If I had pain as intense as labor pain at another time, when I didn't know there was a perfectly natural reason for the pain, I might think I was dying.
I had a rather intense, FAST labor... I didn't think I was dying, or wanted to. And luckily, I just just as intense an adrenaline rush after (I was screaming how awesome I was at the top of my lungs).
But I didn't feel like I was dying. It actually felt more like I was incredibly constipated and was pooping a big one... that more adequately describes it. Like I was constipated for a month and then it all came and hit me at once.
Ok, that was totally TMI.
