labor pain is much worse in my opinion.

At the time you are able to push, your body goes into auto-pilot. During the contractions you start to worry that you won't be able to take any more, but pushing is almost involuntary. When you get the urge to push, it's actually a relief cause you are about to cross the finish line!

    Thats how I felt. My nurses were telling me not to push yet cause the doctor wasn't in the room and I couldn't help it. Almost like my body was doing it by itself. The contractions were horrible until the epidural doctor got in there. Then it was easy sailing for me.
