Yes, but for back pain, not for a pregnancy.

Oh hells yes!

I firmly believe that I recovered from labor so fast because of it. Battleing pain like that really sucks the energy out of you, and IMO when you are bone tired like that, it just takes you longer to heal/bounce back.

No x 2, and no regrets. Walked, walked, walked as long as I possibly could all over the ward.

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.
I didn't have one with either kid, but it sure wasn't because I wanted to feel the pain.

With DS, I was lucky to have an IV hooked up or have DH get to the hospital in time. No time at all to have one. I'm not joking when I say it was the equvilant to a car going 0 to 60 in 4 seconds. I moved from 4 cm to 10 cm and pushing that fast. The army hospital didn't have the nice rooms that you delivery and stay in. They had rooms you were in while laboring, then they moved you to a delivery room, back to the laboring room right after birth, before finally moveing you to a regular room hours afterwards. I was moving so quickly on them, they were preping both the laboring room and the delivery room for me. They didn't know how quickly I was going to have him. It was comical to actually see peoplebounchin off of each other as they were rushing around. Helped take your mind of what pain there was. And in all honestly, it truely wasn't that bad.

With DD, they induced. Said any time I wanted it, they would give it to me. I wasn't in the mood for one and figured I'd wait awhile. Well, when it got to the point that I was like ok, lets try this epidural thing, it took the DR over an hour to get to the room, so by the time he was trying to put it in, my body did the 4 to 10 thing again and he didn't get to finish. Once again, it really wasn't that bad. Now, this time around I did have an IV in, but I don't remember if there was anything in that to take the edge off or not. If there wasn't it wasn't anything to strong, because I can still remember the contraction that made the nurse stop the epidural. That was the worst one, DH said I nearly broke his fingers. But I think it was the worst, because of being all bent over hugging on the pillow while the DR was trying to put it in.

No, No and YES! First two were too fast (no time) but the third yes . Water broke but did not labour so had plenty of time (they had to drip me to go into labour). WOW, what a difference it makes .

Yes, with both kids. It worked (a little too well) with DD, but with DS is did not work at all.

Jumping in to ask a quick question.

Those who have had an Epidural, were you itchy and nauseated from it? I don't think they use the same meds but I remember when I worked ortho and we had a lot of people that had epidurals for joint replacements and I tell you 3/4 of the ones that had them were throwing up their guts and itching all the time for the whole time it was in (usually until the 2nd day). And then they were still in pain or the wrong leg was numb.

I guess I just have a fear of them for when I have a baby (hopefully sometime soon) but I really don't want to be in pain (I'm a wimp! LOL) so if I wouldn't have the above effects I'll be first in line!

Yes for both

With DS- I was induced and epi was put in at 4.5cm and 20 mins later I was pushing! They never even hooked it up, but they said they must have put just enough numbing medicine that I relaxed enough to dilate.
I got nauseous after delivery, but they said that it was likely due to his fast delivery and not the meds!

With DD- epi in at 4.5 and 2 hours later I was pushing! Not as quick, but it didn't stall out any progress! I will say I still felt everything while I pushed! I don't know if they turned it down or it wore off, but lord almighty I felt it all! I felt so bad for swearing at the Med Student who was delivering me (I okayed it beforehand) that I made DH go out and get donuts for their staff room!

I wasn't itchy, nor did I get a headache with either!

Yes with both kids but 2nd one ended up being a c-section because of his big head.

1st pregnancy had epidural. I had no side effects. 19 hours of labor. Water broke without any contractions, so they had to induce me. I was up & back to normal within a few hours of DD being born.

2nd pregnancy was scheduled for C-section but we didn't make it that long. My water broke (again without contractions). They were setting me up for C-section within 30 minutes of walking into the hospital. I had side effects from that one. Nausea, vomiting, and physically shaking. I was not cold, but could not stop shivering.

They tried to give me one, but it didn't work. After delivery I had a horrible headache that went on for days until I went back to the hospital for a blood patch. The headache was due to leaking spinal fluid caused by the failed epidural attemps. That's why I only have one child. I didn't want to ever go through the pain of labor or a spinal headache again.
