If you tell the nurses you don't want an epidural they will motivate you and reassure you through everything, even when you ask for meds mine would said come one, let's do a little longer and see how your feeling. When I finally said I really wanted it it was too late and time to push. Without their support I think I would have gotten one and I'm so happy I didnt

I didn't have an epidural with my first and that's how I plan to have this one. All I had is what is called nebayne which is suppose to take the edge off the contractions. For me it actually allowed me to get some sleep before my son came. And when it was time I knew, my body started pushing for me. I had told myself the whole pregnancy I was NOT getting an epidural. And have someone there to support your decisions. I also had to tell myself that it was going to hurt like hell. And going in for me it wasn't as bad as I always thought it would be!! Express what you want and be honest with yourself!! ❤❤ Congrats momma!!!

It is a little bit however I breast fed him just fine and he was a very happy baby. I went back to work way earlier than I wanted to, so I couldn't keep up with him. That's the only thing I will change this pregnancy,I'll take my full 6 weeks then come back.

I got an epidural with my first and it didn't work anyway and just slowed down my labor.:/ I don't plan on getting one this time but I also won't feel bad if I do end up trying it again. I don't like taking medicine either, like not even a Tylenol.
