    he staying away for work next Wednesday (9th) and I'm scared incase I go into labour argh! he told his bosses he needed 2 be as close 2 home as possible from beginning Feb to the big day but then he tells me this!! We live in South Yorkshire and he gotta stay in Hull, and I am guessin its about 1.5hrs away :dohh: The thing is I will be completely on my own, it's just me, him and his mum who live round here and his mum also works away on Wednesday nights, my family live in East Midlands, 40+miles away so no1 will be able 2 get here in my hour of need, and its just my luck I'll go into labour when I am alone... :cry:

    And to make matters worse, my mum starts her chemo on the same day and I am gonna be sat alone all day and night worrying about her too ...

    Dunno why I posted this thread just needed 2 share cos I'm scared lol...

    Well once contractions start, just call your hubby and if it's a 1,5 drive, he'll make it on time !

    I kind of know how you feel... going away for a couple of days and am terrified I'm going to go into labour and not have him there! I'm sure it'll be fine and probably won't go into labour until after 40weeks lol but I'm still worried! Hope your (and mine) LO stays put :D

    When you go into labour it usually lasts for several hours. A lot of the woman on here are like, "I started getting contractions, and then went to sleep for 4-6 hours and when I woke up they were fairly close together, so after about an hour I went to the hospital..." So you should be okay! :D

    It takes my partner at least 90 mins to get home from work everyday and my mum is about the same distance away - calling as soon as contractions start is the plan sadly :/

    Hugs but please don't panic.

    My DH works 2.5 to 3 hours away and he'll be getting a phone call as soon as I suspect that I am in labour. The one piece of advice I have been given by the hospital MW is don't come to the hospital too early so I'll just have to calm myself until he gets home!

    My OH has gone to Austria until Friday. I'm just keeping my legs crossed till then because he's 2 plane rides away. Chances are I've got a couple of weeks left anyway, but I know how you feel the stress of him being away will have me analyzing every little ache and pain! When I'm 39 weeks he's going to Sheffield for the day, which is a 2 hour drive. This is my 2nd baby so that might be cutting it close! Big hugs and try not to worry to much! Xxxx
