I'm pretty good with pain when I have to be, but if I don't have to, then there's no way in hell I'm going to. I got my epidural when I was still just 3cm. I literally felt nothing my entire labor. Absolutely NOTHING. And you bet I want that again!!!! All I felt was the insane pressure of pushing for 2 hours, but that was it and it went by so fast. I was in labor for 23 hours and slept most of the time. Pushed for those last 2 hours and Lucas was out! I didn't want to feel anything and that's exactly what I got. I better have the same next time or the nurses are really going to hate me. I have quite the temper. Plus, as far as I know, I'm a tiny body that makes big babies. Ugh.
