  • Are you planning on getting an epidural? If so, it is not too bad. For me, getting the epidural was the worst part, after that, I didn't really feel anything, just pressure.

  • HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! No... it feels WONDERFUL. That's why I got my tubes tied. Because after three times I couldn't stand the joy anymore.

  • epidurals dont always work. so even if you plan on getting one also plan to take some ways to deal with pain.

  • It hurts, but, it isn't so bad. I didn't have any meds.

  • Its like the worst stomachache you ever had times ten! You can't get an epidural until you're at least 3 cm. You can be in ALOT of pain before that.

  • I'm a wuss. And quite frankly, while I DID hurt, it's not too bad. Oh, and I couldnt' have meds (even though I really wanted some) and I wasn't too bad.
