I waited til the pain was unbearable, which was 8cm for me. Sadly, most of it wore off by the time I had to start pushing

I got mine at four cm, but I was having really freaking long contraction. In the 100s on the monitor for over half an hour. He hit my nerve putting it in, and I have issues from that still. But it wore off about 6 hours later, and they came and gave me another one. It was lovely after that. I didn't feel a damn thing and I was too stoned to even realize that I'd just had a baby to be quite honest. They were like "Congrats she's healthy!" and my husband said all I had to say was "Cool" I only pushed for 13 minutes and she was out. Started at a -2, and they had OR prepped for me.

Oh not at all. I went in there knowing that I wanted an epidural. Most of it was curiosity, I wanted to see how long I could go without it.

I was in labor, contacting every 4-6min or less from Monday 1:45am on. I went to L&D on Mon afternoon but was only dilated a fingertip :/ On Wed I came back b/c I couldn't bear it anymore and they said I was an 8, and I panicked b/c that's past where my hospital would give you an epi. I originally wanted to go natural but SO was of so little help and I hadn't slept in days and I caved. I was actually only 6cm when I went in but it took me two days to get there and I couldn't handle it anymore. They made me wait a little longer, it was about 10am when I finally got it, Hoping to try natural next time. Mine was WAY TOO STRONG at 10am but by 3-something pm when I started pushing it had worn off so I felt the "ring of fire."

My water was leaking so I had to be induced. I went in at a four and got demerol around a six. But it wore off after thirty minutes and they said I had to wait two hours for more. So I labored for a few more hours before I had to have the epi, 8 cm dilated. My contractions were feeling like I would start one right in the middle of one, so it qas like a double contraction, which freaked me out! It didnt reach my right side until after I had her, and my leg stayed numb for like eight hours after I had her. The doc hit a nerve twice while giving it to me. I wouldve stayed on demerol if I couldve. I would def wait until its unbearable cuz yoy never know how long labor will be.

I would at least start with the demerol then, and see where it goes from there. I was really happy I got the epi because of a periurethral tear. Are you more worried about contractions or about popping the baby out?
