I had my baby on Tuesday I had 2 epidurals because they first one was not helping, since I had them I've had back pain in the area it was given is this normal? Has anyone had this happen?

Congrats on the new baby :-) I've heard of some women having pain. It usually seems to go away within a couple weeks.

Yep fairly normal :) they actually brushed a nerve while doing mine and my entire left side flinched. It was SO weird and scary!

congrats on your baby! I dont know how common it is or not I had my 1st 3 babies all natural (ughhh) and I had an epidural (actually 3 epidurals ) for my 4th baby and I had no head ache and no back ache and no side effects at all.  So I am not sure

feel better soon

Congrats on your new baby!  With my first, I had to have 2 epis as well.  I had tenderness and slight pain for a few weeks.  It definitely got better but I was sure to mention it to my OB just in case there was something else going on.
