Did you have an epidural?
Yes or no?

MomofKatie 01-24-2013 01:12 PM

Absolutely!! Why suffer needlessly?

Yes. I had induced labor and the contractions were horrible. I ended up with a c-section, though, because the cord was wrapped around his throat twice.

Yes! Twice and I plan on it again w/ my third

Yes I did with my first child. I was one of the not so lucky ones that it didn't work properly. Ended up having an emergency c-section so by having the epidural already in place the doctors were able to get my numb more quickly.

First DD - no...not enough time as nurses had sent us home, and told us to come back in the morning. We had to turn around and go back right away. I almost had her in the truck. ;)

Second DD - no....asked for one, but the only anestiesologist (?) was in a surgery and did not get out in time.:sad2:

Third DD - no....I figured I had done it twice before, I could do it again. :thumbsup2

I wish I did though!!

No twice, and I never regretted the decision.

I had epidurals with my first two & liked it.
With my third baby I waddled into the delivery room at 2am & she was already crowning, so no pain relief for that one!
I prefer the epidural.

Yes x2 :)

3 kids. Didn't have one for any of the three. I did have Stadol with DS, but realized I didn't really need it with the girls.

Of course.

And if I broke my leg in two or had a heart attack, I'd want pain meds for that.

Suffering through pain because you just want to feel the pain...not for me. No way, Jose.

I think it is great if other women want to have natural births. Yay, them!

But it wasn't for me. Jeepers. It was bad enough before the lovely epidural.

hegsag 01-24-2013 01:23 PM

No! Not for either birth...didn't need it.

1st dd- no- natural birth

2nd dd- yes- breech birth- was marvellous!

ds- really wanted one,but he was born 17minutes after arriving at the hospital- it hurt! :rotfl2:
