Just stay calm, take deep breaths and do what you can to relax. Watch a movie, go for a walk, anything that will get your mind off of the contractions. If you took any birthing classes you should use techniques you learned to help you cope.

I didn't get the epidural while I was having my son it was terrible and I was having back labor, holding a pillow and gentley bouncing helped alot.
