OK, now I feel a little better about not getting that epidural with the twins.

But it's still pretty miserable to be on a pitocin drip with ruptured membranes and not have it. (At least I have a great horror story if I want to shock anyone. I had a great time with 4 women who had only had C-sections one evening....)

You had twins vaginally with pit and no epiduaral? Double wow.

I had pit for like, five minutes before I started pushing so it really didn't count.
