Epidural or Water birth? — The Bump
17 Weeks Pregnant

Epidural or Water birth?

This is my first pregnancy and I am almost 18 weeks pregnant. I am 5'3 tall, and I was 118lb before and 128lbs now. I am a little worry about I will have complications delivering on my own. 

I have heard so much painful stories about long hours labor and delivery, that's why I am considering epidural. But, I also worry about epidural will slow down contractions and end-up doing c-section. On the other hand, I also know that water birth can help soothing the pain and speed up the contractions. Is it a good idea to do water birth on my first pregnancy? 

I am very nervous and stress about the method of delivering my baby. Any suggestions and/or experience to share? Thankssss
