  • A little - but in comparison to what I was already going through, that pain was barely a pinch.

  • I didn't feel much either. The thought of it was soooo much worse than the actual procedure.

  • Yes. So when I had my next two kids, I had no epidural,no spinal block, nothing. I don't like drugs.

  • Yes. Much worse than the actual contractions. The anesthesiologist wiggled the needle around...ouch!
