Hi, my parents will either collect my lo from our house or nursery if it's a day when shes there. They only live 15 mins away and my backup is my sister who lives around the corner.
My lo has slept at my parents quite a few times so she'll be happy there for as long as needed. I haven't packed a bag for her because we use everything she'll need, I've written a list but they know her routine etc so can come here and do it themselves if I don't get chance x
I have no idea what to do tbh, our families live 3ish hrs away and don't drive and I don't really want them here for 2 weeks waiting till I go into labour, my friend has offered to have my DD but she's due two weeks before me so it's not ideal
I asked my midwife what her opinion was and her answer was have my DD on my own and my DH and DD wait outside?! Not very helpful lol
I'm not sure. I was hoping that my brother would have been moved before I give birth, since they're generally "evening/night" people and I know he'd watch our daughter without a doubt at any time of day. But since everything with him is being pushed back a month so they won't be here until August (and even when he does move here it'll just be his wife for a while now, who I don't exactly trust ).
OHs family is about 20 minutes from our house in the opposite direction from the hospital and everyone but my SIL and her fiance and SOOO unreliable, especially when it comes to ANYTIME after 3pm. I know my inlaws would "watch" my daughter if they had to-or at least my FIL would-but they'd "only be willing to do it at my house" if its going to take longer than 2 hours to give birth. And I REALLY do NOT want my MIL at my house at all, let alone when I'm in the hospital and she's bitching to her son that I "need to hurry up, bc Char wants her Mommy".
Usually my mum has my lot, but this time shes joining in the birth experience. So the mil is havin the younger two, the eldest is gonna stay at home with my sister in law (her own choice) and the puppy, as my mil wouldn't take the puppy too.
No idea how everyone's gonna get to everywhere, we're only twenty mins away from each other and hospital, but hubby doesn't drive. So I'm planning on driving the kids to MIL's and SIL will get a taxi probably.... I'm high risk so I've to go in as soon as I'm contracting, so should be ok driving....hubby's not convinced but not much else I can do really?!??!!
dont know ... no family i the area. mine lives 6 hrs and oh at least 12 hrs away ...
we are planning on inducing one week early, and family will then be here, but if he comes even earlier ... gotta make a list of friends who are okay with midnight housecalls... ours neighbors said we can always call them and they would take off work ...
