    I never had them, so couldn't tell you from experience. But I've heard other people say they are like contractions or period pain.

    Yep, uterus contracting back to normal size. Mine weren't too bad after DS1, but were as bad as my worst labour contractions with DS2.

    I didn't get them bad until my third...holy hell, it was like labour all over again. They were so painful the colour actually drained completely from my face and my midwife offered me some pain relief. I only had them really bad the first day.

    After my first DD I had none at all. Second time around, oh my goodness! I was in agony. I had no idea what they were until the nurses told me. It was like period pain on steroids. I had a c-section and was on pain killers for that, but the pain killers (endone, Voltarin etc) didn't even touch the after birth pains.

    Nothing different.

    Maybe I was just more worn out with ds1 labour so it seemed worse?? Dunno, but ds3 was only born 7 months ago and I didn't need any drugs for the after pains..

    I had them something shocking with my third. I am so not looking forward to them when my fourth arrives in approx 7 weeks.
