What did you do during labor to help you ease your pain?
With my first I was pretty much holding on the the bed so hard I could feel my nails digging into my palm until epi was given to me. Then I was able to talk and relax. I was induced and pain hit me real hard and the intensity of pain took me by suprise.
With my second, I didn't even know I was in labor until my contractions were 2 min apart! I had a shower, I walked around and was able to talk and laugh with my hubby in between contractions.
I find walking around actually eased the pain a little and lying in bed was more painful.
