Is there any other pain meds beside the epidural that you can get while in labor?.

Its called demeral and stadol.. They give it to you in your iv.. It don't stop the pain.. It just takes the edge off.. It wears off fast.. I had it and it last an 1hr but I was hoping it wouldn't last too long since I wanted to go as natural as possible... This time around I'm not getting it unless I need to.. Ask your doc and see which one your insurance will pay for.. I had stadol which is the generic brand and that's probably why it didn't last. I didn't want baby to be loopy or sleepy and she wasnt ..

Oh yeah.. I needed sleep so its a good alternative if you end up having your baby at 2 in the morning like I did...
