I've done alot of research and decided that if I don't NEED the epi, I don't want to get it. DH & I have talked about it, weighed the pros/cons and he's totally supportive of whatever I choose.
I don't understand the need for everyone to keep asking me if I plan to get it, but this is what I've been telling them. I will decide when the time comes. Ok, I'll admit, I have a very low pain tolerance but most people aren't' aware of that so WTH?. Seriously, I am so sick of people telling me "Oh, you'll want it, trust me" or "You'll get it" or my personal favorite "why wouldn't you get it?! you're nuts." This is my first LO so who know how long it will take or how well I will handle it so I'm reserving the right to not decide until I'm there. Then the inevitable follows "you know there's only a certain window that they can give it you, right?" :sigh:
