I was induced due to pre eclampsia for my first child. I had an epidural at 5cm, and it ended in an emergency c-section. This time I'm thinking about going all natural (providing I don't need intervening)
I'm a little scared of doing a vbac but I have a great Dr who says Im a great candidate. I'm wondering if not having an epidural would just be too much.
I can remember only tiny bits of my first birth after recieving the epidural and after that I just feel like I wasn't there anymore, totally absent and out of control. I passed out and only woke up when the nurse shook me and told me to push.
Anyway, what type, if any, of pain meds did you use? How painful? All info is helpful. Thank you.
I was also induced with my first and if this baby is late I will be induced again. But I didn't have a C-Section, I had her vaginally. Anyway I didn't get the epidural, I did get the one that goes in your IV I'm not sure what it's called to be honest. It DOESN'T take the pain away lol, for me it just knocked me out which was good because I needed rest and well how was I going to rest with contractions lol. It can be done, like the first poster said keeping telling yourself it can be done. When you can't take it anymore is when you are SO close to actually pushing part, plus when you push you don't feel the contractions anymore and once the babies head is out it's a breeze!
