First child= epidural
Second child= c-section
Third child= All natural!!! So proud of myself on that one.
Had an epi with both, actually experienced the final stages of labor and popping the kid out natural. With my first, they ut the epi in above a curve in my spine and made the comment "hope this isn't too high". Well I started having breathing issues and they turned the meds off. Hello feeling nothing to full blown 8-10 cm dialation and birth. woooooo fun ><With my second, I kept refusing the epidural and refusing until I finally gave in just to get everyone in my L&D romm including my hubby to STFU. They came in, threaded it, then said she had to go get the drugs cause they weren't ready to dispense when she came down. I laid back and said--"It's go time". Was popping the baby out when the girl got back with the meds. I was given the test dose they give to make sure its in the right place for my placenta delivery and stitches :)
Epidural with all 3 births!
