LOL I'm the opposite. I'm paranoid of any type of pain. I will do anything possible to avoid it.

Yes, both times. With my son, I got it after 7 hours of labor and was dilated to 5. With my daughter, I had pre-term labor and was actually going to be sent home, but she decided she was coming, and I ended up not being able to get my epidural until I had labored for 37 hours was dilated to an 8 and in transition. Epidurals = heaven. They allow you to actually enjoy the birthing process and not have to be so focused on the pain. I had two healthy, beautiful babies who are now 10 and 6.

I have never heard of it. I will have to google. I was told to stay flat on the couch and only move to use the ladies room and to get fluids in. It was absolutely horrible. I would have done anything if they offered, but nothing was. Hmm, makes me kind of upset now.

Didn't affect my ability to push either. DD's epidural didn't work well, so I did have pain, I delivered her in three.
With DS, I had to deliver lying on my side (because my blood pressure wouldn't stay up). I felt no pain, just very warm and fidgity as a contraction came on. The doctor told us "This will take a while, it's very difficult to push effectively in this position." DH tried to warn her that DD came very quickly, but she didn't pay any attention.
She YELLED at me to STOP on the first push, grabbed a gown shoved it over her lower arms and let it dangle from there, pulled on gloves; and on my second push, out he came.
DH looked at her and said "I told you so."

It's ironic that I spent almost 9 months absolutely terrified of preterm labor & time in the NICU... it just seemed like a foregone conclusion with twins. Then weeks and weeks and weeks passed, and even though I had been 4cm since 34 weeks, nothing was happening and they had to induced me at 39+ weeks just to get the stubborn little buggers out!

Had an epidural and 2 of my 3 babies were delivered with a vacuum, but all were delivered after only 20 minutes of pushing, max. With DD1, I didn't dilate evenly and had a "lip" that she couldn't make it past. So they used just a tiny bit of suction to help her past it. Pushed for about 20 minutes but it was my first time so I probably only had about 5 minutes of GOOD pushing, lol.

With DD2, she was apparently have some pretty bad decels whenever a contraction came when I was trying to push, so after only about 2 pushes, they put the vacuum on her and got her out ASAP. She came out sunny side up, screaming at the doctor & peeing all over him -- she was just fine.

DD3 didn't need any assistance... she came 14 minutes after DD2 with only 3 pushes. She was over a pound heavier than DD2 too.

No, because I was more scared of the epidural than of the pain of childbirth. It worked for us.

after 37 hours of labor, had a spinal.

the other pregnancies, nothing.




not my choice, but the boys came too quickly for the epidural.

Yes, twice

First time worked like a charm.

Second time, blood pressure dropped so they had to stop the epidural (side effect), then could not administer a different kind, so had to tough it out - not a good thing!

I'm due in 6 months and plan to get one in case I need a c-section. General anesthesia and I DO NOT get along so I want to be prepared. Plus I think the pain may trigger my panic disorder if I think something is wrong and it isn't normal pain.

Nope, three natural births.

Two in birthing centers, one at home, with a midwife. Such empowering experiences and I was up and about 10-15 minutes after giving birth all three times. Those birthing experiences were for me priceless.

Same here for me! I had 3 babies. The first 2 no epidural the last one with an epidural. My recovery from the last was much longer. I wonder if it would have been a faster recovery if I opted not to have the epidural.

Yesx3.

I tried to tough it out, but various minor complications kept me stuck in bed on my back. I think I could have pushed through otherwise, but it wasn't to be.

I had three lovely, healthy little girls and that's all I really care about.

I have anxiety disorder and the nerves and stuff when everything started happening, especially with my first, really put me into a tailspin. I felt so much better once I had the epi placed and could relax and could forget my body was getting ready to evict this baby, lol. For me, dwelling on it & the myriads of things that could possibly happen and all the various scenarios of what it's going to be like, etc. is really what sets my anxiety off so being able to put it out of my mind and distract myself with other things helped calm me down.
