Could I do a UC?
I have wanted a home birth before I was pregnant with my oldest dd, who is ten. I could never get my dh on board. We have complications throughout pregnancy, such as early labor, early delivery at 35 weeks. With dd2 I had shots of progesterone from 30 weeks on to keep baby in, modified bed rest, gestational diabetes, along with early labor. She was born t 37 weeks with so much effort to keep her in. That baby was also born having breathing trouble, but to be fair, after my water broke no contractions for 15 hours and dr was concerned, I opted for pit so I would not have to have a c/s. I know the Pit caused trouble. I do understand where dh is coming from, but I'm so frustrated to have to give birth in a hospital again. With dd1, I was bullied by doctors to have an epidural and we kicked one dr out of the room and had another come in. With dd2, (my OB was fantastic! I have her now,) and SHE kicked the nurses out of the room since they were bullying me into an epidural. I HATE the idea of having to give birth in a hospital again. The closest birth center is over an hour away.
I am paying more money for insurance now, with the affordable healthcare just keep my OB. I can't change it obviously which is why my dh says there is no way we can have a home birth. I just keep thinking I should have a UC. I know it may sound crazy, but I am sure I can do this. I am a nurse, I can take neonatal CPR classes, and I feel like I can take care of myself during this pregnancy without the OB care.
I feel so upset right now about having to continue care. Lets face it, I go tell my OB I'm feeling great, she says OK, I'll see you in four weeks.
Am I crazy to consider this when I've trouble in the past? How do I convince dh to do this?
