  • Yes!!! The contractions weren't that bad for me, but my epidural didn't work right and I felt EVERYTHING!! It burns so bad!!! BUT once it's done the pain goes away and you honestly don't really remember. I know it hurt, but it didn't hurt bad enough to keep me from wanting more kids!

  • With my first one i had an epidural and I didn't feel a was great. But with my second I had an epidural but I got it too late and I felt everything..YES it hurts and I would never wish that pain upon my worst enemy..that's just my opinion.

  • that's a silly but common question
    of course it hurts. it hurts like hell that is why i got the epidural both times
    I decided on an all natural birth my first time. but about 6 hours into i had all i could take. i told them "get that damn nurse in here and bring the needle with her" i was so angry.. once i got the epidural i was happy go lucky and all was right with the world again. i even got sleep before I endured the rest of my 25 hour labor.

  • Do you think it would hurt to push a watermelon thru a hole the size of a pea?

  • Ok so I had an epidural with my 1st...i was young and scared!!! The epidural made me shake and freezing cold. Then with my 2nd I kinda knew the drill so I didnt want the epidural at all!!! Yes it was painful but I did it and when it was over I completely forgot the pain!
