I voted moderately painful-hospital. I was in labor for 10 hrs *I think? lol* It felt like menstrual cramps until the last hour, when my OB broke my water at 7 cm, then I had the "OMG MY BODY IS BEING RIPPED APART" for an hour, then pushed for 15 min. No meds. I wonder if it would've continued feeling just like menstrual cramps until I was completely dilated if I didn't have my water broken. Next time-home birth, and not having my water broken.
