Aw, poor little pets.

I wish I could do that to every man who has ever said to me that no matter how hard, labour cannot possibly be as painful as being kicked in the nuts.

The last person to say that to me copped the response of "I don't know, can I kick you in the nuts for twelve hours and we'll see?"

Not only did it last for a mere 2 hours, they didn't have tearing, stitches and all the other messy stuff that goes along with it…not to mention the 9 mths leading up to it.

It was funny to watch though

They should be able to experience lochia surely otherwise the experience is incomplete plus you should chuck in one of those simulator babies that scream on and off every 2 hours or so with someone giving you nipple cripple for about an hour when feeding the damn thing. Then probably throw in 100 visitors who look and stare at you expecting you to clean up after them after they leave saying incessant mutterings.

No to mention wetting themself whenever they laugh/sneeze/cough.

I never get these things. Sure, it's funny to see men get their abdominal muscles shocked and say it's simulated labour, but it's not going to be anything like having a baby.
It's pure pain, there's no hormones helping the body do its job, oxytocin & endorphins - instead it's just adrenaline, making them stressed, and therefore feeling the pain for exactly what it is.

This. And it's not like they're doing it for a good reason.

Yes, women bear the biological brunt of child bearing. Can't change that. Only thing you can change is women also bearing the social burden of child rearing. Lets strive to change that. Simulated labour? Yawn.

I didn't even find that to be the worst bit. It's the pushing bit. If they made them lie on their backs with feet in stirrups with no pain relief and sh*t out a coconut, I would have been impressed.

With both pregnancies (second natural in under 2 hours), the pushing bit didn't hurt a bit and I had 3rd and 2nd (respectively) tears  ph34r.gif

I remember hearing something about the 'ring of fire' during a delivery, is this actually real?

#16 Feral_Pooks

Posted 31 January 2013 - 07:24 PM

Wow! I would do labour 10 times over if I got to skip the pushing part.

Yes, yes it is. I lost the contraction mid head so had half in, half out for a good 30 seconds while i waited for the next one. I believe i used this time to yell "jesus christ" while a midwife who'd popped her head in the door to see if anyone needed assistance nodded at me with the knowing expression of a woman who understood EXACTLY what i meant.

What the hell!! I don't understand how anyone could think pushing "Didn't hurt a bit" ??

It may not have been exactly what labour feels like, but it gave them a healthy respect for what women endure during labour.

I completely skipped the pushing part for number 3,4 and 5. It was very cool.
I was suddenly fully dilated and the babies were shooting out like they were jet propelled.
Ring of fire yes but no pushing and the ROF only lasted a second......very nice indeed.

Personally, it was relief more than pain. I didn't 'push' that hard really, I let my body do it, but being able to bear down actually lessened the pain for me.

I found the pushing part the easiest bit as well but I think that it was because I knew it would be over shortly not that it wasn't painful.

Same here. I remember way more pain from the worst of the contractions than the pushing. I never got the ring of fire either  shrug.gif

The contractions leading up to the pushing were horrendous though..

I did one tiny push with no.2 and no pushing with number 3. As for the ring of fire, I was sucking down that gas like my life depended on it and experienced it as warmth that wasn't uncomfortable.

I'd like them to experience heavy pregnancy. About 41+ weeks when you can't walk properly or close your legs because there's a head in the way. When you can barely move because it feels like your pelvis is going to fall apart and it hurts and everytime you do walk you get the knife in the bum cheek sciatic pain, and every so often you get that lovely nerve pain that feels like a knife being stabbed up your vagina. Couple that with a bladder capacity of 30mls and a couple of young kids and then see how they go.
