Now that's what I'm talking about! Good god, that must have hurt! You must just pass out from exhaustion at some point, right?
My husband enjoys doing an impression of me "sleeping" the first and second nights. (Happy slumber, sit up and scream, scream a bit more, stop screaming, lay down happily...) The nice thing about contractions is that they don't have any lingering effects -- they hurt like hell while they're happening but when they're over, they're over.
I went without drugs for the first... I forget... 20 hours I think, as I'd planned to have one of those "natural" childbirths, but by the end of that I was just so totally whupped I didn't have the mental energy for pain management and so went ahead and had the epidural. Much better after that, though still unpleasant in myriad ways.
