On Augusst 15th, I got contraction pain around 4:30 am. We waited till 5:30 am and left for hospital. Finished all formalities and got into labor room/bed by 6:15 am. Labor pain was so severe I could not tollerate and cried loudly all time. By 6:45 am I took low dose epidural to bring end to contraction pain. By then, I was dilated 4 cm. We waited till 12:00 pm for 10 cm dilation and started pushing. Because of low dose epidural I started realizing contraction pain again but it was manageble.
I had to push hard for 3 abd half hrs and deliverd baby Krisha around 3:45 pm. Baby was in postirier position that's why it took long pushing hrs.
Side effects of epidural included: I was unable to move my legs for couple of days, my baby krisha was drowsy for 36 hrs and continued back pain for few days. Everything got back to normal in around 10 days.
