With my first our midwives gave me a gallon of tea to help with the pains and I had no pains (other than having felt like i pushed out an 8lb baby!) of course it was my first so we shall see with this next one.

My second was soooooo much easier than my first. I felt like Id been hit by a car after the first. The second...soooo easy. Bleeding was much lighter too.

Eta: the nurses had to push on my stomach more with the first. With the second, they kind of left me alone and I didnt have as much pain. I had more bleeding with the first overall. I did not take meds round the clock. I took motrin with both when I felt like I really "needed" it.
