You maybe asking yourself what type of pain medication do you want, if any during labor.
I know for me, I got an epidural all three times with our kids during labor, but the last time was terrible! I will not allow myself to go through the pain of that again if I can absolutely help it. They let all of them wear off right before delivery anyway, so it's only contractions pain you won't feel once it's in effect after 20 minutes. You'll feel everything else, unless they don't let it wear off for some reason.
After my first and second epidurals in 2007 and 2008, I have basically had back pain ever since. They tend to place the epidural in the same or right at the same place you had a previous one located.
Well, with my third epidural in 2015, it hit a spot and hurt really bad and had a terrible amount of pressure. I also puked a few times after that epidural, while the first and second times, I did not get sick.
I have no clue how it'll be with no epidural, but hey I usually get to 7cm and 8 1/2 cm without getting it, so I think I can get a few more no problem.
What was your experience whether you got an epidural or not?
