Epidurals are awesome

Slow going, but they’ve placed my epidural and upped the pitocin. I will never get used to having a numb butt.

In case anyone is curious, they have to place an early epidural because part of HELLP syndrome is low platelets, and if they go too low, they cannot place the epidural at all. And with a breech extraction in my very near future, that is just not an option. Seriously, Google breech extraction.

More to come!
