Girls, What does giving birth feel like?

Seeing how I will never experience what it really feels like, could any of you describe how it feels whether it's a C-section or vaginal?

  • Each experience is different and even more different with each person. You will not get the same response over and over. I have had three vaginal births and one c-section. All had to be induced with pitocin which makes the pain even greater. With the first child, I ripped from ying to yang because the dr thought the baby was small enough not to cut me. The contractions of all of my deliveries were very painful. The second child was the easiest. I had contractions for three days straight before going to the hospital. I was told that the labor was going very slow and it would be another 3 days or so before I would have him. I was already worn out and couldn't take it anymore. The contractions were bearable until they gave me the meds to speed it up and popped my water bag. My third child was way past her due date, so she had to be pushed along as well. I held out as long as I could without pain meds, but my blood pressure dropped from the pain and made me dizzy/sick. My fourth child was the most complicated. He was also supposed to be a vaginal delivery, but his umbilical cord was in the way. As soon as my water broke, his head came down onto the cord and cut off circulation. He had no heartbeat. I had to be brought into the operating room for an emergency c-section. Unfortunately, I had no drugs in my system and the dr had to cut me open as the anesthesiologist was trying to pump them into me. I felt everything. The drugs finally kicked in right as I felt them pull him out of my stomach. I heard the dr say, "he crashed" right before I passed out. Recovery was hard and took longer than the rest. Some women have a high pain tolerance and will say it wasn't that painful. I am not one of those women. It hurt like hell. Delivery is easier for some women than others. And, each delivery for one person will be different.

    • Pitocin is complete hell.

    • @SpicedPumpkin it sure is! My kids gave me such a hard time that it had to be used for all of them. I should have known then that they would be stubborn and feisty. Lol!

    • Omg you are a trooper! I only did it once, I can't imagine going through that again! Kudos to you 😳

  • Imagine someone taking a knife and shoving it up your d**k, twisting it around, yanking it out, and then doing it again and again. Oh, wait, that's cramps...

  • C- section.. Besides having a freakishly large needed inserted between your vertebrae and it stings like hell for a bit, I couldn't tell much. After the first 24 hrs when you are required to get up and walk for the first time, well it sucks. You just had your lower abdominal muscles cut apart and then restitched, and staples on the outside. You feel the staples tugging your incision. And the underwear they put on you don't help any. The mesh fabric sticks to the staples when the outside gauzing, cotton bar and tape is removed. So getting up is hard and a little bit pain comes with it. That is why they suggest to bring a small pillow with you. By putting the pillow over your gown where your incision is at, the pressure and the support from the pillow helps getting up.
    After the first 48 you are required to have a b. m.
    Once again the support from the pillow helps as you are very constipated even with stool softeners so leaning forward against the pillow helps with this. By the third day you get your staples removed with a pair of surgical scissors that had a flat looking edge. They slid that edge under and snip the staple. You can feel it pulling your incision. It feels like they are going to rip you back open. But with sutures on the inside you're alright. After that you are free to go home. No sex for 6 weeks.. ( that didn't work, lol) and no tampons which sucked. And you cannot lift nothing more then your baby. I had to have a c section but I was really hoping for a natural birth. Obviously that didn't work out as planned. Lol babies and birth is unpredictable.
    Minus having to have a blood transfusions, I would go through all the pain again just too see that precious baby smile. My son is 5 but I still remember that week Like it was yesterday. Pregnancy and child birth weather c section or natural is beautiful, worth the pain, and a do it all over experience.
    Hope that helped.

  • It's not as bad as some people make it out to be. I've given birth three times and each labour went well and two out of three births I did it naturally, meaning no drugs whatsoever so I felt every thing. It's hard to explain how it feels but the worst part is when you are pushing the baby out and the head is crowning , there's a burning sensation. It's called the "ring of fire" and it will be the most painful part. The feeling of having to push when you are not allowed to yet is very excruciating as well.

    • Everyone experiences something different. Some endure more pain than others and some have a higher tolerance for pain. A friend of mine has five boys. Each birth was different. Two were done via waterbirth and natural. Three were done in the hospital. One of those was induced and she said the pitocin made that birth extremely painful. Of the five, she had to have an epidural for two of them because the pain was different and more severe. She's a strong woman who prefers to do everything as natural as possible.

  • I'm thankful to tell you that i don't know, but i have an idea of what it must feel like at least...
    But maybe by the reactions of these dutch guys (go Netherlands!✊✌) you'll be able to judge?

  • You can actually experience the pain of childbirth if you want. Look it up, other men have been hooked up by wiring that sends electric signals to the stomach that make the muscles painfully cramp. There's a couple videos of men doing this as a joke, I highly recommend it 😉😅

  • As my biology teacher put it 'like shitting out a water melon' I've always thought her knowledge was a bit off...

  • I've never had kids so I wouldn't know. But I heard that it's the most painful thing ever despite my sister said when she had my nephew, she was all calm and relaxed and she felt nothing

  • My mother had me through C-section because my position was reversed. She said it was less painful than vaginal birth when she had my older brother. I guess it depends on the difference of pain tolerance.

    • C section they take out your intestines to get through to the uterus. And cut through layers of muscle. Way longer recovery time from c sections

  • Painful i'm sure.
