    With my first i screamed like hell. It was the most intense pain ive ever felt. But as soon as the midwife said 'it will be over soon'. I was ok. It was terrible pain but over quickly. The worst thing was the pressure (bearing down) i remember thinking 'oh my god i need to poo'. Thats how i kind of describe it. Its like the biggest poo youve ever done . With my second it wasnt so bad cos i knew what to expect.
    Just let your body do it. You really dont need to push, just relax and go with it. Ps Morphine helps to relax.

    For me pushing is the BEST pain relief. I love that stage. Yes it does burn for a few seconds with your first few bubs but the pain relief of pushing well and truly makes for that.

    It's the only time I was able to focus! Couldn't have been too bad, I tried to go to sleep with a little head earthside

    Feels like sweet sweet release.
    Did for me anyway. With my first I was pushing for only 15mins and with my second I pushed for 5 (3 contractions). Hours of pushing would suck and be more painful Id imagine......for me it just felt soo good because thats all my body was telling me to do at that point.

    I had the same concerns during my second pregnancy, as I also had an epidural with my first so I felt nothing during pushing so had no idea to expect.

    I found the difficult stage the hour before the pushing, that is when I lost it and was screaming etc as the contractions were so intense. I only pushed for about 5 minutes and it was over. I can't really describe it - maybe like the worst constipation ever x 1000, lol. I don't know. I don't remember burning, but I'm sure it did as I tore. But, you are just so focussed on getting that baby out, that it motivates you to keep going as you know the end is near.

    For me the pushing stage was such relief. In fact as soon as my waters broke (about 40 mins before DD was born) the release of pressure made the contractions so much more bearable. Pushing hurt but I think it was easier to deal with because I felt like I could push against the pain instead of just having to lay back and take it like I did with contractions. My body sort of pushed on its own at the beginning and I was just like F it I'll just push as hard as I can and I don't care if I rip in half, lol! That feeling settled after a bit though and I was more in control of my pushes, so I didn't actually tear. I also found birthing DDs body really uncomfortable. It kind of felt like my insides were being rearranged. But then she was out and it was like nothing had happened!

    I'd take pushing over contractions any day!

    I have to agree that the pushing stage provides a massive relief, knowing that it's all over & the pain is going to stop almost immediately! Both my labours were quite quick though, so pushing didn't last very long (10mins for my first & <5mins for my second). I actually found pushing the placenta out more painful both times 😳

    The best way I can describe the 'ring of fire' is if you grab your index finger & middle finger and stretch them away from each other as much as you can, you'll feel the burning sensation... Basically what it feels like down there!! Not the best feeling, but definitely tolerable & the finish line is right in front of you!!

    I haven't been able to read this thread without cringing with the memories of pushing but I'll try to describe it..

    There was intense pressure and it felt like it was burning (not like if you were literally on fire but a stinging kind).

    Then it felt like I was going to tear apart and honestly like you need to poo.. once the head was out it was easy but I could have taken hours of contractions over even 5 minutes more pushing!

    I'm talking normal contractions though not induced ones! Pushing was 10 minutes the first time and 15 with my second.
