I agree that a heating pad is essential! Being that this was my 5th baby and I had gotten some pitocin jammed into my leg for excessive bleeding after the birth, I knew they were gonna be bad and they definitely were- felt like labor all over again, maybe worse. It was slightly better if I remembered to take Motrin well before nursing, but many times I was reaching for the bottle as I was in the midst of all that pain which was obviously too late. Those pains alone made me doubt ever having a sixth baby.
