Re: Am I terrible because...
Not terrible! There's no one right way, IMO. I've done both and there are definitely pros & cons. I had one with my first (after 16 hours of labor & only being halfway dilated), didn't need one with my 2nd, and got one with my 3rd/last (only an hour before she was born). With my 3rd, I felt like I had nothing to prove to myself anymore- I had already had an epi-free birth, and I didn't want the remainder of my labor to be miserable. I don't regret it one bit.
I say just go with the flow!
