I am feeling so blessed right now!!!  I posted a couple days ago about struggling with my lack of options with this pregnancy/birth, and not wanting a hospital birth again.  I have felt this really strong urge to pursue a UC this time (baby #4), which I've never come close to considering in the past.  I just truly felt led to this decision.  I was really concerned about my husband's reaction though, and if he would be supportive and on board with my decision 100%.  I prayed about it this afternoon, and then talked to my husband shortly after.  Without any hesitation or concern, he said we should go for it.  He said that we both know the drill, and he is completely at ease with it if it's what I want for this birth.  I was truly expecting the opposite reaction from him.  I thought for sure he would say no, and not even consider it. 

I couldn't have asked for it to go any better.  A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I truly feel free to have the birth that I want.... At home with just my husband and I, trusting in myself and my God-given abilities as a woman :) 

Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement :)  I have never been so at peace and so excited about birth!

Congrats on your decision!

Are you going to have a medical practitioner handle your prenatals, or are you going to do them yourself?

I've decided I am going to stay with my OB practice and just not say anything about my plans.  I want to have the reassurance of the visits (although still not as often as they typically do) to know that everything is well.  And a bonus to all of this is that we will be saving over $2200 with our decision.  That's huge!  Obviously not my main reason for wanting to stay home, but a definite contributer.  I truly couldn't be happier right now :)
