Thank God my epi worked! It worked every time for all of my babies, and didnt cause me any kind of lasting effects, no back pain nothing.

Quoting Belle.:" Also I would NOT recommend the epidural. I got one because I was induced and my contranctions were very ... [snip!] ... a natural birth because the epi didn't work! But it's different for everyone, next time I will not be getting one though."


I've heard of that happening to a few people, how awful! My epi was amazing both times. lol

Yeah it effects everyone differently. I was kind of glad it didn't work on me though because it made it very easy to push. I only pushed for 20 minutes and the pain wasn't that terrible

I kind of think mine wasn't working or if it was they stopped it or lowered the dose, because i felt every single contraction and knew right when to push lol
it wasnt that bad at all, it was actually a relief to push and feel progress.

Yeah one half of me was frozen up to my chest and the other half wasn't frozen at all. My contractions were horrid but pushing was definitely a releif. My one friend who got the epi was in the delivery room for hours and hours cause she didn't know how to push properly because she was so numb

The Epi did that to me with my first I pushed for 2 1/2 hours because I couldnt feel a thing, but the other five I only pushed for no more than 5 minutes with each one of them and had the epi each time.
