Epidural

I am due November 19 and I am getting very nervous for labor and I was just wondering if I should get the epidural. I have been considering it but I don't want it to harm my baby or it going badly. I'm just unsure of what to do. Please help me with epidural stories or stories on all natural births. I don't know what to decide on. :/

Ive had an epidural with all births of my children...the bad thing is it messes up your back :/ and sometimes it doeant even work. With one I ended up with only one numb leg and felt the entire birth and with another the dr wanted to make sure I "felt" my contractions so I could push. So it does depend on the anesthesia dr and your dr as well how much and how long they want to leave it in for and whether or not they want you to "feel" contractions at the time of pushing.
