Ok, so seriously the only downside to having my last birth at home was that I didn't have access to adequate pain meds afterwards. The actual birth was no prob but I have *never* experienced pain as severe as the afterpains I had with my 4th (and this includes 2 unmedicated pitocin inductions) They lasted for 3 days and were so sharp and stabbing that I couldn't even breathe through them. Last time I took extra strength Motrin-but id didn't touch the pain. Any ideas? Suggestions?
