well tha day finally came, i got my injection this morning and wow, let me tell you that it isnt real comfortable having 3 inches of a 4 inch needle pushed into your back. i feel ok right now but i think i am still a little numbed up from the local anasthetic.

My wife(5'2") had epidurals for both kids(9#+ each). No problems but I agree that they could use a shorter needle, or not wave it in front of you with a smile on their face before the injection.
