    Feels like you're going to rip open. Was so amazed to only have 2nd degree tears with DD, the pressure was incredible.

    Crowning was the most painful for me. I didn't push at all with DS2, I just breathed through it and let my body do the work and I had no tearing at all.

    DS1's birth was pretty traumatic so I couldn't say which part was the most painful.

    It wasn't painful at all for me, very intense but it was such a relief to be pushing. 30 minutes for me and DS finally came out in one push, there wasn't any break between the head and shoulders.

    I never got the ring of fire people talk about (that I can remember?) Probably because he came so fast, I think he was out in 2 contractions. For me the pushing was not the worst, the transitional phase was by far worse. I wish I had of known that because afterwards I thought it wasn't as bad as I thought and I wished I wasn't so scared of it because it would have been a much better experience if I had of been more calm.

    With my 3 vaginal births, I never had that whole 'ring of fire' thing that others talk about, I never felt any burning sensation at all. In saying that, I let my body do the work and didn't actively push, my bodies urge to push was just so overwhelming that I let it take over.

    For me, the feeling was such huge relief, to have all those contractions and then finally have the urge to push, it was just an awesome amount of relief. My body would bear down and I'd have the uncontrollable urge to push, so I did, and the relief, oh the relief! I didn't find pushing hurt, not compared to contractions.

    This exactly! And I honestly felt like my bowel was being ripped outside my body. It was extremely intense pressure but as pp's have said it is short lived, once she was out though the relief was amazing.

    I didn't find it painful at all, the word that comes to mind is 'intense'. That said after being desperate to push for over an hour but not being "allowed", once I finally started pushing I was so euphorically happy that any pain was probably masked by that.

    But very intense.

    See I heard about the ring of fire and yes it hurt but honestly the contractions were worse for me. I had a water birth though so maybe that's why I didn't have as much pain?

    Also for me once DS head was out I didn't even feel his shoulders come out, it's like he just slipped out after that.
