  • Good luck! It could come anytime, but maybe you can will the baby to stay in till he gets home. Better tell him to cut the trip short though.

  • I don't know how likely it is. Have you been contracting since this morning?? Are they bad contractions?? If you aren't noticing them I wouldn't worry much. If dh misses it there's not alot you can do about that. He needs to work and the baby needs to come out. Worse case scenario you deliver with him on the speaker phone. If you want to try and stall until he can get home lie down and put yourself on bedrest. Don't get up unless you have to use the potty or grab a bite to eat. Good luck!!!

  • Good luck. You can express your wishes to your OB, but if the baby comes before your husband gets home, have someone record it.
