Quoting Br%klyn:" I do want the epi, but I am terrified of needles and the drs making mistakes. I absolutely want to cry my eyes out when they put a catheder(spl) I just am becoming so scared of the whole process."
My best advice is dont think about it. Do whatever it takes to distract yourself and think of other things. Your going to have the baby sooner or later lol. No point in stressing yourself out about it now, because it wont change anything. Also if you do get the epi wait untill your contractions are all ready pretty bad before you get it. That way you wont even feel the needle. Trust me, when the time comes, you will be too busy to think about any of it.
