That is the best advice I can give you. When I was pregnant with my son, I was bound and determined to go natural...absolutley no epi! Yeah...well, my labor was fast and intense. I caved fairly early and went with stadol (sp?). I thought that would be all. Then my son decided to be stubborn and come out as a "star gazer," facing the ceiling instead of the floor. That can be really painful, and you get a lot of back laobr. I finally, after talking with my nurse (who was a god send btw) and my husband. The epi was simple and it helped me relax enough that my son turned around on his own and we had an easy delivery.

Don't be afraid to take the epi. I was glad that I didn't get it too early on, though. That way, I was able to keep moving around. Just tell your doc that you want to be kept aware of when the window of opportunity is closing! Haha!

Good luck. I know you will be fine. Women are a lot stronger than we are given credit for!

I got something they called a "walking epidural" which enabled me to walk/move around... :D
