Just been watching videos of women giving birth and photos. I must say it isn't what I expected and truthfully fascinating, but the crowning really made me feel the pain inside. Maybe TMI but my OH hurts me during sex (even if lube is used). How something small can stretch to that circumference is beyond me. For the one's who have already popped, how would you describe the feeling of it? (Minus the contractions) I was asked to be my sisters birthing partner for when baby #2 was born, but, I opted out due to me not wanting to witness how painful it is without feeling it myself. She was lucky and had 3 hours labour and 8 minutes pushing.
