I am just curious as to how you'll be alone if you are married.

this is my first pregnancy.  i have been told you will for sure know when your water breaks and when you are ready for labor.  as for taking care of the baby i think it is mostly instinct u will learn the difference in cries whether they are hungry tired or need to be changed.  mostly new borns eat sleep and poop.  i wouldnt worry to much about not having a midwife or ne thing your hubby will have instincts as well and there is always this site if you have questions such as the new mom group.

Sweety this site is mostly american women who will mostly deliver in hospitals and have been under a midwife or doctors care since we peed on a stick.

Only like 10% of women break their water at the start of labor. Once in labor you'll know because the pain will intensify. You can deliver your baby in the sac of water fine. Just burst it afterward. Some of the home birth mamas might be able to tell you what your birthing kit will need. You can google it as well.

You can still use veet. Sex is still safe. In a normal uncomplicated birth you will be fine to take care of a newborn, you'll be up and walking around within an hour of delivery. Since you have access to a computer google infant care.....

I don't know what else to tell you. I wouldn't give birth unassisted unless it was an emergency. You seem not to have had prenatal care or at least not a lot of it.
