UPDATE! Info needed: Given pain meds to fall asleep during contractions?
The baby is here! She was born at 7:26 pm and weighs 8 lbs 3 oz. She is 20 inches and absolutely beautiful
My sister is 38 weeks. She has
beenhaving contractions every day for the past week. They are between 4 and 2 minutes apart. Her midwife gave her pain pills to stop the pain on the first day. They were so bad she couldn't move. They made her really our there and put her to sleep for hours. She stopped raking them because she didn't like the way they were making her feel. Last night, she lost her mucous plug and today she was having contractions that are 2 minutes apart. Her midwife wanted to admit her to the hospital to put her on am iv drip with some kind of medication to put her to sleep. This seems weird to me. My doctor never once suggested anything like that when I was pregnant. Is this some new thing or is it just weird?
