Hello SAHM ! i was wondering when you guys gave birth, did you get the epidural or did you go natural ? And how was your experience ?
In my experience, I wanted to go natural. and i was doing really good at dealing with the pain seeing as how I'm real bad with pain (I still tear up for needles !) But at 5 cm dialated I couldn't handle the pain any longer and in the middle of the night i screamed for an epidural. I must admit, it was such great relief and it let me sleep so i had plenty of rest when it came time to push. I was also disappointed with myself because I didnt want drugs, i believe a womans body is created to birth babies. I promise myself however that my next child I will try to go natural again. what's your story ?
