Quoting Monica.:" they prefer you have one, you can't get up if you have to pee lol"


You can't feel the need to pee even, and it's better to have an empty bladder.

I seriously think you're insane. I would not be on pitocin ever again. Even if you paid me.

I never had any non pitocin contractions so I have nothing to compare to, but I was expecting wayyyy worse from what I read on here.

They broke my water after being on the pitocin for less than 2 hours. Wonder why they waited?

Quoting Mama Bird ♥:" Do you have to have one? I mean, im shooting for an natural birth. But I wanna know what I can get done if I cant handle it lol"


This is what I have been wondering! Some women around here have said they had one, some didn't. I'm wondering if you HAVE to have one. I really don't want one. Reaaaaaaaaally don't.

I had epis with all three of my kids, and with the first two, they did the balloon catheter(the one that stays in), but with my 3rd, she did the quick one because I was progressing extremely fast, even with the epi.

I'm not sure if you "have" to have one but I think it's highly encouraged?? I can't remember. I just did whatever the hell they told me to with Landon's labor lol I was 18 & had no clue of anything!

At my best friend's second birth they didn't give her one. She had a midwife though, but in a regular hospital setting. She didn't pee herself either.

I had a midnight induction (not cool) so I think they just waited til the doctor came in the morning to do it.

I told my doctor no pitocin this time, just because it was useless to me and I dont wanna mess with it! Breaking my water sent me straight into labor so if anyone wants her out, they can break my water and she'll come rushing out!

Ohhhh that make sense, my drip was started about 6am and OB came in about 8am.
