Those with children already and no family around.....
What are you doing with your older kids whilst in labor?
My main plan of having my step mum come here is looking unlikely as well.... she never talks to us This was my favorite plan as meant my son would be at home is his usual surroundings making it more comfortable for him. Sleeping, eating, playing you know anything really with mummy gone (we've never been apart over night before i went in at night with my son and of course its a possibility)
Plan B is him going to my friends house but this was more of a daytime plan not really an overnight plan as such as she has a 6yr old and 9month old.
Right now im feeling a bit lost.... for me my son being in our home is the best option but looks unlikely atm.
I am VERY stressed out about this and more than anything else am scared about going into labor purely because of my son
So those who already have kids, but no family around like ourselves what is your plan when you go into labor for your LO's????
Hmm, that is a difficult one is there any chance you can reach out to your step mum and ask the question? That way, you'd know one way or another if that's an option. If not, I'd say you will have to rely on friends or a baby sitter? I can understand not wanting to have to take your son somewhere but unless you have a friend who can come to you, I guess you'll have too. Kids are resilient though, he'll probably love a sleep over with your/his friend, especially if he gets a few treats and made to feel special! And once baby arrives and you are all sorted, then your OH can be the one to look after your son if you have to have some recovery time in hospital!
It'll all be OK, just good to get a plan in place so you feel less stressed and worried about it I think
