Re: Epidural?I didn't have one with my first pregnancy but it wasn't really "my" decision ... I was young so I did every thing the way my mom would have. I opted for an epidural for all my pregnancies after the first. I had no complications with the first epi other than prolonged numbness ... Couldn't feel anything while pushing and that was odd, but with Brenna's L&D, I ended up with a leak and some pretty nasty headaches before I left the doctor. I wasn't quite sure what they were for a while and then almost passed out when I took Brenna down to get her pictures done ... I ended up getting a patch to correct it, so it was like going through the epi procedure all over again.
