Edpidural or not?

You've had one or went natural? Pros and cons of both experiences? Would you change what you did?

Thanks for featuring me :)

I didn't like how loopy I was, didn't fully enjoy seeing my son for the first time

First two were natural, next 2 were sections.

I had three epidurals. It helped me relax and enjoy the birth. Only thing I didn't like was not being able to get up and move around I was so bored having to stay in a bed.

I had one and it was great. It worked perfectly. I only felt pressure, but it wasn't so harsh that I couldn't tell what was going on. I knew exactly when to push and didn't fell "out of it" at all. It wore off when it was supposed to and I was able to walk around after a few hours.

How long until you could get up? We're you cathed?

Never had one. Not by choice. I would love to experience birth with one.

I prefer to go without. It hurts bur the pain is over once the baby is out. I also hate being numb and the catheter. I also don't send my baby to the nursery so I like to be able to get up and walk freely, etc...

 Epidural all 4 times. I hated the feeling of not being able to feel my legs but yes I would do it again. It took away the contraction pain.

Were you loopy?
