The whole home birth thing was pretty interesting. And since you aren't really supposed to go to the hospital until you are 4cm dilated anyway, the whole pain thing doesn't seem like much of a reason not to do it. Sure, it gets some worse, but the natural endorphins and amnesiotics your body makes really work pretty well. It hasn't even been 24 hours since it was over and I've already forgotten how I wasn't sure I was going to survive. :-D The being able to climb into your own bed after 48 hours of contraction caused sleep deprivation, (I learned that I am perfectly capable of sleeping for 5 minutes between contractions spaced every 7 minutes though,) is great, even if you were just sutured up on that same bed an hour before.
