I recently welcomed a brand new (as if there can be an 'old') nephew recently and I just feel the need to say....man, how did I come so far as a mom?!?!
Anyway, my sister in law went through an induced birth with the aid of an epidural and I was surprised to hear that it hurt enough to reduce her to tears.
The night before the birth, I gave a warning to them to insist on an epidural and any other forms of painkillers medically allowed because I went through induced labor delivering Kid 2 and I think the pain mentally screwed me for life.
Like it was an impossible amount of pain. The kind of pain that brings on visions of death, angels and the begging of an end to the torrential pain and you die and die and die all over again and yet you are still here and God hates you at that point....yeah, you get what I am saying.
So, apparently, either my sister in law has low pain tolerance or epidural does not help with induced labor.
Don't induce birth, my advice. No woman deserves that kind of pain. Unless the baby insists on staying inside your womb for 4 extra years if you do not induce the labor. Lol
Even then, I might even consider that extended stay inside me a welcomed idea.
It was THAT bad. Hahaha
Have a splendid evening, people,
