  • Lucky you, my epidural only worked on the right side of my body. Opted not to have one with dd2, and won't have one with ds. Labor does hurt like hell though.

  • Labour hurts, no question. My first was a planned c-section as he was frank breech and that was our best option at the time. My second was a VBAC and I had an epidural, the recovery was brutal! Well that may be a bit extreem but it was harder than the c-section. My third I went without an epidural and let me tell you it felt so GOOD to push! The recovery was amazing. So for first time mom's you should know that no doubt it's going to hurt, it's no picnic. But you should do what's best for yourself and take into consideration your pain tollerance and what you wish your recovery to be like. Most women just think about the labour and not about recovery.
