What part hurt the most


This is just for fun really just being curious as obviously It's matter of opinion but with my first I had an epidural so wouldn't know with my second birth I had nothing at all and would say that the pushing hurt the most...most of my friends say contractions hurt most but what do you ladies think?

Neither contractions, nor pushing, nor crowning was particularly painful. Intense, but not painful, but maybe uncomfortable. What hurt the most for me was the stupid cervical exam I shouldn't have consented to (just for the to tell me what I already knew - that I was fully dilated and starting to push) and getting a few stitches for my tear. That wasn't nice at all. Otherwise, labour itself was totally manageable and not really 'painful'. Had a completely natural birth with just a TENS and natal hypnotherapy.

I didn't find contractions too bad until about 8-9cm. The last bit (transition) was really tough with contractions 1 minute apart and lasting a full minute. Luckily it's also the shortest part, and for me only lasted a half hour. I actually prefer pushing, since at least you're able to DO something and feel in control.

The contractions that followed after my water was broken hurt the most (and I tore 4 times). I had no epidural or pain relief.

4 cm I was in agony. I envy these births where people didnt really feel a thing. Mine where very intense. Contractions in top of each other near the end. My doula said how intense it was.
