LOL You'd be surprised. :D My youngest was 10lbs 5oz. My cervix didn't dilate past 2 to 3cms' because of all of the scar tissue around it. Sigh.. it was very ironic and very frustrating! :)

I've never said I had an Epi. I had an IV with pitocin that I didn't know I could reject.

And I made sure to tell my doctor that I don't want that this time around. It just made me feel like I was gonna throw up.

:!::!:
I had some girl tell me she was too scared when she found out how I was planning to deliver. I was like, "wait... Your scared of labor-something that we are equipped to do, but not of a large needle in your spinal cord?!"
Made no sense to me.

I already have scar tissue galore and an incompetent cervix. The scar tissue was why i had such a long labor with my first. Now it's broken open, so the cervix got dumb and has no idea how to stay closed.



There are ways to dilate a scarred cervix without drugs or shredding, so I wouldn't mind that scar tissue holding tight for a while :) it'll be a miracle if this baby doesn't fall out.

Quoting wannaknow:" Any of you ladies ever had your husband/so/bd object to you having pain relief during labor? I know I ... [snip!] ... hit him for acting like a dick about it. He isn't going to change my mind, but it makes me feel bad that he thinks I'm a wimp."


i will personally slap him for you if you wish. YOU are the one having the baby. it's YOUR decision whether he likes it or not. if you can't take it then you can't take it. you are Not a wimp!! i already know i can't handle much pain and don't have a regret making the decision to have an epidural. he won't understand cause he's a man! lol!! if he knew what it felt like he would probably be ten times worse because men don't know pain and are overly dramatic. my husband is always telling me how happy he is that he doesn't have to go through it. haha. be strong momma. do what's best for you.

2 words for you....HELL NO....let my husband try to say a word about me not getting pain relief if I choose to have it....have him grow a watermelon in his stomach for 9 months then try to push it out of his crotch with no medication...a man would die...
