Medicated or Unmedicated Birth?

I keep going back and forth on trying for an un-medicated birth or just throwing in the towel and screaming "Dope me up asap!" I keep thinking that if I go unmedicated, then I really should have done something to prepare better... like a lamaze class or something. My main reason for wanting un-medicated is so I can still stand up and walk around. I remember with my son... I was a happy camper until I had to lie on my back with a bunch of monitors on. That seriously made it feel so much more painful and made me feel miserable. But then again, my last labor was 47 hours, and I don't think I can handle being in pain for that long again.
Are you doing medicated or unmedicated? If unmedicated, did you do any prep or classes, or how are you planning to manage pain? And, why are you choosing to do it one way or the other?
