I had an epi, but it had worn off completely by pushing, pushed for 70mins - It stung like all get up, and was physically exhausting - but compared to posterior contractions was less painful! It was a more rewarding sort of pain, if that makes sense, so while it stings, you can feel you're getting further each time, and helps you keep going.

For me transition was the only part of the active labour that actually was "painful". The rest of it was really manageable in comparison. I got through it by sucking like a mo fo on the gas. Dh said I was saying really silly things and was being rude to the midwife and using a baby voice. I don't remember much of it to be honest, except that it was painful. It didn't last long though, maybe half an hour and then I got the urge to push. Pushed for half an hour.

Its so interesting to hear all the different experiences. With all three babies I dont remember a "ring of fire" over the pain of contractions at all. I also agree with many pp, the pressure feels like hell!

The pushing part is actually quite amazing as it takes away the pain from the contractions! I couldn't believe it but once I figured out it was true, allI wanted to do was pushing :-D

I didn't experienced that transition pain either. I couldn't believed my OB/GYN... I told him I was really scared of not managing transition without an epi and he told me that I was already managing and I was well into transition.
I guess my point is don't expect labour to be an excruciating pain, it was def not like that for me.
