I had my consult with him and he seems great!!! I know he'll stand by what he told me and won't force anything I don't want on me. We discussed no IV and only intermittent monitoring and he said that was fine. He has even set up a policy at this hospital for a water birth, I have to bring my own tub and set it up myself but I could have the water birth I want. Now I just need to convince dh that setitng up the pool and taking it down isn't a big deal. I am going to use him for my delivery. He did say that he will be at the hospital when I go into labor (probably in the room with me) because my last labor was so fast. I am actually excited about using him.

Oh and after we talked he gave me a quick u/s he said he thought he saw what might be a penis but he isn't too sure at this point so I am not counting it as it yet. I am kinda excited that it might be a boy though because I have 3 girls.

Sounds great! You should definately get a birth tub, and since you have had quick labors- it could be important to have it blown up beforehand

I am not sure I could bring the tub in blown up or not I am not sure I have the room to transport it that way.

well, you could probably 1/2 blow up each layer. I just know from experience that the fishy tub (best birth tub ever!) takes about an hour to blow up completely with an electric pump. And it takes a good 1/2 hour or more to fill.

Hopefully you'll have just enough time! Other good things to remember are a hose connector, a garden hose, and a thermometer so you don't have to use the hospitals. The water should be around 98-100 degrees, but not more.
