hi. Ftm here. As i get closer to due date i am becoming more and more nervous about labor and birth. Ive had a spinal fusion in my lower back (L1-L3 to be precise). I have also had said fusion removed. I deal with back pain on a daily basis- so far nothing too bad throughout the pregnancy. Although im starting to feel the effects of carrying. I will NOT be getting n epideral. Not even going to try and the dr. Advises it probably wouldnt work if i wanted to. I feel okay with it. Until i reeeallly think about it and freak myself out. :S i also worry about back labor-- ugh
AM I ALONE? Anyone out there skipping epideral? Gone through labor and birth after spine issues of any kind?
