Tell the buggers not to turn it off when you go to push!!! I'm sorry I've had 6 babies and a couple of epidurals and let me tell you pushing them out and crowning are the most painfull things in birth as to being scared,well educate yourself,don't listen to horror stories and just remember it will all be worth it! :lol:

I am new at this too. My due date is June 6,2006. Is the pain medication the way to go? My husband wants me to get the epidurals. But I don't know if I want to.

I have heard alot of "good' things about epidurals, but I am just deathly terrified of needles, so I would rather take the pain of crowing and whatnot, and leave the needles out of it! :?
