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.
We all need to vent sometimes
My midwife actually flew to Missouri to help with delivery because a lady that she had midwived before went into labor at 36 wks and her current midwife refused to assist. She really didn't want to go to the hospital. My midwife made it there in time and things went great. For me it always helps to have faith, everything will always work out. I think you would be able to find a midwife to come to you(for extra expenses probably?). Hope it all works out in your favor
