Awful, my lower back was in excruciating pain like it was breaking in half, it's actually indescribable, definitely like my horrible period pains but extreme with the back pains added on top if that makes sense x

Pure unrelenting agony over and over again. Keep in mind I was induced and my water broke naturally so it all started really fast and intense. Lol. Imagine you have the absolute worst stomach cramps of your life, the ones that make you writhe or double over. Add in intense period cramps. Also a charley horse that bunches up your back as well as your already cramping abdomen. Then add fire in your hips and then imagine your butt is breaking in half It would last two minutes but feels like its been an hour. But then PURE RELIEF between contractions. Even if it was only for twenty seconds, you feel so much relief you forget to dread the next one. That is what it felt like for me, at least. I don't know why I felt the need to document it for the baby book, but that is pretty much what I had written down later that night lol.

I TGI k the majority of women def know when they are in labour. It wasn't even just the contractions (mine were all in my hips, I desperately wanted to walk through them as it had helped but then had to be monitored through the remainder of my labour - horrific). But when you are in labour I felt it was quite a mind blowing experience, something else comes over you. I cried in pain, but for me I felt kinda out of body and a bit in awe/shock.

Good luck it is truly amazing and I cannot wait to go through it all again - meeting my precious boy for the first time was immense - I will never get over that

Xx

to be honest I can;t remember that well - the only well I can describe it is like my uterus was contracting - I guess it was like period cramps that came and went until my waters broke - then that was it the pain became more intense. I knew something was happening - which was my worry that I wouldn;t know!!!! but rest assured you just know

I have to say I agree - yes it was painful but it was an intense feeling more than painful painful if that makes sense - and it was an amazing experience at the same time. I am normally a total wimp but I just got on with it. Even when I was told I couldn;t have any pain relief as it was too late I just said to myself well just get on with it. I would do it again definitely.
