Does it really hurt when baby comes out?
Ummm yes! Giving birth is no easy task and it doesn't exactly feel good either. We only open up about 10 cm and we'd be pretty lucky if a baby's head is that small. Lucas' head measured at 14.75 c, around at birth. Did I get an episiotomy..? Of course I did lol, I HAD to because his head was so big. Does an episiotomy hurt..? YES!!! I didn't feel it at the time, but boy did I feel it after! It didn't sting or burn for me when he was coming out, there was just a ton of pressure which hurt a lot. After my stitches healed though, and I couldn't feel them anymore, I did forget what it was like during delivery. I honestly have no memory of it anymore. :)
