With my last delivery I had an epidural and if I could go back I would skip it. Here is what happened. The Anesthesiologist pricked himself with the needle before inserting it into my back. From that point it was all down hill. He went from having this cocky face to a look of I just pooped my pants.
Anyway, he got a new needle and in he went. It would of been great if he would of done it properly. Whatever he did I was only getting the medication on one side of my body. So, I felt everything on the left side and my right leg and hip felt like I had a log attached to my body. So uncomfortable. And I felt the delivery anyway on one side. And it hurt like heck, I can only imagine if I felt the whole thing.
Anyone experience this? If you have delivered without pain meds is it really that intolerable? I'm really thinking about skipping the whole epidural thing this time. What do you think?
