The best parts for me:

Being in the privacy of my own home, where nobody is pressuring me to do anything I don't want to. And having DH beside me, believing in me, and not being brushed aside by hospital staff.

Not having my crotch on display for every doctor, nurse, lunchlady, and student to gawk at.

Sleeping in my own bed after it's all over.

Something stupid? I love using my own shower. I was a nurse on the post partum floor at our local hospital, and while I KNOW they clean everything - I couldn't help but envision all my past patients bleeding all over the place in the hospital shower. Maybe I'm a bit of a germaphobe. I REALLY, REALLY appreciated being in my own shower, where no other post partum woman has been before...and *I* know exactly how clean it is, because I am the one who cleans it!
