Good luck!
I was the one more on the fence - and my DH pointed exactly this out. We've been taught that - oh the hospital is the safest choice - but it actually isn't. Something could go wrong either place - and statistically it's more likely in the hospital. I don't want to be in the hospital and have something go wrong - and think - if only I had stayed home where it was safer.
Here is the study that convinced me: http://www.cmaj.ca/cgi/reprint/181/6-7/377.pdf

good luck
