I experienced a lot of pain during labor with my first child. I was 18, alone, and scared. I needed oxygen and my blood pressure monitored constantly. I was a trooper though.
I don’t remember being in pain with my second child, but I remember my ex being there and how much better I felt about the entire situation. I was ready for Boy 2.
I can’t even begin to describe the pain of childbirth when using no pain reducers/blockers/whatever. The lady who did my epidural did it wrong, and I experienced a natural child birth. After, the entire left side of my body swelled up like a balloon.
This morning Baby Girl woke up. I was still incredibly tired, so I bent down to soothe her back to sleep. I thought someone had stabbed me. I am in so much pain! I can’t bend over at all, I can hardly sit up. It’s not as bad as child birth, but it’s close.
