at my hospital I am having an "Unofficial" water birth with a midwife - what that means is technically in the state I am delivering in babie's can't be born in water, but my midwife group doesnt make you get out of the tub ... and the policy for my hospital for pain meds is that you absolutely cannot have any if you want to stay in the water. Not even a shot of stadol or something. The second anything goes into your body other than fluids, you are out of the tub permanately. I would ask your hospital what their policy is though because I am sure it varies from hospital, especially since you are in Australia and I am in the US

btw welcome and congrats on your pregnancy
Have you not seen a doctor at all then?
