Not me, I always went with a hospital. I've had some horrible experiences with IVs, though. (Can we say pincushion?) But otherwise I'm ok with it. My doctor is pretty cool, she mostly just leaves me be unless I ask her for anything more. I kick the nurses out. (: With my DS, I was stuck at 5 cm for 26 hours. I banned the number 5. If anybody even thought 5 I was going to rip their eyes out.

I woke up to my water breaking. Went to the bathroom because I felt like I had to poo. After a few minutes I got dressed in new shorts and laid back down. About a half hour later I yelled to my ex who fell asleep on the couch. He didn't wake up. A few minutes later the pain got rough for me. Between contractions I walked to the couch and woke ex up. He called for the fire department. We didn't have a car at that time. They came and delivered Monkey. We went to the hospital. That was 9 years and 2 weeks ago.

I decided to have our 4th baby at home, part out of necisity because we lived over an hour away from a hospital 28 miles up a dirt road.  I had a water birth and LOVED it!  The water seemed to make the labor more bearable and if I would have known what a great way that was to have our baby I would have done it with all the other ones.
