With my first baby I was induced with pitocin drip after water leak and no labour at 39.6 weeks. Being my first baby those pitocin contractions got to me so I had an epidural.
My second since I had experienced the epi and pit I wanted to try to go natural. They had to start contractions with gel and I did ask for epi about 10 hours in (about 25 minutes before he was born) but my Dr stalled and I got the natural med free birth I wanted. pretty sure just transition talking as water finally broke and I was pushing in 5 minutes after this
My third was gel started as well and I went in 3 hours from start to finish. This one I never even thought to ask for any pain meds.
