So I went all natural with my first son, and got an epidural with my second son. I also was scared! I was having back labor and when I finally got the epidural, I was already 7 cm!! I remember crying, not because of the labor, but because I was so afraid of the needle, haha! It's really not bad though, I promise! they numb you in the spot first, and then you can't even feel when they give you the actual epidural. I had no complications what so ever.. my husband and I were bored, we didn't know what to do with ourselves haha. I will say though, I have heard of the epidural making people nauseas or give them the shakes, and my mother in law swears she has vision problems because of the epidural, but I say if you want to do it, you go for it! I had a great experience!
