I think it is different for every mother, I found child birth very painful but I did have two big babies, 8lb 6ozs and 9lb 1ozs. My twins I had by section and they were 7lb 1oz and 6lbs 9ozs. The pain is worth in as you get a wonderful baby at the end of all the pain and hard work.

i guess so, that's what some women told me who have given birth, even my mom, even though she gave birth to me, in cesarean... i have not given birth yet, but i am sure its painful.. even though its painful, giving birth to a child would be precious forever, the child would be a bundle of joy...my relatives told me that giving birth is painful, but the second they saw their baby, the pain is gone, and change by happiness...the doctor will always guide your in case you give birth, do not worry.. i read that there are some exercises that doctor teach to women who are pregnant so that they give birth easily and have less pain.. it might be painfull, but a little bit i think..

I have given birth to 4 children. Yes it is painful and yes it is very worth it. You forget the pain quickly. These days they do have medicine that can help with some of the pain. I chose to not have any medicine. My last child was the hardest as they had to induce labor. My first took about 3 hours, the second took 2 hours and my 3rd was 20 minutes. The last one took about 12 hours or so. I was with my daughter when she gave birth to her son and I know she wanted to change her mind, too late for that. I wouldn't worry over it, God designed us for this.

As far as I can remember, the labor pains, especially the "crowing" part is simply unbearable...it's difficult to describe the pain, which is mostly in the lower pelvic region, and the back part...I thought that it would kill me or tear me apart, especially the first time. Now when I was in the labor room the second time for my second child, I was really frightened because I already experienced the pain. But once the baby's head is out, the pain automatically disappears, and that's what really matters--the arrival of my new baby! Your concern now of course, is to get pregnant and prepare for delivery physically and psychologically. Good luck and here's wishing you the best.

I'm not sure myself as I haven't given birth yet either but I hear it's different for every woman because every woman's different. Of course there's lore about if your feet are big you won't have as bad a child birth and etc, but I don't know if these are true or not. All I can say is when you do get pregnant talk to your doctor and see what they say about it, they may have things you can do and eat while pregnant that are proven to help with child birth.

I can't answer this personally, but from what my sister said, she said the stitches after the birth is more painful than giving birth and one of my friends have also said this as well.
