I'd love to hear from mothers who have had both an epidural and an unmedicated labor. I had an unmedicated labor with my son and, to be honest, kind of dread doing it again. Wondering if anyone out there actually liked the epidural better when comparing the two. I'm 37.5 weeks pregnant, just lost a huge glob of my mucus plug, and had a precipitous (under 3 hour) labor at 37 weeks with my first, so may be dreaming that an epidural would actually be an option or that I will get to read the responses to this post!
