I was so tired at this point I needed something to take the pain away and allow me to sleep, so they advised an epidural. I was against having this prior to labour as I was worried about the side effects but at this stage I just wanted it to stop. I had to wait 20 minutes for an anaesthetist then when they finally came it took 3 attempts to get the needle in.
It was so hard trying to stay still so they could insert it when I was having contractions. Once it kicked in I was knocked out for a couple of hours. I only woke up because the pain came back. Tip: if you fall asleep with an epidural make sure someone continues to press the button every 10 minutes, it will stop working. Read more →
