So when I had my first baby I remember the doctors telling me I couldn't get the epidural cause of my blood? Idk I can't remember what they found I was in pain & not paying attention. Has anyone experienced this? I ended up having a c-section & they knocked me out... My recovery was awful too  all I remember was them making my mom sign a paper for permission to give me the epidural but there was going to be complications.. I also had preeclampsia, after that experience it made me not want to have kids anymore, I'm afraid I might have them that way again..
