  • i went all natural the only thing i had was the iv fluids to keep me hydrated my baby was 7lbs 3oz i figure they've been doing this labor process for all theese yrs w/o meds so y do i need them i will say at one point i was really thinking about the edidural but as late in the process as i already was it wouldnt have done any good anyway so y not just finish it and finally get to see your precious bundle and i would do it again in a heartbeat
