    I had a shot of pethadine with Nicholas, while I was still having the gas but found it didn't do a thing except making me drousy too. Next time I think i will just stick to the gas.

    Nic, I had something else for the c-sect pain and it was morphine based so probably not much different to peth when I think about it. Amy had an apgar of 9 then 10 and was very alert from the minute she was born so it didn't seem to affect her.

    I found with the peth, that basically, it just helped me recover from one contraction before the other hit, as I was more relaxed, I think the gas is just a distraction, well thats how it felt for me, and not much use when the cintractions hit pretty quick, coz you need to get a few sucks in before the contractions peak, I had no time for that.
