  • i am thinking i dont want an epidual this time either i planed it the first time... and i was really hoping to feel a bit more but in the end i am glad i did it cause the nurses had me sitting all wrong when i was pushing, i ripped from cervix to rectum, i am also thinking if i didnt have it i wouldnt have ripped so bad!!

  • I still have back pain also; and I have had both the spinal and epidural.... C-sections go figure. they are the same thing pretty much only you do not get a constant flow of meds in a spinal as you do a c-section. The great thing with the spinal is that you are up walking around much sooner than with the epidural too, and the catheter is gone as well. I think if they stick anything in your back, you are just screwed. My hubby can't rub my lower back near my spine at all without me screaming... it feels like someone is stabbing me...
