If you planned a water birth...poll!

For our third home birth I am considering water birth. In the past I decided against because I felt like if I paid for the tub and accessories I was bound to use it. My first birth I got in our tiny bath tub but felt too restricted and needed lots of space for my pacing and big movements. With number two I early labored in the shower for a bit and it felt wonderful and then just could not find my rhythm or comfort zone during active labor. It was fast, intense and baby had a nucchal hand so lots of back labor. I think water would have helped a lot with her birth. So I'm weighing pros and cons and considering it. Take my poll if you planned a water birth, please!

ETA: I'd love to hear your experiences, too. Mainly, do you feel like being in the water made the pain more tolerable?
