What pain medication are you going to use during labor?

I just had my 20 week check up and I told my doctor that I really don't want to get an Epi because the last two times I have had reactions to it. The last time I got to the hospital after my water broke and I was 5cm when I got there. She suggested Stadol for the pain when I need it. Has anyone else used this?

I'm going for none this time. I really hope I'm strong enough to make it all the way without drugs.

HATED Stadol.  I regret every bit of it.  It made me loopy and way too tired.  I was asleep before contractions were over and woke up at the height of the next one.  It was my family's job to wake me up as the contractions were starting so it wasn't instant pain but that didn't always happen.  I look drugged in my pics and that is not how I wanted to remember it.  It didn't help with the pain but made me too loopy to really care I guess.  I was lucky that it didn't make my son sluggish at birth. 

I won't be taking anything with this next baby.  I only plan on using my concentration and the water from the birthing tub.

Since I'm having a C-Section I'm stuck with the Epidural.

 i had some stadol with my first, but the best thing i did for pain was to have a waterbirth with my 2nd :P the hot water tub took away 9/10th of the pain :D

I did it with no drugs. I don't regret it!
