  • 1. You are just a little over 8 months. (35 weeks divided by 4.3 weeks in a month= 8.1 months) 2. No, it is not wrong of you. I would be worried if you didn't want that! 3. I had an epidural because I had to have a c-section. My sister just had her baby last week and she went natural. She was eating food from Outback an hour after she gave birth and was up and walking around just a few minutes after giving birth. I on the other hand was very groggy because of the epidural and I don't remember much about the first 24 hours of giving birth. It is really going to depend on you but I would at least try natural. You can always change your mind.

  • 1. You are 7 months and 3 week. You are preggo for 40 weeks.
    2. No that is not wrong of you that you want to hold your child, and see if shes nice and healthy.
    3. How are you with handleing pain? If not that good with pain get an epidural, child birth is not as bad as people make out to be. Epidural does not harm your child.( just incase you were wondering.)

  • 1. 8

    2. Completely normal. Baby will be here in a couple of weeks so just hand in there.

    3. Nautral is safer of course because there are risk to any medication. Go to the Nautral Prenancy and Birth Group to get more information. There are more risk than many women think and many women are lied to and told that it doesn't get to the baby when major health organizations say it does. Definately do the research and don't just take anyone, including, your doctor's word for it.

    To safe it's completely safe just because you don't handle pain well isn't a true answer nor does it have any scientific backing.

  • 1.. youre a lil over 8 months. is completly normal to feel that way around the end of your pregnancy
    3...I had the epidural only because I was having back labor so bad. but this time i am hoping to go im not really sure on which is better... which of course, it all depends on how well you can tolerate pain.if you cant.then go for the epidural.

  • 8 months .. and its soo normal .. i was talking to her every day telling her to come out... and
    OMG I hate needles and 3 days of labor i got at least 21 needle pokes while i was in the hospital.. and i swear the epidural is the best thing in the world... i would say get it.. it will make everything less stressful and make it such a happier experience you won't care about any of the pain because you won't feel it... now u don't want to be one of those that changes their mind at the last moment so have a plan as soon as the pain gets to bad get on it... i was so glad.. i got to sleep after i got it.. and i ended up having a c section so even if i didn't want it i would have needed it anyways.. and they just up the dose if u need one so its already there.. they say it hurts there after ..but the pain is really from breast feeding because your sitting up straight all the time.. good luck... take the drugs..

    Um, maybe you need to learn math as well. At least she was closer than you were. 36 weeks is not 9 months that is unless you just want to knock off 2-3 days every month. The only month that has a perfect 4 weeks in it is February (with the exception of a leap year). A 30 day month has 4.28 weeks, and a 31 day month has 4.4 weeks in it. So, on average there is 4.3 weeks in a month. You might want to check your facts before you start criticizing people. Sheesh!
