For those that remember me, I'm expecting!! I only have a few weeks to go, that explains a lot of my absense (this marriage and pregnanct thing takes up a lot of time http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif )
But anyways, I have a little boy due in December and have had a wonderful pregnancy! Very little morning sickness and THANK GOD I am not big, I couldnt imagine transferring with a huge belly!

Theo, AD was a big concern of mine too, but it was no problem. They just gave me an epidural.

I heard about the showe but I didnt get to watch it http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/frown.gif I hear it was awesome!! (all those women are due close to when I am)
I will get an epi as well . . .my feeling fades really wierd, sometimes I can feel that close to my pubic bone and sometimes I can't, and it depends on if there's just touch or scratch, hot, cold, etc.
so just to be safe we are going with an epi, the anesthesiologist said he's worked with paralysts patients and epis before so that is a plus.

They don't give epidural to people who have had a SCI here. So I had to get a narcosis every time. I did not have a C-section because of my SCI but because my pelvis was too narrow.

Good luck with your pregnancy and all.

Yeah, they put an epidural in as soon as I was admitted but didn't medicate it until they started pictocin and again before they delivered via forceps. It was a very easy delivery.
