    Oh there is a huge difference between the two... BH I can think properly and do things (whilst feeling extremely uncomfortable). Labour contractions, I couldn't focus on a single thing or even have a proper conversation... For me, the pain is about 10 times worse than BH. But everyone is different with different pain thresholds so everyone will have a different experience...

    Hey ladies. I've been researching TENS machines to use in labor. I'm thinking I may purchase one and was wondering if anyone has any experience with using them (for labor or general pain relief)?

    You can hire them peedy. It's very personal - works amazing for some, does nothing for others.... You won't know til you've tried

    I've been looking at them to hire as well. They're between $50 to $65 plus postage to hire and around $200 or so to buy. Hubby is a tradie so may get some use when he's achy. If not I'm thinking I'll just sell it on. Thanks for the advice ladies. I have a few weeks to do some more research and wait to see where my placenta is before I decide.

    If he gets achey then yeh I say buy it. You'll totally get use out of it. I've used one on my neck before just once and I really did feel looser.

    So our little bubs came home Friday... Weighing 2.38kg and only 18 days in hospital I must admit I pushed her full feeds but she has kept it up since home beautifully and if anything eating more... I always do a top up after breast feeding and sometimes she will either take the full expressed milk or formula top up... She's a guzzle guts!
    Been a great few days... She has stuck to her 3/4 hourly routine sometimes even 2/3 hours but just demand feeding and feeding her till she's not demanding anymore... Hopefully the midwife comes in the next few days to see how the weight is going
    Tomorrow first morning on my own but just looking forward to sleeping really... We will just hang up stairs and catch up on sleep
    How exciting 2 more bubs are here on Thursday so exciting! Also tugs take all the drugs (anti inflammatories Celebrex were awesome for me which I had them for more than 2 weeks) and get up and go ASAP and breast feeding really tightens the uterus so expect pain from that! Good luck xxx

    I've used them for general pain relief (via the physio) and they didn't do much for me.

    Some friends have used in labour and mixed results. Some had a good effect, some not so much - but the ones that it worked well on said it was only early labour that it helped for - then they had to switch up to alternate methods/drugs

    I have an additional question though - ladies that have lost their mucus plug (in this preg or previous), did it all come out in one go? Or was there little bits over time? I'm having loss of a blood clot ( the old one they told me about on thurs when I had a fresh bleed) - instead of coming in one hit it's been doing little bit by bit as it breaks up ... Today though I've noticed bits of cervical mucus as well but not big bits - kinda similar to when you have the EWCM around ovulation ...

    This working out what's going on in there is confusing!

    Wow ttc welcome home. She's so precious. So good to hear she's taking to feeding so well. Knew she was a soldier.
    That's the #1 advice I'm taking in with me; don't decline any pain meds, and walk ASAP. I'll be getting a spinal rather than epi which I hear is better for getting up and about quicker too.
