With DD I had hoped to go natural, but I went in with an open mind. After laboring for 28 hours and being induced I'd had it and opted for the epidural. I had tried the tub, but for me it did nothing. In fact, the jets made the contractions worse.
My birthing hospital only offers walking epidurals, so I still felt plenty, including the contractions so I knew when to push myself without being told, but it was a relief from nothing at all. And I was able to get up not long after with the nurse to go to the bathroom.
I hope to go natural this time, but again, open mind!
