I'm driving 40 minutes because the hospital near me is awful and the one next near doesn't have a good OB. My doctor is awesome. My first labor was 19 hours (that hospital was over an hour away bc I moved at 7 months pregnant). My second labor was 6 hours and only 3 of them in the hospital. I'm a little nervous about this one going really fast and me having the baby in the car. Riding in the car during contractions is pure hell. My doctor has just said I need to go straight to the hospital as soon as I go into labor.

18 minutes is nothing. I would definitely do that- heck- lots of people are at least 20 minutes from the nearest hospital and if it's in rush hour or an emergency you can always go to the other hospital if you *have * to but I'd rather go to the hospital I was comfortable with and take the small risk of having to end up at the other hospital than just plan for the hospital I wasn't comfortable with!!
