I've heard about after pains but figured I should find out a bit more.
What exactly are they? What do they feel like? When do they start? How long do they last? & most importantly what can you do to relieve them?!

They bloody hurt!! Mine felt like contractions - I just kept taking painkillers to help. I dreaded feeding as I knew it would be painful. I'd forgotten all about them until baby number 3 was born and my god they get worse with each baby!
Sorry if that's not what you want to hear lol

Thanks ladies, obviously I wanted to hear that they weren't painful but in all honesty I'd rather know what I'm in for. So they'll be when I feed. Ok, just so I know!!

I found them really painful! Didn't get them for long though.

This does not fill me with joy as I had them with No. 1 and don't fancy them again if they get worse.
Mine mostly coincided with feeding and didn't last the whole feed although one day I did get them all day. My MW did say I could take paracetmol if I wanted to take the edge off but I didn't feel the need as they were always intermitanat. BUT when they did happene they did hurt.
