Yes: There are pain medications that we can put into your IV to help with your pain. Depending on how long your labor lasts you may still be able to get an epidural.

Yes: Though a regional anesthesia is not a good idea, there are other techniques and medications that can be used. Ask to talk to your anesthesiologist as soon as possible once you get to the hospital.

What you didnt: Mention is what time it is now or if you are on one or twice a day doses. Thee is still a good chance that you may safely qualify for an epidural. http://anesth.utmb.edu/asra.htm.
