I have had only natural births but am considering an epidural this time around.

I hate how it made me sick(upset tummy the first half and then throwing up the last half. Having to move my head to the side and threw up and get it all over my pillow and had to have that same pillow till the end. It hurt to threw up that way.), hate how it slowed my labor down and need pitocin, hated I couldn't move, hated I could tell when I had to push, hated I could help relieve my back pain, hated how I couldn't move afterwards without someone helping me sit up better. I hated everything about it and know what I know it can do to me and baby and things I have learned more about it after I had my second.

Never had an epidural with my vaginal births but I did have a spinal for my last birth since she was born c-section. My current pregnancy will be vbac and I don't plan on an epidural with this one either. No no no.

Paraplegic.

My epidural got messed up. I ended up having 3 of them before they got it in the right spot. I couldn't move my arms or legs. I couldn't move my head from side to side. I couldn't push to get the baby out. Normally I have a high toleance for pain medication, so this was new for me.  The good thing about it was I wasn't really in pain until she started crowning.
