    For me labour was the worst pain ever. But I was in labour for 3 full days with no drugs with an overdue poorly positioned baby.

    I do suspect that the paid SO gets from his IBS and bad knee are worse than what I had. A least they are much longer lived pains. I would never want him to go through labour pains. He has enough pain in his life. He doesn't need that too.

    Easy for me to say...I had the "walking epidural" both times. Took all the pain away. The only pain I had was before I got the shot. It was painful but it didn't knock the breath out of me the way gallstone pain did....that was the absolute worst and terrified me because I couldn't DO anything while I was having attacks.

    I ruptured my stitches after DD was born. I tried to stand up from the couch with her in my arms and I just put too much force on my pelvic floor and brrrrrtttt.....8 stitches just blew apart. That hurt. A LOT. And, they couldn`t stitch me up again. That hurt too - walking around with my poor bits all blown apart for days and days. Peeing was no fun and the peri bottle was my only salvation.

    Tearing naturally the second time around with no drugs was less painful than the episiotomy stitches rupturing after DD was born. I never even felt the tear with DS (probably because of the ring o fire I felt instead ). I sure as heck felt the freezing needle for the couple stitches I got with him though!

    And all I could say to the doctor at the walk-in clinic, 5 days post partum, was "I'm sorry, but I'm still bleeding", like all self conscious and $hit that he would think that was gross enough, never mind the torn stitches thing.
