I think for me it was just such a great feeling to know I trusted my own body to be able to handle it. I also wanted to be able to feel everything just to see what it was like. I'd heard so many stories, but wanted that experience for myself. I didn't want to be groggy and miss it. Plus, I wanted to prove to DH (the anesthesiologist) and myself that I COULD do it, and I really sort of wear it as a badge of honor now. It's not right for everyone, but for me it was great.
