Yesterday at my doctor's appointment, we were discussing what questions to be ready for during labor and delivery. DH cut in and said something along the lines of "she needs the epidural right?" Dr. said its up to me but labor sucks and since LO is looking like a 10 pounder with a huge head I should definitely consider it. The new dr. he is adding to the practice (who has had children) said "oh yeah you definitely want it". I realize my experience would be easier for everyone if I was not a mad woman but I feel like I have valid reasons for wanting to try without medicine, at least for a while.
Has anyone else felt pressure for decision making one way or the other during labor and delivery?
