Tuesday Debate- a day late!

I'm late. I know. I'm sorry. I'd like to say it won't ever happen again, but then we all know that would be a huge lie. Believe me, Karen will give me enough heck for all of you! :-)

So today's debate centers around drugs. Yes, I said it.  But what I'm talking about here is the kind that (at least for me) brought some semblance of sanity to the birthing process. Say it with me now . . .  epidural.

There are many women who will and many women who won't.  I made it perfectly clear to my husband and doctor that I WOULD be having the epidural despite my queasiness with needles. And then I heard it from all sides . . . why I should, why I shouldn't, what's going to happen to my baby if I do, what will happen to me if I don't. . . 

S0, pool's open, gang. Let the debate begin. . . to epidural or not?
