  • At 4 cm your water will most likely break and full blown labor will begin. Compaired to being induced this labor ought to be really easy for you. The meds they gave you will and usually do make you feel like that. Try and stay calm. It's almost over.

  • As long as you're relaxed your labor should progress nicely. The reason you are nauseous after the percocet is because percocet is know to cause nausea, especially in patients who have very little experience with such drugs.. You might not want to try narcotic pain relief, and use alternative methods for pain relief during your labor (epidural or natural depending on your preferences), because the nausea opiates can cause is unforgiving, and would make things a heck of a lot more uncomfortable.

  • You could believe or not still go another week or more like this. The good news is though, that when your labor does start, It usually ensures a quick labor because you are half way there.
