Not all the way ready to start a big freak-out yet, but I need your help:
I am facing the possibility of a hospital birth with Continuous EFM. So the question is: How in the @#$% am I going to do this without an epidural?
My life has given me the opportunity to really know only 2 kinds of pain management: Moving and moving and backrubs and showers and crawling around on the floor biting dining room chairs...or spinal anesthesia.
I know epidurals can be really bad...I have already been there done that with my 2nd baby. And my 4th. But for Petes sake, does someone actually have any stories about sitting there in the bed and just going through that? Do I double up on the hypnobirthing? DAMNDAMNDAMNDAMN
I promise I will write more to explain what is going on soon....toddler beating the keyboard all day, bartending all night....dishes and laundry to the sky.....no time to blog! Ack!
