With DD1 I was given Nubain for pain management during labor. My experience was awesome. I have had bad reactions to pain meds from other surgeries/procedures before so I was nervous how I would react to the Nubain. I am scheduled to be induced on Monday and my doctor informed me that our hospital has been short and is currently out of Nubain and they would mostly likely sub Stadol. I have heard bad things about Stadol, like it makes you feel loopy. I am hoping that I can tolerate labor and not have to get any pain meds before the epi but just wanted some insight on your experience. Also I was not induced with my first so not sure what to expect pain- wise this time.
