  • My first, I got an epidural, I tried not too, but I started contracting on a wednesday night and he did not come until Friday afternoon soooo..........

  • For my 24 hours of labor with my 9lb 6oz, "Sunny-Side-Up" baby that didn't want to come out? An epidural. Despite the epi, delivery still hurt like hell and I still felt my stitches afterward too. Nice right?

  • I had a shot of something in my IV to help calm me down - it didnt help. With my last (I have 3 kids) the dr rubbed my lower back and they put wet wash cloths on my body to help - that was about it besides just sucking it up and dealing with it

  • My 2 sons came sunny-side-up also... that is the worst pain EVER right there. I did it with no pain meds with all 3 of my kids... tried breathing.. that dosent help - I just kind of had to deal with it.
