InkedMegs:Yeah... I remember that one stunning me, too.nbsp; I didn't even think about it being a possibility.nbsp; But it is what it is and if it means no or very little pain, I'm for it!
vindaloo:Didn't even feel it being put in, barely felt when they took it out. Certainly wasn't painful at all.
This. Plus, if your legs are numb, how did you expect to get up and use the bathroom. Your bladder needs to be as empty as possible when giving birth to allow more room for the baby to descend. The cath will be the LAST thing on your mind....trust me.
I didn't have one immediately. During pushing my bladder was getting in the way, so she drained it and then took it right back out. Although my epi didn't work all the way, I didn't feel the cath at all.
Plus, in the middle of all that was going on, it was not high on my list of things to think about. Don't worry! )

I had a catheter put in me once for tests on my kidneys and honestly it wasn't that bad and I had nothing when it went in and out. It was a little uncomfortable when they put it in me to begin with but there was no pain.
I feel like if I end up having and epi the catheter really isn't a big deal to me. At least this time I won't feel anything!
pamperedgirl83:if a catheter is part of getting an epi its alright with me.
No pain at all and I enjoyed not having to get up to go to the bathroom for 2 days. I almost cried when they took it out.
