I still have mild back pain from my epi... but its nothing horrible. It didnt hurt as bad as you would think when I got it either. Good luck.

 just because you had a c section with your first doesn't mean you need a c section this time around...but about the epidural i had one and everything went smoothly. your  baby stil has PLENTY of time to turn!

mama go to a chiropractor that specializes in pregnancy! my SIL is pregnant and her baby was breech and then she went to the chiro and he helped her get the baby to flip! She's not breech anymore and gets to deliver vaginally now! Good luck!

I'd go now, it takes several visits and you have to do some exercises at home, it's not a quick fix but it can work!

I had an epidural for a vaginal delivery, not a cesarean, but I did not have any side effects from it at all.  As far as I know MOST epidurals go smoothly, but there is always someone out there with a horror story.

Yeah you don't have to have a c-section because you had one before and if anybody says you do they are lying.

 sorry to hear that mama :(

i would be more scared of the c section than the epi...i didn't even feel my epi go in but maybe that was because i was already in so much pain...good luck to you!!

those are both not reasons to have a c-section, only a complete placenta previa is a real reason, and lots of high risk women give birth vaginally

I wouldnt really worry about it!  I had 2 c-sections..The first  I had  an epidural then had to go in for an emergency c-section then the second they gave me a spinal..It didnt hurt at all..Afterwards it didnt bother me one bit! Didnt get a headache or anything...And about being numb from the neck down..I really dont remember if my chest was numb during..But afterwards everything was fine and I got to breastfeed..So dont stress! Everything will go great!!
