Good luck, mrs A. you've waited so long for this and I hope it goes well and you are holding your baby in no time! I went natural up to 9.5 centimeters- then the last of my cervical lip swelled creating a life threatening situation for both of us. So I got an epi then. I am proud of myself for doing natural (with all back labor- that stuff is EVIL) that far, but yes, epis are magical!!!! Enjoy this time.
