Thank you so much for the advice!  We are about 20-25 minutes away from our hospital.  I love the idea of making our way out there and hanging out until I feel like the time is close.  We did consider a doula, but they are few and far between close to us...so we decided just to rely on our 2 midwives (they are awesome and totally on board for a natural birth!)  I will keep all the suggestions in mind - thanks again, ladies :)
I am planning and praying for the most unassisted birth possible at the hospital with only our midwife.  She has told me to wait out my labor for as long as I can at home so the nurses won't pressure me into any medication if I come too early.  My question is how long should I actually wait?  I've heard everything from horror stories of women waiting TOO long and the babies dying before birth...to women waiting a few hours and only being in the hospital an hour before...
