  • I got one but I don't think it was the medication that made me act "crazy" I just didn't give a damn anymore I even let students check how far I was and everything. I just didn't care I just wanted her out of me lol.

  • nope...i didn't have time! my labors were too quick. My 1st was 2 hours my 2nd was 42 minutes. BUT I don't think I would have even if I had the time. I was more scared of THAT needle then I was of anything else!

  • No, the epi didn't make me act weird. The Phentynol did though. That stuff had me out of my mind.

  • Ah HAIL TO THE YEAH I DID! And with my second birth the anesthesiolgist looked like Christopher Williams and for those of you who don't know he's and R&B singer/actor. I even remember telling my husband everything was gonna be alright cuz Christopher Williams would take care of me when they suddenly had to rush me to the OR to have my daughter and of course everything turned out alright.

    Damn he was fine. Have one girl! hahahaha

  • I didn't have any meds...I was scared of the needle in my spine. I remember everything...but, It didn't last long enough for me to care about the pain.
