Epidural Or Not

I am pregnant for the first time and although I am only 9 weeks into my pregnancy, I already worry about labor. I know it is painful..I have been told not to use the epidural, that your body works better without it, and labor is over quicker.....what do you think?

My mother has given birth 7 times, she has only had the epidural 5 of those times. I was her first and she said the epidural really didn't feel like it worked. Her 7th child she used the epidural and she said she didn't feel a single thing.....but labor was long and hard, when she didn't have the epidural she said labor was ovre quick and it was easy.

I am pregnant for the first time also I am 5 weeks. I don't want to sound like I know everthing but I have been there for two of my sister in-laws births and one she got the epidural and the second she didn't. I personaly am going to try to not get it cause when she did the baby had problems breathing at first. they are both grown kids now and very healthy. I feel you should try your hardest until you can bare the pain anymore and good luck. If you would like to write me feel free I know a lot about this but yes I am scared too.
