I can't find a way to word this without sounding like I'm critical. So please just know that I'm not trying to be critical or snarky.In what situation would DH need to make a decision between me and his child? In my head, I'm only coming up with Grey's Anatomy type of scenarios. I assume if there was such a scenario, the medical team would be able to provide some sort of analysis, advice, or prognosis to DH and it wouldn't come down to a 50/50 thing. I fully expect that I'm wrong here. I'm just trying to think about how this might occur.

Has anyone used laughing gas and would they recommend it? No idea where this belief/info came from, but I was always under the impression that anything short of an epi (shot, gas, etc) made you high but you still felt most of the pain. That could be totally wrong. I loved my epi so much because it worked, but I'm interested in hearing of other options.
Can someone direct me if we had a VBAC/CS thread? I have a lot of questions/anxiety over which way to go.ETA: fixing punctuation
Here's the pictogram of what I'm doing:

I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.
@notaplaya-justcrushalot so much this!!! I was in back labor for over 6 hours last time before I got my epi. In that time they gave me gas and the shot. Both made me feel loopy but totally felt the pain. I was slurring my words and cursing through the contractions at the same time. The only thing that really took the pain away was the EPI and it was a life saver. There is no way I would have survived the intense back contractions any longer considering my son was born almost 12 hours after my epi!!!
@kipperoo so right on the girl scout badge reference. Don't think I'll ever need one either:)
