I wanted to have my son naturally, but they told me I needed an epidural because my blood pressure went high. Then I had to get an emergency c-section because my son was trying to come out before I was fully dilated and his head swelled up. Needless to say it didn't turn out the way I hoped.

I haven't had a natural birth yet. However, with both of my births I found that as long as I was able to keep moving I could handle the contractions. However, laying in the bed for the monitoring every hr is what got me. For both of my sons I had to have the epidural stopped before I could push. So at that point I felt everything again. Once at that point my body pretty much took over. I didn't have that feeling with my first but with my second the nurse wanted me to stop because the doctor wasn't there yet. I told her I couldn't my body was doing it on it's own. It was a really awesome feeling feeling my body doing that. I would really reccomend getting a doula for your next birth. :)

I've had two natural births, one in the hospital and one at home. They were awesome. My first was an epidural birth but I loved my natural births way more.

Yeah with my first I got a dural I felt the contractions but i didn't feel when I pushed with my second one I got the dural as soon as I got there so I didn't feel any contractions but omg pushing her out hurt so bad I think dural wore out cause one of my legs were num and the other one wasn't. With my first I was in labor for a day and half and my second one only 8 hours. My doctor is inducing me the 26th of feb I hope Im not in labor for ever and the 2 things that scare me the most of going natural is that for 1 I might ripe to it will hurt so bad I'll pass out from the pain.

Because with both my girls my water wouldn't break on it's own so my doctor just wants to go on with it again witch I'm fine with because its only 3 days befor my actual due date.

There's no reason for your water to break on its own.  Your baby can be born without your water breaking. So it sounds like there is no reason for the induction other than your drs convenience?  I would say to keep your eye on the epidural. While its possible to have an epidural free birth, it won't be "natural" in the sense of the labor happening on its own. Induced births are much more painful and your movement is limited. Just lying in a bed with unnatural induced contractions is going to be very hard.  For a natural birth I would want to avoid unnecessary induction and be able to move around. Have you thought about using a doula?

I thought doula was a epeedural? What is it then? And honestly I want to be induced I am I'm so much I can't take it anymore so I'm happy to be induced. And not only does my water not break I won't go into labor period they have to make me go into labor. It's just how my body is.
