Second pregnancy..want to go natural

Has anyone had an epidural for their first birth & decided to go natural for their second? 
I'm still in the research stage (only 10 weeks), but pretty sure I am going to go natural. My epidural experience was wore off & I could feel everything anyways until they gave me some stuff that made me loopy to get thru the pain because I was strapped down to an epidural that wasn't working:/ it just really has a bad taste in my mouth now..don't even want to mess with an epidural anymore! 
So any advice, tips, etc. would be great:) thanks!
