I was in your same situation not too long ago. My second baby was at a birth center and was a waterbirth. As soon as she was born I couldn't quite figure out why I went there instead of staying home. So when baby #3 came along I just went with a homebirth and I'm so glad I did. It was wonderful! The birth center actually closed soon after Nola was born so my only option for a waterbirth was at home.
I can understand the hesitation, but I'd maybe sit down and figure out what exactly is making you hesitate, then call and make an appointment with a midwife to go over all your questions/concerns.
How does your husband feel about a homebirth?
