Is Anyone Planning a Home Birth?

I just started my 14th week and have been regularly seeing an OB. My husband and I had also interviewed several midwives when we started this journey. After doing a lot of considering, we have finally decided on a home birth. My husband is (nervously) supportive. Knowing how cautious our midwife will be during the process, we feel safe doing it at home with an option of transfering to the hospital (10 min away) should anything unforseen arise. My husband's bigget fear right now is the moment when I declare "I can't do this anymore I want an epidural" and he is tasked with being my "sane" voice and reminding me that I can do this and this is what I wanted! We'll see. I have no idea what I'm in for... 37 years old, 1st pregnancy:smileyhappy:
