I'm assuming everyone knows what I'm describing but just in case I'm taking about he burning sensation you get when the baby's head starts to crown...I felt pressure the last time but I'm sure it didn't compare to what it feels like au natural...I had a walking epidural that must not have taken all the way or something because it was a totally different experience than what I had with my first in which I felt absolutely nothing! This time I want to go completely drug free though but the one thing I'm quite frightened of is the dreaded ring of fire! So please give me your honest answers here
With gas and air with my first I thought it was fine. I had nothing at all this time and it was bad, but it was over quickly. There isn't anything you can do at that point so your body just goes with it.
I had a little gas n air but really can't remember the feeling although it must have hurt because I remember saying "that better have been the head or I'm changing my mind about this whole baby thing" MW told me to have a feel and there was her head. About 30 seconds later and 1 massive push and Lex was born.
I don't know that I felt it either time. At least I don't remember it so it can't have been that bad. I am a noisy birther so anyone listening would have thought I was in excruciating pain but it was "working noise" lol. Not that it wasn't painful of course, but I don't remember any particular part of it being especially painful. With my first the pushing was sweet relief after not being allowed to push for two hours it was just exhausting cause it took so long, so I may have been too numb to feel the ring of fire.
Ok I do now remember it with my second but it literally lasts seconds and the memory obviously fades pretty quickly.
Honestly its nothing to be worried about so try not to dwell on it. When you feel it let it motivate you cause you will be sooooioi close to meeting Charlie
With my first (7lb 9oz) I had a 2nd degree tear and just felt a bit of a sting as I ripped.
With my 2nd (10lb 4oz) same again just a bit of a sting, like a Chinese burn, I just had a tear to my perinium that time. Didn't really hurt both times, I had gas and air 1st time and nothing 2nd time xxx
It's not that bad the one thing I remember a friend telling me was remember when you where younger and would hook a finger each side of your mouth and pull a really silly face, do that and pull until it hurts and that's the feeling.
