I had a spinal before my c-section, and when he inserted the needle I felt a lot of really weird pain in the left side of my back near where he was working.

I had an epidural. My lower back always hurts really bad for weeks after giving birth. it's probably not from my epidural. sorry I'm no help.

With DD, I had moderate soreness around my epidural site for about 6 weeks. This time I only had it for about one week. I think soreness is pretty normal, but a nagging pain doesn't seem right. It could be something totally unrelated- maybe you just bent over funny when you picked up baby? Hope it's nothing!

It hasn't been that bad today except for when I bend over, then it really hurts.
