Drugs, epi, etc.

Will you be getting the epidural right away, or any drugs for the pain during delivery? Or will you wait as long as possible or just go without?




I will be getting the epi as soon as they will give it to me, and any drugs they will give me for pain. In fact, I can't wait for the epi, last time, it made me birthing experience so wonderful. I just hope I make it to the hospital in time for this one! Before I got it, I was literally throwing up every hour from the pain, my body does not handle pain well, and everything they gave me didn't really work. Once I got the epi, I took a nap, during labor! lol, and then just pushed for 15 min.

I've decided to go natural this time around. My first two kids, I had beautiful epidurals. The third I had a bad reaction to the epi so I went natural. Honestly, labor was awesome pain free but recovery was easier going natural. I'm hoping I don't wimp out half way through labor. I'm going to try to avoid the pitocin so that should help. 8)

I never had the pitocin, but I've heard it's very painful, I'm not planning on doing that either this pregnancy, lol.

I plan to see how it goes. i got to 8 cm last time befor I had the epi. And that was with contractions thst were overlapping eachother for my whole labor. If i have normal contractions with a break inbetween them I probably wont use pain meds. If they are overlapping eachother I will be getting my epi asap!

In the beginning of the pregnancy I was all about the drugs I wanted them now lol but for some reason when I hit 28 weeks I suddenly decided I want to go natural I don't know why but that's what I'm going to attempt. Wish me luck hahaha

I want to try an go drug free on my second. My family may think I'm crazy but I just want to experience everything during labor.
