Re: OUCH!!!! omg is it really that bad???

your uterus is probably stretching - and that video is why I want to have a c-section LOL - this is my first pregnancy too - and I am NOT looking forward to the delivery.

PS how far along are you? I am 10.5 weeks and I still get the discomfort thing in lower abdomen - I think its quite normal for a long time.

Re: OUCH!!!! omg is it really that bad???

As for the cramps, how far along are you? I am about 18 weeks and I get pulling campy type pains on and off. A girl i work with is about 34 weeks and still has this happen from time to time. Those are basically ligament and uterus pains as it is growing. If it is not accompanied by bleeding or severe pain you should be fine. You can always call the Drs ofc and ask but it sounds like they might not be very helpful.
Happy pain-free delivery!!! (hopefully )

Yeah it may be painfull but look at what you get when its over a lil bundle of happieness.. All the pain will be worth it.. but I am hoping the drugs will help out a little.. I have watched all those shows b4 but I look at it in a positive light because postive out weights negative..

C sections aren't always so easy either! The pain afterwards can be very horrible! Either way you'll probably experience pretty extreme pain!

Re: OUCH!!!! omg is it really that bad???

I just did it medication free basically on the 26th of july lol, hell yeah it hurt. Not sure if you read my birth story or not, but with my dd, I got a epidural and I did not feel a thing. My ds however was another story, I had 2 epidurals and neither worked, I am just glad he came very fast, 3 pushes and he was out. I would not want to go through that again. The doc who gave me the epidural said that in his 20 yrs of doing this, he never had it happen 2 times in a row, yippeeeee for me lol. Anyway, once the baby is born, the pain is worth it and you forget all about it pretty much. good luck with the rest of your pregnancies.

Re: OUCH!!!! omg is it really that bad???

Looking at those birth videos, I'm just happy that my head is up this end and can't see what is going on down there.... During labour if I get handed a mirror to see what is happening I think I'll throw it at someone... heheheee.... Just watching a delivery makes me feel queezy, I can only imagine what I'll feel like if I knew it was me I was looking at.... that perinium gets a hammering huh! (wince/cringe)
