i asked for drugs straight away haha, unfortunately it was too late for an epidural as baby was on the way or something they said... pethadine made me wanna sleep and the gas didnt work, nothing worked for me but the relief came when the contractions began to subside as they do when it gets closer, they get less painful basically. i also didnt like the idea of a needle in my back being the epidural, all medications work differently for different people, we have pethadine here in aus and i do reccomend it as it numbs it for u.

you will want an epidural...contractions were painful for me and the went away immediately following the epidural....you can get Demerol if you need it before the epidural.

epidural is the way to go from what I have heard. But you have to make sure to ask for it early enough....sometimes they wait and it is pointless.
