My doc induced me this morning at 5:30am and I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl this evening at 4pm! I got an epidural- my contractions were definitely the worst pain I have ever suffered!m but the epidural took it all away sand numb me from the middle of my back to my toes- I thank god for creating the genius who discovered epidural!
I planned to get one eventually. I just wanted to see how far I could go w out one. (Like going to the dentist w out Novocain) Well, by the time I got to the hospital in the middle of the night, there was no time. So no epidural. My OB did numb me down there. So I didn't feel the ring of fire or the episiotomy. We have a happy baby boy!
