U guys, i am totally freaked out about labor w this child i am carrying. With my last child, my blood pressure bottomed out after the epidural. I remember feeling so sleepy and seeing things spin, and telling my husband something was wrong. While I was passing out I remember him yelling trying to make me stay awake. I waited until about 8 cm dilated to have my epidural, and i only had it then because with my first child, it didn't work well, and I could feel the pressure and pain of pushing him out. So, I am wondering if maybe to be on the safe side I should go natural. How much worse does it get after 8 cm without and epidural? I am scared all the way around.
