Have you had an emergency home/on the way to the hospital delivery?

I am expecting my 4th Child. My husband and I are very excited about this baby. I tend to have very fast labor and deliveries. I am sort of afraid that we might not make it to the hospital with this one. I am just wondering if any one has had an experience where a hospital birth was planned but the baby came before they could get there. Thanks for sharing with me.

I'm in the same boat as you. Not pregnant yet, but definitely concerned about my next/any future pregnancies. My first child was born in just under 5 hours (from water breaking/first contractions to birth) and my second was just under 4 hours (first contraction to birth). I definitely have concerns about actually making it to the hospital in time, especially since hubby and I don't drive.
I've heard of *accidental* home births and of car births, but never known anyone personally. I'm curious about this too and I'll be keeping an eye on this thread too :)

Congrats and good luck with the newest little one :)
