Wanted to update you all:
We had a very wonderful birth at the cottage. Labor lasted about 7 hours, and Wesley James was born at 9lbs! We did however end up having to go to the hospital afterall because my placenta wouldn't deliver. We waited 1 1/2 hours before heading in, but it just wasn't happening. When we arrived at the ER, they were all very polite and you could tell a little excited to get such a rare case in the ER. The staff were all wonderful and buzzing us with questions about the homebirth. We were admitted for 24 hours and I rested beautifully in the grand post-partum suite before returning home to the rest of the family.
Looking back on it, it was so easy to see the Lord's hand in it all and it all worked out perfectly. Thank you all for your advice and thoughts.
