Re: What Side effects did u get from epidural?
I think the shakes are common even if you don't get an epidural, I was in the delivery room when my god daughter was born and my best friend had the shakes too, but no epidural. I had an epidural and loved it. I had been in labor 12 hours before I decided to get it, and only because I was dialating very slowly and the pain was intense because I was on pitocin to try and get me to progress, I was only at 2 cm's after 12 hours and I hadn't slept in all that time and I just needed to rest. I was able to take a nap and within a couple hours was ready to push, turns out my body liked the epidural and it helped me dialate quicker than I had been doing without it. I had no side affects other than a bruise that I would feel if I leaned up against something hard. I think it was worth it and I will likely do it again for baby #2.
