Thanks so much for your responses. I'll definitely bring some microwavable cloths & heat wraps, but will skip the electrical heating pad (I'm not sure my hospital allows it either). Yes, and my DH will be rubbing my feet and back, if he knows what's good for him.
I would like to have an epidural, but my blood pressure is very low and has been known to drop dangerously low, so it looks as if I'll be doing this naturally, whether I like it or not. MJ, I don't think the lamaze breathing will help me much either, as I've already had some pretty painful BH contractions, and all it did was give me dry mouth from all the hee hee heeing!
