Induced due to HELLP, so I can't say unmedicated or 100% natural, but I went pain med free....next time assuming my body is a little better behaved it will be 100% natural hospital water birth (what this one was supposed to be!)

I'm not voting in this poll cuz I always have a hard time with these kind of questions, is it unmedicated if you had pitocin? All 4 were vaginal births, 2 with epidurals, 2 without, and no other kinds of pain meds either.

Vaginal birth-17 hours. I wanted to try to go as far as I could without any medication. I made it to 6cm then had the epi.

Vaginal / un-medicated (I was 8cm when I got to the hospital so I had no choice but it had been my original plan not too)
Had back labor for 8.5 hours (wasn't horrible till about the last hour when transition hit and I couldn't stop puking) and I pushed for about 30-45 minutes (pushing felt better than the contractions).

I was induced (with cervical gel) due to IUGR and my own kidney problems.

Ended up getting gas, nubain (I think) and an epi..although the epi went in at 10cm..I just wasn't aware I was that far along when they put it in, so it was essentially useless!

Next time I'll try without any meds. It's a goal ..so we'll see!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
