I was talking to a friend last night about this. She's had 2 NCB at the hospital I'm delivering at and she says as soon as you get there they try to force you onto continuous monitoring and you actually have to have your doctor tell them that you don't need it. For her middle birth, her only non-NCB, they convinced her to get on pitocin to speed up labor, but ironically, it ended up being her longest labor. She said once the doctor tells them to just let you labor as you wish, and just check periodically (or when she wants to be), then they leave you alone. So I think when we're on the way to the hospital I'll call my doctor and have her call L&D to tell them to not bother me, then I won't have to deal with it at all
