As far as I know, that line in Genesis is the only mention of childbirth in the Bible (waiting for all the other references to be offered here!!) Would anyone with any intelligence seriously believe that your sins are being totted up through pregnancy so you can suffer a measured amount of pain in chilbirth? Perhaps it's equated to the measure of pleasure you had in the begetting!!!
Im christian. Had an epidural with DD1, was fantastic. Epidural failed with DD2 and no time to re-site it. Pain was bad, but managed on gas and air, and looking back (rose tinted glasses) it was my favourite birth. DS was a farking nightmare start to finish, no epidural allowed, gas and air cannisters kept running out and it was pure torture.
3rd babies hurt the most. Fact. (well in my opinion!)
And whats christian got to do with the price of farking chips?
