1 Bump

due in less than 4 weeks...

This is my third. My first was natural no pain med at all, second I wanted a epidural the guy did of like 7 times and I only ended up with a numb leg, I really want to try getting one again but is it worth it I mean what are he chances it'll work this time. Scared about it even more so this time around cause I don't think it'll work again.

  • it sounds like the anesthesiologist didn't know what he was doing. i would make sure i had a different dr. and if it is not working after the second attempt i would get a different anesthesiologist.

  • My first 2 the epidural didn't work at all. So when I was in labor with my 4th I told the anesthesiologist about it - the same person did the first two, had someone different for the last 2. New guy got it right the first time, even though I was extremely worried about it not working again. He did almost as well with the last one. If you're in a large enough hospital maybe you can ask for someone different to do it if it's the same person?
