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.0
