Its dif for everyone. I didn't have a bad experience when they put the needle in it was afterward when my hip started hurting cause they were supposed to get me to turn over to the other side after a little while and didn't. A lot of people say it hurts to get an epidural, but getting the epidural wasn't what hurt me. Im going to try natural this time, I've heard its better cause you can get up and move afterwards and don't feel bad. The epidural does make your back hurt too when it wares off.
Thank you so much for telling me! That helps so much! I'm afraid I'm going to move when they do it because I've been told if you do that it could make you paralyzed but yiur story makes me feel alot better because if it's different for everyone this it may not be as bad as I think it is.im going to be praying about it for sure! Thanks so much again! God bless you and your family!
Getting the epidermal was cake lol worst part for me was after it was it with the bruising but it didn't hurt at all the contractions hurt worse so you won't even feel it lol
Ninaboo69 thanks so much! That makes me feel better about it! My due date is February 13th so it's going to be here before I know it! Thanks so much! God bless yall!
Definetly didnt hurt at all. They usually five it to you during a contaction. (contractions hurt like hell) so you dnt even feel it. Youre to busy crying about the contraction that you dnt evn care if someone puting a needle into you. Just follow directions dnt move and you will be fine. :)
I felt nothing but a bit of pressure during the insertion of the epidural. Many hospital use a local anesthetic to numb the area before the put the needle in. I did have to have it done twice because the first try wasn't in the right area, but it didn't bother me. I'm going natural this time, but the epidural wasn't bad.
This is my fourth child and I'm planning on having this baby natural again like u I'm scared of needles so I have done it natural all pregnancys do you breathing treatments it will help you with the pain and helps you relax
I was also worried about moving once the needle touched my back , but I didn't. It's a mind thing. It didn't hurt. And when it wore off I did have a little back pain but it went away. It wasn't a bad experience for me. You just have to have a strong mind and think positive and it will all turn out better than you expect it to be. Good luck!
Thank you so much everyone for telling me what you experienced! That was very encouraging and after praying about it and hearing your stories i feel alot bettet about it. I'm so excited for my little girl to get here and I almost have 10 weeks to go! Congratulations to all of you on your pregnancies!
