You're epi sounds exactly like what happened with mine with my first birth. I only labored for 6 hours on my own, though I was on Pit, before getting the epi and the other 8 hours I could still move both legs easily and my right side was the side the epi didn't work on. The left side was only partially numb, I just couldn't feel my hips aching any more. lol. So you did amazing! My second birth was a little over 4 hours. I'll tell you right now that a natural birth, especially one planned for, is 100% better than an epi birth were it only worked partially. I'm sure you'll do great and I look forward to following your birth journey!
