I had an epidural with my first. It allowed me to sleep for several hours, up until it was time to push. While i was pushing, I could still feel the pain from the contractions.
Afterwards, I did not have any long term problems related to the epidural, but I did notice that my recovery from birth seemed to take a lot longer than it did with my second baby (drug free birth). For example, I remember it being harder to move around, get up and down, etc. Also, my first-born seemed at least a little sleepier than the second after birth.
