Csection vs natural!?

I am the mother of 1 daughter and 2 sons.... we are expecting our 4th and final child in Nov! My two oldest, that are 19 and 16... was born completely natural, no drugs, no epidural... nothing! Well I was only 17 when my first was born so the experience that I had with my first two, doesn't seem all that bad, that I can remember! My 3rd child is a completely different story! lol He is 5 years old, and I had him natural but I got an epidural... everything was fine until they gave me pitocin to help my contractions get stronger, and that somehow blocked my epidural and this was the worst experience that I have ever had, giving birth.... which makes me now terrified of labor and I am really wanting a csection! I know the pain is horrible after, but this is my last child, I want to have my tubes tied, during my csection... but most of all, I would love to enjoy the experience of actually bringing my baby into this world... I can deal with the pain after! I don't want to go thru the horrid labor, get an epidural and take a chance that it doesn't work like last time!! Has anyone else asked their Doctor to do a csection and tubal at the same time? I know it's been done, I've researched it, but I guess it's up to the doctor?! I really have my mind set that this is what I want!!
