  • i got my epidural at about 5 cm dilated and mine wore off. It was great during my contractions but started to wear off at about 9 1/2 cm and was too late to give me another dose. That was with my first son, the 2nd son it worked great but that is because I had a c-section and the gave me extra, my third son i had a spinal block and felt nothing.
