With DS I labored until a 6+ and was doing great. Then my dr told me they were going to break my water, and about 5 minutes after the anesthesiologist would be doing a c-section and would be unavailable for at least 1.5 hours. In other words, that was my last chance at an epidural. I decided to get one, and I swear this time I'm asking for one the second I walk in the hospital door. It was awesome! I could feel every contraction, knew exactly what was going on, my labor didnt slow at all, and I was a happy, mostly pain-free girl.
But, keep in mind that labor comes in moments, not all at once. You don't need to know what you are or aren't going to do; take it one step at a time. You'll do fine.
