Epidurals?

I had epidurals with both of my kids. The sooner, the better. I admire moms who go without pain meds! Did you or will you have an epidural?

    I used one. I never felt pain for even a moment. I can take pain, but if I don't have to and I don't have to pay to not feel pain, I will definitely take the "no pain" route. I don't care for the pride of "I did it naturally" or whatever. I just want it over as quick and easily as possible. I know some people have horrible side effects, like headaches and whatnot. I didn't, and next time it comes time to deliver, I'll be going with the epidural again.

      Haiden i had pain meds through the iv, but i asked for it. No sooner than the guy came to give it to me i was already 9cm. I still got it but it kicked in as i was pushing.
      With logan i only had pain meds throug the iv.

      With vincent i had no pain meds at all.

          I had a c-section and they tried to do an epidural because I don't stay numb for very long but my son was so big I couldn't get in the right position so they did a spinal injection.

          Yuk! I kind of wish they had just knocked me out for a few minutes and did the c-section. I don't remember much of it anyhow and what I do remember was pain and being so scared. I had a ton of nerve damage that took almost a year to heal too.

              I did, after induction and before an unplanned c-section. I was happy with the experience, though!

                I had epidurals with my first three-bad reactions from the last two. My youngest was a natural birth.
