Did they give you nubain?

I HATED IT!!! I have talked to 2 other moms that didn't like the feeling either. When they gave it to me the nurse said I would feel a little light-headed but that would pass but it never did. It mad my contractions worse. It felt like ice was running through my veins, I couldn't stop shaking, got sick, and my baby's heart rate went WAY up. They had to put the monitor in me because I could not stay still long enough for them to keep the one on my belly. I was SO glad when the feeling passed, and I almost rejected the epidural because of it, glad I didn't.
Did it help with your pain? Did it make you feel weird, and how?
