For me last time the after pains whilst breastfeeding were awful! The labour part wasn't so bad at all.

First time the crowning-ouch!

I had a natural birth with my second and it was the best experience I could've asked for, the worst part was the contractions, it was a relief the push! I had an episiotomy which didn't hurt me at all believe it or not even after, the healing was great! I took raspberry leaf tea and I took evening primrose oil pills vaginally, which I think helped everything a lot!!!

With my first it was the contractions, with my second after pains, pushing was very quick with both I barely remember.

But after pains oh my god. I had no pain relief with my youngest, I don't remember screaming just got it done, but when I got an after pain for the next few days I used ibuprufen, TENS, hot water bottle and was on all fours screaming in pain. My karma for quick labours! Would give birth again in a heart beat, I don't want to experience even one after pain ever again. Not trying to scare anyone I seem to a freak not met many people that experienced them quite like me, I got them with my first (not as bad) which is unusual.

If you have already had a baby then expect your second labour to go much faster. Out of all my friends on their second babies, all had labours under 5 hours and several under an hour! The most painful part of second labours is the rapid dilation from 5cm-10cm. My 2nd labour was fast and the contractions just before my body started to push were horrifically painful but the second my body started pushing it was such a relief.

The ring of fire didn't bother me that much. I still remember the sympathetic look on the MWs face, saying "it hurts so much doesn't it" I said "no it doesn't hurt, just stings". I was just so relieved that the awful pressure on my back had gone that a bit of stinging didn't seem like a big deal. I'm sure it's a lot worse for some ladies though

That's quite scary. My first labour was 3.5hrs total, and I dilated to 8cm extremely quickly and had to start pushing at 8cm. It would've been quicker if she hadn't have been back to back. Good job I want a home birth for #2

That's a good plan! My first was 4 hours and my second was less than an hour, I planned a HB too but the MW was late! But it was fine, would have been worse of I tried to get to the hospital.

Well considering I had no signs of labour until I woke up to my waters breaking, (we got to the hospital 45mins after that and I was 8cm and pushing), I think that's definitely a possibility!!
