So i know this sounds kind of crazy but I guess i feel pain differently then most people... the whole kid coming out of the vagina and tearing and contractions don't scare me.. and as of right now i feel like i've had worse period cramps... I'm like a week away and i'm sure there is a possibility that it will hurt more then I think but thats not the part i'm scared of... I'm so scared of getting an iv put into my hand or something.. and i'm a freak when it comes to needles.. like if the epidural is as great as they say i'd love to have it but the idea of a needle in my back makes me want to go back 9 months and make him put a condom on... but basically has anyone or do you know of anyway that they will like sedate you just to get the iv into your hand or to calm you down before they start anything else...

Try to get some info and support-- knowing that you don't have to suffer through childbirth!
You don't have to do anything you do not want.
If you choose to have antibiotics this is something that you'll have to work with. But you certainly don't need to do this if you'd rather not.
For many reasons I know I would refuse an IV in labor.
