After a while of feeling a bit uncomfortable (mostly from the lack of not being able to stand up because of sitting in a bed for 3 hours) I decided to get an epidural. Was I in pain? nah. But I wasn’t going to risk it. The night was going so great, why ruin it now!? Our family was checking in on us every few hours and we were even watching some of our favorite TV episodes, like we had nothing more important to be doing… Then the labor really started, and I quickly became aware that my epidural wasn’t working. Something wasn’t right. My legs were completely numb, but not my belly or the “laboring half” of my body that the epidural was meant for…if you get my drift. Things went quickly from bad, to worse and I was NOT prepared for the next 30 minutes of my life…
