Epidurals don't work on me because my babies come too fast:/

I had one for all my births. With my girls, it worked. With my boys, the anisthesiologists were idiots. (I'm using plural on purpose. Delivered at 2 different hospitals, so they were two different idiots.)

With both of them, i told them i felt a pinching in my hip. They said it meant it wasn't in right and called themselves "moving" it. That did NOTHING!!

Immediatly after my water broke with both boys, i could feel the epi wearing off. From that point on, i felt EVERYTHING! I was on Pitocin, so the contractions were coming back to back and i had no relief. They wouldn't even give me anything else cuz i had the epidural- even tho i told all nurses repeatedly that it wasn't working. The machine was on and pumping meds in, so they refused anything else. It was horrible.

The best feeling in the world was when i finally got them out and they turned off that horrible Pitocin and the epi machine.

With my oldest my epideral worked great. No problems.with my youngest the dr who placed it was an ass and didn't do it right. I had to have them keep working with it because it hurt so badly. When i got to pushing everything was numb.... except my vagina and my right hip .. omg that hurt so badly.
