I had an epidural and would have no issue having another one next time. It doesn't make me any less of a mum because some of the birth I didn't feel
    No I totally agree, I don't feel like a martyr for not having an epidural and I don't talk about it much but prior to giving birth I got annoyed about ppl telling me what I would and would not do. I certainly don't think ppl that do are any less or more of anything

    Welcome Becca! Allison is beautiful! I really wish I'd has newborn pics like that done. Didn't even cross my mind until it was too late, they're so lovely. I hope you avoid a hospital stay!

    Toni, Mesa is gorgeous. It's great you're managing to bf so far. It's so bloody hard at first. Especially with another child to think about and look after!

    Re. The pain relief conversation. After the trauma of Meadow's birth, the sudden vacuum and forceps with no time for an epidural, I am seriously considering it for #3 if it happens. It's unlikely that situation would happen again but I've now had two complicated births (the last being absolutely excruciating due to the instrumental delivery) despite being prepared for natural and I'm not sure I could take that pain again!! We'll see. I think I would go in with an open mind and just have the epidural if necessary, if there's time! I'm not keen for gas or pethidine though as I'm afraid of getting sick (my phobia coming through). I refused morphine after her birth to help me manage with the pain of the tear until the surgery could be arranged for that reason too. Although I would love my third and final baby to be born the way I want, not all this complicated stuff, but it might be unlikely. Anyway after that rambling my point is that I'm open to an epidural now and completely understand why people have them. Would not judge a woman for that decision.

    I had gas and morphine. I wanted to go natural but my 7 hour labour was so intense. I screamed for an epi but it was too late. After I had DD my placenta wouldn't detach and my uterus wouldn't clamp down so I had to go to theatre to have it manually removed and had to have an epi anyway.

    Welcome becca. I hope feeding improves. it is Damn hard! Had that issue with River, wouldn't attach, wouldn't stay awake, my supply didn't come in. Hope it's easier for you.

    J Lucy is getting so big! is she still little on the charts?

    Pain relief I think should be people's personal choice. I tried the gas with River and it turned me into a space cadet and I couldn't figure out how to breathe so had pethidine. This time I also had pethidine I had very quick intense labours. This time the pain was mostly in the back and while the shower helped I couldn't stand in the shower the whole time. Epidurals scare me so wanted to avoid them for that reason.

    Pain relief - to each their own. I had none until they put me on synto and after 24 hours of labour it was such a relief. I fell asleep until I was ready to push!

    We are doing well. Toby is nearly walking - he will take 2-3 steps here and there now. He also says "duck" and "hello bunny" (to our rabbit). Can't believe he's one next month!

    My advice...if you want an epidural, ask for it early...before it is too late.

    Here is Lucy sitting on the letterbox. She is an eating machine now, I think she's on 30th percentile. She still looks little compared to others, but I am sure that will change!!
