Quoting Heather Manson:" I had my first one o-natural and thats how im having my second one. Due Dec. 21st! Only thing Im worried ... [snip!] ... the epidural.. Anyone else have it? I didn't with my son, and I am getting one this time, and then my tubes tied. SO NERVOUS!"
I hyad an epi both times but I have to say I am nervous this go round and was thinking about having a different labor just to try something new. Both of my boys I was induced so the contractions were stronger than our natural contractions. The needle did hurt BAD but they give it in between a contraction, It's painful but just for a moment. As long as you sit still it is quick. As soon as it hurts, 5 seconds later you don't feel a thing. Both labors were easy, contractions were so minimal in pain. The Dr. Had to tell me when to push.
