    For me it's the best bit..... It means its nearly over , ha ha ha! Really though I didn't even feel myself tear as the contractions and pushing consumes you so much . It's the hardest your body is ever going to work . It feels like extreme pressure mixed with stinging but when that warm bundle slides out after you have pushed out the head and then the rest of that little body comes out its an amazing feeling filled with achievement and love it's all consuming .... The pushing is hard but the contractions as vile as they are really help.

    I had a pretty quick labour second time round, I think I only pushed twice to get DS's head out. In all honesty, crowning hurts. It feels like your nether regions have been set on fire! That said, it is an active pain- you know that the pain means that you are doing the right thing, you know that the pain means your birthing journey is nearly over, and you know that you are close to meeting new bubba. When the time comes to push, believe me, your body seems to take over and gets it done!
    It does feel like you need to poo. The biggest poo ever!

    The whole "you forget the pain as soon as your baby is in your arms" is a load of cr@p....you remember the pain for a long time afterwards...but it isnt important after the fact. Yeah it hurts, but once its done its done.
    Its like a migraine...it friggin hurrrrrrts and once its gone you remember the pain in vivid detail but eventually you do forget EXACTLY what it feels like...until you have another one Lol

    DS1 was a terrible sleeper, we were so sleep deprived for the first 3 months, I used to joke with DH that nature made parents not sleep for months so that the pain of childbirth could be forgotten otherwise we would never procreate!

    I agree with you - you can't forget it... It's just not as important.

    Default Pushing/Crowing

    I had gas with DS, pushing is like doing a #2 with constipation. crowning didn't feel as bad as contractions but still hurt/stung, I could only liken it to the feeling of a Chinese burn but downstairs.

    I was pushing for 2 hours and the relief that came after DS was born was amazing until my OB told me I had to push again to get the placenta out. I think my answer was alone the lines of "you want what????? I thought I was done pushing"

    Default Pushing/Crowing

    The urge to push feels like spewing out your bum. That involuntary sort of feeling. Actually pushing wasn't so much hard work for me, it happened very quickly - like 10 minutes. But it felt really gross! A small person exiting via your v@gina is just an unpleasant sensation. It did stretch and sting but that wasn't so painful really - but I was still having very painful contractions and that sucked. I know some people don't feel contraction pain while pushing but I did.

    ETA: pushing the placenta out was really really unpleasant! It hurt in a stretchy way more than the baby!

    Default Re: Pushing/Crowing

    Hmm, I think it was a lot less bad than I expected. The thing that really threw me was that it felt like dd was going to come out of my bottom. Noone had ever said anything like that to me and I was really scared something had gone wrong. The crowning hurt (for me) a lot less than the shoulders but dd had her hand up like superman which I dont think helped lol. I suspect it's different for everyone and probably with every birth xxx
