If you have not already you should consider hiring a doula, they could help you to find other methods of pain releif when you feel you might want to give in to an epidural.. sometimes our brains are not working all that clearly at that moment and you might be able to utilize a woman who knows what it is like and who isn't in pain at the moment to give you some encouragement and help you to find new measures...?
AND... incase you are not familiar with what doulas do they are not to try to get you to have the birth THEY want... they are to assist you, and just like any OB if they don't support you then they are not worth hiring... so basically if you say "I may want an epidural" she should support that.
