  • Not really.I had 3 epidurals.They hit two blood vessels the first 2 times they did it when i was in labor with my daughter and finally got it right the first time.It probably felt better than if i went natural anyway

  • I had the epideral. It did hurt, but only during the pushing part. I didn't feel any of my contractions until they broke my water. Then I just felt the pressure of my contractions. Everyone is different though. My friend had the epideral also and she didn't feel anything at all.

  • I had an epi with both of my kids and it didn't hurt until they dropped down. I had a walking epi though. I could move and feel my legs. It completely took away the back labor I had with my first. They told me that once the baby was in the pelvic area the epi doesn't work. It was worth it though, I wouldn't have made it through labor without it. There is also the regular epi where you're numb from the waist down. I think those are the one that you feel no pain at all.

  • I had a great epidural and actually napped between contractions. They woke me up to push.

  • If it's done right and doesn't ware off then it doesn't hurt really. You're still going to feel pressure though.
