    Yes!! Hated that pressure, that is horrible. To me it felt like every part of me was blocked and something had to give

    This is exactly how I feel. Things happened fast for me, I was induced and only 2 hours after the drip went in I was in transition. I freaked out when I felt my body starting to push because I thought I still had ages.

    I had a 2nd degree tear but I didn't feel any pain in my perineum or butt, I felt all the burning up the top. So much for all the perineal massage to prepare me for the sensation It was painful but you just push through the pain, you don't really have time to think about it once you have the urge. I also noticed I didn't feel my contractions anymore once I was pushing. Well, I felt them pushing my baby out but I didn't feel pain from them anymore.

    Pushing was actually quite a relief even though it was painful. It meant that it was almost over.

    This!

    I'm so glad ds2 came so fast because otherwise I would have had another epidural and if I had of for me I would be so disappointed, especially if he ends up being our last baby. I would always feel I missed out on something. And honestly I enjoyed (not sure that the right word?!) Ds2's birth more than ds1. I went in screaming for an epidural and the midwife kept saying sorry no time for that.

    With ds1 the epidural numbed too far down and I didn't feel a thing.

    i had the epidural with ds2 but his labour was quick and he was out in 2 pushes, I felt giving birth to him but it wasn't painful at all, I would say it was intense.

    Lol....I'm going to have to disagree, the only amazing thing was that I knew the agony would end! Haha.

    If I ever give birth again I'll get an epidural if there's time. I've had two drug free births (except for a few sucks of gas with DS), and I never wish to do that again. In fact after suffering from a bladder prolapse (and I suspect a rectal one but that's just my own speculation based on some symptoms) I'd go so far as to say I'll possibly opt for elective C-section.

    It was horrible! It was painful and I could feel the stretching (even with an epidural). My DD3 was posterior so I had to push a lot. It was the first time I'd felt the pushing as I'd previously had epidurals with complete blocking. I can remember being scared. DH was mortified!

    I was too afraid to have an epidural ( I'm use in nov) until I read this thread! Now I'm more open to the idea!
