I live 4 hours away from my mom, the next closest person is my sister who is a good 6-7 hours away. by the time i call that i am in labor and they get something together and then start driving we are talking at least 6 hours for mom and 8 hours for sister to get here.
I have a 15 month old daughter that needs to have someone look after her while my husband is in the delivery room with me when I go into labor. I am due Sep 30th. I just packed my hospital bag and will sometime in the next week pack a bag for my daughter cause I still do not know what is happening with her.We do not have any friends where we live, we have only been living here 8 months and the only people we know are my husbands coworkers who have come over for dinner and we have gone to them for functions. There is one couple that works with my husband that my daughter really likes, it is apropriate to ask them to watch her untill my family gets here?
I was going to have my parents come during my due date. Unfortunately, I went into premature labor, it was sleeting outside, and I live on a mountain. I had to call 911, my husband and my neighbors, all while trying to maintain calm for my daughter's sake as I was bleeding. An ambulance came, my neighbors showed up and took over the care of my older daughter, and my husband met me at the hospital. The planning didn't amount to anything. If I knew then what I know now, I'd have had a contingency plan ready for an emergency. In the time between now and your planned delivery, get to know the people you think you'd trust to care for your daughter. Discuss plans for emergencies like we faced. I wish I'd had a plan, but who expects the unexpected?
