    I think men would be bragging about the size of the babies they can push out, much like comparing their penises haha. I'm sure that they would milk it for all it's worth and make us wait on them.
    Haha yep, my DH would for sure! I'd never hear the end of it.

    And yes, light-hearted, maybe I caught people at a bad time!

    Ok look people, it was the title of the video, I didn't mean anything by it, of course if there was no choice they'd have to do it but that's not the point - its just having a bit of fun with a couple of dudes who agreed to go through a simulation.

    Enjoyed the video. I'm going to make DH watch it tonight just for fun.

    It reminded me of having my first bub. My second bubba is due anytime now and that will be me but for some reason the video still made me laugh. Crazy huh.

    I just had a moment to watch the video. I thought it was great, very realistic.

    Of course some men could

    Mine, absolutely not. But he'd never pretend for a second that he ever could either. He wouldn't have a chance in hell of going through labour. He would most definitely opt for a c-section, in fact, he'd probably want to be knocked out.

    Haha oh how I wish I would put DP throught this. So that he could have a small glimpse of the pain us women go through. He jokes that labour is more painful for him.

    They should introduce this into antenatal classes for the soon to be dads to experience it. It'll give the soon to be mothers a little giggle.

    I honestly don't think DP could handle it. He admits that he has never seen someone in so much pain.

    I heard last night on Embarrassing Bodies that they say Kidney Stones are more painful than labour.

    I've heard that. I'd love to know whether mothers who have experienced kidney stones and several labours feel this way.

    Considering all labours are different, I'd like to know how they came to this conclusion. I honestly cannot fathom anything more painful than my posterior labour, I don't want to really :\

    I've had kidney stones and 2 labours. Stones are a walk in the park...once I knew what was causing the pain! Perhaps that's the diff...you expect pains at the end of pregnancy - whereas with stones I thought I was dying from an unknown cause hee hee.
    My DH says he'd give labour a good go after trying some of my gas a few weeks ago, 2 sucks and he was all wobbly. He is so stubborn he'd do it but I'd never hear the end of it

    They can also give you better pain meds than they can with labour can't they?

    I agree with benji, all labours are different so how can they really know?
