h-e-double hockey sticks yeah, I did!!

With my second delivery (twins) I was required to have one because of the increased risk of c-section. That way, if the second baby got stuck, they could perform an emergency c-section without having to put me completely under. I was also required to deliver in the OR because of the c-section risk.

A was 6lb 8oz and B was 7lb 10oz and thankfully were both delivered w/o a c-section.

Three kids, one epidural. Hard to describe how much better I felt post delivery for the no epidural births.

2 babies, 2 c-sections, 2 epidurals. (I would have done it anyway, regardless of the c- section, because after experiencing the labor- why suffer??)

1st and 2nd DDs I had intrathecal injections. They were managed perfectly and worked wonderfully.

3rd DD's delivery turned into a bit (ok, a LOT) of train wreck and so we never had a chance. It was ugly.

As someone else said, if I am in pain for any other reason I am going to take pain medications, I see no reason why childbirth should be any different. Medical science has worked for years to develop all those nifty meds, after all.
