Does anybody know? (Labor Related)

OK so when I gave birth to my son I did it all (almost) completely natural. I labored for a day at home and when I finally went into the hospital I was 8cm. When I got to 9 I was asked if I wanted some pain relief and I said yes.

I know it was administered through my IV and it worked pretty fast but I'm not sure of the name of it.

Does anyone have any idea? I'm PG with #2 and want to know the name of it incase I want it again.

 I think I had Demerol. It was either that or Darvocet. I don't think it really worked though.

When I was in labor, I had Nubain. You can contact the hospital you delivered at and make an appointment to see your chart, then you can look it up to know for sure.

This is what they gave me with all three of my kids. My first I went natural and that's all I had. I got an epidural with the other two tho lol. I got nubaine when it was still too early for the epi. My last child had terrible reactions to it when he was still inside me. It was so weird. They would give it to me and he would go nuts kicking everywhere so bad I was crying and his heartrate would go up to 200! Sorry for the long answer lol it was just scary and reminded me.

Wow.. That is scary!

I'm hoping I can hold out! I'm terrified of needles so the thought of an epi gives me a panic attack. Lol.
