  • Let him go with her and you could use that time to relax and prepare 4 your new little one.

  • You might not have the baby for another 3 weeks. Let her take the 2 yr old if you're that concerned.

  • I don't know.

    I would be torn. On one hand if he's with her you don't have to come up with an emergency plan b and you'll have time to relax.

    On the other hand you won't have those last few days with JUST HIM before the baby comes.

    Weigh out the pros and cons and then decide.

  • Let him go..... You can use the rest, and if she's already the person that you're trusting to take care of him when you do have the baby, then there's nothing wrong with him going with her.... just in case. Plus 48 hours of rest will do you good right now.

  • Relax and take some rest time. That's what i would do.

  • I would totallllllly let the little one go with her. You will get to completely relax without worrying about a sitter for the weekend. Heck, I'd consider it a treat! Lol

  • Let him go with her...This way even if you don't go into labor you will have a few days to get things prepped around the house and get some rest for yourself. Believe me, you are going to need it! Good luck! : )

  • I would let him go with her. If anything were to happen then you will need him to be in a place that way you don't have to rush around in labor trying to find someone to watch him. I would just go do something nice with him before he leaves.

  • if she's willing to take him. let him go. that way you don't have to worry, if you go into labor while she's gone.
