Well, having survived 2 natural childbirths and one obstruction which sent me to the hospital...I would have to say that to me the obstruction was worse than the childbirths. Maybe it's because the obstruction was 2 years ago and I haven't given birth since 1990...haha...so the pain of the obstruction is fresher in my memory...haha. The intestinal blockage was the worst pain I have ever felt, I thought I was gonna die, I couldn't stop vomiting, the abdominal cramping was so painful all I could do was lie on the bathroom floor and cry. It was horrible, to say the least. Plus I hadn't been diagnosed with CD yet so I had no idea what was going on, had no idea it could be a blockage.
That's just my opinion.
Good luck with your pregnancy and blessings to you and your family.
