Getting an epidural hurt?
And having to get a cut down there?
I know it wont matter when you go into labor because you're just in as much pain as possible, but alone how bad do those two hurt?

Episiotomies are not standard practice anymore, or at least they shouldn't be. I didn't get one and I only had a single tiny tear that took just one stitch.
About the epidural, have no clue. Didn't get any pain meds.
And don't worry about being small. I was 19 when I had my son, and I was about 155lbs full-term, normally a 125lbs, 5'5 little thing, lol, and my son was almost 8lbs. Didn't have any problems birthing him. I pushed him out in just 20minutes after about 3 1/2 hours of labor. From start to finish, the whole shabang only took less than 4 hours.
