hmm I'm not sure about half a dose of epi. Maybe someone else can chime in on that one.

I know that they can cut it down or off if you ask. Can't remember which one or both though. I know that if I do end up getting an epi this time that I'm asking them to cut it off when its time to push.

I agree regarding epis sometimes speeding up labor because of sphincter law. I heard this from a friend - once she got her epi, she relaxed and dilated.

I knew about sphincter law and was using Hypnobabies, so I was able to relax and progress very fast (water broke at 7 - unsure what dilation I was at - was in transition by 9:30 and fully dilated when we arrived at the birth center at 10:30).

It practically stopped my labor. So then I had to have pitocin to get it going again. Him being posterior wasn't doing me any favors either though...

I had an epi and for me it was great. I felt completely relaxed, no pain but I most definitely felt exactly when I needed to push. I wasn't "completely numb". I could still feel a certain amount of pressure minus any pain. I did push for 90 mins, which sucked but it was my first and he was face up. I feel like this one will go much faster based on what other moms have told me.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
