I'm going to wait as long as possible to go as well. That's because no matter *what* I say to DH, he is uncomfortable with having a HB. I think it's because I am going to have a VBAC, and it maybe scares him a little, you know, be at the hospital "just in case". He has kinda come around though, and said that *maybe* next time I can have a HB.

(I'm pretty sure in this context HB is homebirth, not hypnobabies... )
Thanks - of course! I had Hypnobabies on my mind I guess...
