Hypnobirthing? What Say You?

I am just now starting to practice Hypnobirthing.  I've been listening to the Rainbow CD for the last few days.  I really like it.  Funny enough, every time I listen to it (from the very first time), I fall 'asleep'.  While reading the book, they said you're not actually asleep, but in a self-hypnotic state.  I noticed that when someone would talk to me, while in this state, I heard them clearly, and was able to communicate back without losing concentration.  I think this is great.  I have even been practicing in my living room with all 6 of my monkeys running around and DH practicing the guitar.  LOL! 

What I'm wondering is if there is anyone here that has successfully used Hypnobirthing?  What were your experiences?  How much did you practice (CD's and reading the book)?  I don't have the ability to take the classes (even though I'd love to), so that's not an option for me. 

I "tried" Hypnobirthing last time, but didn't practice at all, so I didn't do well.  Being 21 weeks today, I decided I'd better get practicing now.  :)  I'm really happy with what I'm experiencing, and hope all works well.  :)
