Spinal Headache?

I was wondering if any of you Mamas have had a spinal headache as a result of your epidural?
During my last delivery I got a spinal headache. It was the worst headache I could have ever imagined. After two weeks, it was not gone so I had to go and have three blood patches before one of them took. It was horrible. I couldn't hold my head up, I couldn't enjoy my baby or anything.
I am now 31 weeks pregnant and want to have another epidural but I am also worried about another spinal headache. I would love know the stories of any of you who have had a spinal headache and gone on to have another epidural. Did you get another one?

  • Yes it was awful! I have never used an Epidural since then.

    Have you thought about just going for a drug free birth? :)
