I was only 1cm dialated and I couldn't take the pain so they gave me it so I don't see why not.
Bless ya. I had long labour and it is so tiring. Get rid of ur tears put some groovy music on and dance round the room like a loon. U need to keep ur happy up. Keep moving, take a walk to the shops for some Lucozade and some sweets. Keep busy and keep moving. Gravity is ur friend. Hope everything goes well x
Your body needs to produce oxytocin. As long as you are stressing and upset, you are keeping that from happening. Your body naturally produces oxytocin when you feel happy, relaxed and loved. I know you are uncomfortable, I've done this myself a number of times. However, you need to find a way to pull your self together and try to relax. Trust me, it will make labor and delivery far easier for you.
Go take a warm bath. Go get a pedicure. Do some last minute shopping with a friend or loved one. Go have lunch at your favorite place. Curl up on the couch with loved ones and watch a funny or romantic movie.
I promise, as soon as you release those stress hormones, your labor will start to regulate. Plus, stress hormones make pain hurt worse.
