For Women with 2 or More Children and did NOT have an epi

Posted by   + Show Post

I am 22 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. 

My first 2 were delivered vaginally and I had an epi with both. This time around I REALLY want to go natural. I had my previous children also in a military hospital on bases. THEY WERE HORRIBLE. I was restricted to the bed and to laying on my back which I know was because of the epi, but I felt like I almost had NO say in how my delivery went. 

This child is going to be delivered in a civilian hospital where I hope things will go more my way. My question is, did any of your deliveries after the 1st seem easier, harder, or about the same and why......

Thanks!

I was induced with my first and labored 12 hours before breaking down and getting an epi. :/ With #2, I stayed home until I was ready to push. MUCH better. I highly recommend a monitrice if you'd like to stay home as long as you can, or a doula at the very least.
