With my dd I labored till about 5 cm and then got the epidural. I planned the whole time to have it....contractions deff hurt...but I had back labor. I don't know if I could have done it; I think I have a high tolerence of pain.
Questions: my contractions, right ebfore I got the epidural, were 1 minute apart, strong, and i was 5 cm....do they get stronger as you get more dialated? Also..when you are actually pushing..do you feel like you are literally tearing? What if they have to do an episiotomy...do you feel them cutting you?
