i honestly couldn't feel my epidural... my contractions were so bad.. i was literally begging for mine lol not trying to scare you.. stick it out as long as you can without it but if you can't get it.. its great!!!
I couldn't feel mine either, the pain of labor was so much more intense and I was so focused on that that the last thing I thought about was the needle and I was focused on trying to stop the pain too
It only felt like a little pinch and poke when i got mine. I didn't ever look at the needle bc I think the fear of it can make you think it hurts more than it does. Keep in mind too if you're having a vaginal delivery you don't have to get an epidural! You can go all natural or they have pain meds that can be inserted into your IV.
I couldn't feel the epidural either. Then all of a sudden my nurse was like how's that contraction and I asked her what contraction. It was wonderful.
Mine hurt like hell. Wasn't worth it, I didn't think laborhurt enough to get it. Only got it because I needed to for my daughter.
I couldn't feel it, but my contraction were gone
Thank yall so much I feel a little better about it now.
I had one for an emergency d&c cause i was hemorrhaging with my first miscarriage. And I flinched when they put the needle in and they had to wiggle it to get it between my vertebrae. For me it was excruciating. But it was partly my own fault for flinching. And I didn't have it during labor so its not like the contraction pain overpowered the needle pain.
I didn't feel mine either I enjoyed it. It was just a pinch and that was it.
