I live on an island with no hospital, so homebirth is pretty much the norm. So, we'll have a homebirth with a midwife, I'll make sure to have a doula this time, and I'm also hoping to give birth in the water.

Also I do want the epidual.. I have had such severe cramps and period pain the past 10 years ( the drs tell me its the same as going into labor every month) but without getting a baby at the end, ( but I have nothing to compare it to so who knows) that I just really want to minimize the pain! And i know there is going to be alot! Although the thought has crossed my mind that if I can handel it monthly I could do it one more time... so I will cross that path when i get there....

You are right on!
I didn't know any better at the time, and it wasn't any worse than the cramps I used to get with my period. So, I too would recommend reconsidering the epidural! You can do it!
