Hi ladies. I found out between my pregnancy with DS and this pregnancy that I have 3 blood clotting disorders. I was on lovenox in the 1st tri and am currently still taking baby aspirin. At my OB appt today, we discussed if/when to stop baby aspirin. My OBs are not comfortable with me stopping anytime soon, and I agree with them, however, that means I cannot have an epidural during delivery. I had an epi with DS, and although it didn't work well, it gave me some relief for a little while. I am now seriously terrified about labor. I feel completely unprepared to do this without an epi. I've never researched any pain management techniques because I didn't think I would need to. I feel very overwhelmed all of a sudden with the idea of natural childbirth. I will gladly take any advice. Thanks!
