Okay, I have to say something again :) Yes, every woman can react differently from an epidural.
For me I always felt the urge to push. I could still feel contractions there was just no pain. I felt the baby coming out with all three and knew when it was time to push…with some women this hasn’t been the case but with me and my three and my sister with her four it was :)
It all depends on how your body reacts :)

I learned something interesting with my third birth. When you are put on pitosin (the drug form of oxytocin) to make your body contract (something that is done in inductions) then your body does not release the eudorphines that help you deal with the pain of labor--cool how that works, huh?
