Re: Help me solve my dilemma--what would you do?
I've thought about unassisted, but with the shoulders being a tight squeeze both times, I don't want to take any chances.

You gave me an idea...perhaps a home birth midwife would be willing to come to my house for the birth (and one more appintment before that so she knows how to get here), but I can drive down there for appointments.
I'm also going to call the doctors around here and see if they have a cash price. The doctor might be more than I thought because the deductible needs to be paid each year, and I'm due in April.
~sigh~ Thanks for letting me vent my frustrations here.
