Well as most of you will know I am planning on having an epidural and have been asking lots of questions. Well today I finally got to see my midwife and I AM NOT HAPPY!! She said I have to wait until I'm 4cm dilated for the epidural, and the best bit- it's not un-common to have to wait longer because the anesthetist is often busy. Also, apparently if you get back labour the epidural won't work, and it apparently often doesn't give a lot of relief, she said it only 'takes the edge off'. The only good thing she told me was that I won't have a full epidural, some lighter type,so I won't need a catheter. But I am now PETRIFIED. This baby is coming out! And it's going to hurt like hell. Yes I know it will be worth it when I hold him and everything but right now all I can think about is the horrific way he will enter this world!
