  • i had two with drugs and one without. I'd prefer drugs. My babies were big babies. I'm 5ft 1 and non-prego wieght 120 - 130. babies weighed 7 - 12, 8 - 4 and 9 - 4. My middle daughter was without any pain meds, 8 lb - 4 oz. BUT I have to say it seemed like the recovery was faster without the epidural. Once she was born the pain was all gone. With the epidural you had to wait for feeling to come back and it just seemed to drag on forever. You couldn't get out of bed because your legs were still numb, ect.

  • I never went thru labor cause I had a c-section. But if the feeling of the numbness I had with the spinal is anything like the epidural (elephant on the chest) then NO THANK YOU! lol

  • Two babies. No epidural. My girls were pretty big (8 pounds and 15 ounces, 7 pounds and 14 ounces). Wouldn't have done it any other way.
