Should I get an epidural? I am really scared to have a need in my back, even though I have no problem with needles anywhere else. I am afraid of how bad it will hurt, and Im also afraid of the pains and effects of it after it all wears off and everything, but I know I won't be able to handle the labor pain. Im not due for another 14 weeks, but I would love some input so I can decide on what to do and so I can check this off of my mental stress lists so I can stop worrying about it. Please help?Answer Question

You need to talk to your Doc/midwife about this... you are going to get TONS of heated opinions here!!
Personally I LOVED my two Epi's, didn't have any complications, kids are fine, didn't feel the needle at all, could feel the contractions but it made them not painful. Before the epi I couldn't even communicate with anyone b/c of the pain, I didn't have control of the situation, I couldn't speak... once the Epi kicked in I was able to actually participate in the experience..
Everyone is different, every labor is different... you have to decide what is best for you...with the help of a medical professional!! Not a bunch of opinionated women on the Internet ;o)
