Hi lovely lady's ..... I'm 6months pregnant and my husband and I have been told to start considering weather or not pain relief will be used ! I'm not sure what in earth to do as I'm not to keen on having needles in my back just the thought of it makes me nervous ! But if I do get one do you loose all sensation in your legs and is it mandatory to have a cathader ? If so how long until it gets removed because last thing I want is having visitors and them seeing the catheder bag , what are your recommendations and experience when choosing pain relief ? , my 2nd dilemma is the question of who's going to be in the room whilst I'm in labor and giving birth , I've been thinking about it alot and I would love for it to just be my husband and I but I don't want to offend anyone especially my mum , I love her to bits but don't want her to see me in so much pain but I don't want to offend her ?! And if I did decide to allow my mum in how can I handle my mother inlaw because I don't want her their at all because I just find it awkward ?!
