I had an epidural around 2 pm and started pushing around 10 pm. I was pressing the button for more medication but didn't feel any different.
During labor, I still certainly felt a lot. It was more than pressure, but maybe not "ring of fire". I was yelling from the pain (but I can be kinda a wuss). After delivery I was up and walking to the bathroom within an hour or so.
Looking back I'm trying to figure out if my epidural basically failed by the time I went into delivery. Any other similar experiences?
