the first time, but i rested a lot. i had a very angelic LO who slept thru the night almost instantly and hardly ever cried. i dreaded having to poop, lol. I just didnt want to do it knowing I had stiches. But it happened and I lived, lol.

I tore pretty bad, but I think it was because my doctor was rushing me so much. (There was another woman about to give birth about the same time as me). I hate my OB for that.

My doctor also just pulled my placenta out immediately after I delivered, when they are supposed to just let you deliver it naturally. (TMI, sorry.) Which hurt like no other.

I was also in severe pain "down there" for at least 3 weeks after I had my daughter, because of how bad I tore. I couldn't sit right for at least 2 weeks, and it took me at least 5-10 minutes just to sit down/get up, and to get in and out of bed.

I also had intense bleeding for 6 weeks after delivery, soaking through probably 10-12 pads per hour ( I think from my doctor pulling out placenta), for probably 4 weeks.

Besides my doctor being horrible and all the pain, it was a wonderful experience giving birth to my daughter!
