    How long/soon into labour did u get one?

    I seen the anaesthetist last week at the hosp due to the apparent 14 attempts it took to get the needle in my spine the last time round-their conclusion was have it put in early on in labour as I waited 13 hours with madam.

    Just curious xx :hugs:

    I had mine at 6cm with Dior i went into labour at 11pm and at 10am i was 6cm, i heard they slow labour down but it speeded mine up loads 1 hour later i was pushing but i made them top it up just before i pushed, even though they REALLY didnt want to,

    i wanted on with Harley but i was 9cm so they wouldnt do it said he would be born bofore the anaesthetist would even get there

    Waters broke around 4.30 in the morning, had epidural around 11 in the morning. But they probably gave me too much as I just couldn't push, had no feeling.

    Well mine was preemie so they had been giving me all sorts of stuff to stop contractions (which wasnt working) and then finally gave me the stuff to start them up again which hurt like crazy. So they gave me an epidural quite a long time before he was born. They got it first try though and it worked very well...too well in fact. It was like four hours before I had even 75% of feeling back in my lower body:p

    I had mine as soon as they broke my waters at 2cm. I had been in latent labour for 2 days at this point! Jonny was back to back and I never progressed further than 5cm even on a drip so I ended up with a c section.

    I have no idea!! I remember not feeling anything when I got to push though. I had it in for a while, and had quite a few top ups.

    This is why the de-brief will be good!
