I really really NEED an epidual again this time......worried I will be to late! AIBU to ask for an epidual now at 5 months pregnantblush grin

What would you do? Run at the first sign of a contraction?

You don't know it won't take much longer. I have a friend who had a forty minute labour with her first and four hours with the second. You could consider a homebirth with pethidine? Midwives can administer that.

Listen to your body. You've done this before and are likely to recognise what the different stages feel like. Trust yourself. If you feel you need to go to the hospital, go.

As for whether YABU to ask for an epidural at 5m...let me think...back-ache...varicose veins...SPD... Nope - YANBU. grin
