I was induced twice... LOVED my epi!! Never got any kind of an itch form it!! If you have certain things you want or don't want make sure you hubby/coach knows so they can advocate for you! Tell hubby just b/c he's a man doesn't mean he doesn't have to have a voice in teh labor and delivery room!!
During my 2nd I was progressing really slow and waiting for the epi... finally gave in and that allowed things to progress very fast at that point. So it's 50/50 on waiting as long as you can for the epi.

ohhh and if you have post epi headaches ask for a "blood patch" to fix it!! Simple explanation why... when you have an epi you puncture membrane that keeps the proper amount of pressurein the fluid sack around your spine/brain. If that pressure is off balance so to speak it can cause headaches. For a blood patch they take some of your own blood and inject it back into that puncture hole and it clots there. This closing the hole allowing the pressure to return to normal - fixing the post-epi headache. I never had to have it, but it was great knowing I knew just what to ask for! (I was told all this by a friend that is an anesthesiologist)
