Did you live in the east mountains? We drive by a house all the time that always just looks like a ton of kids live there and I always think of you for some reason lol

It's great that you have a backup plan with the ambulance; that would take some of the fear out of it for me, also.
True. Even my midwife said whether we plan a hb or not, not to leave the house if the weather is bad because she doesn't want baby born on the way!

Staying in a motel if the weather is bad is a good idea! The only problem I see with that is then we would have DD with us and I haven't decided if I will get my mom or someone to watch her while I am in labor or not.
