I didn't have one with my first child and was so happy that I was able to get up and walk around and shower immediately afterward.
I did cave and get one with my second child (I'd been in the hospital for an entire night for observation due to unexplained bleeding, which led to an induction due to the onset of high blood pressure and even though they removed the Pitocin once my water broke, the contractions were still WAY worse than I remembered from the first time around and plus I was exhausted from having had NO sleep the night before. It was NOT an ideal situation) Anyway, looking back on it, I really wish I hadn't had the epidural.
