My little guy will be 33 months when my second little boy will be born.I don't want him to get overtired or fussy in others house, so I thinking that will be better if someone stays with him in our house while we are away for the birth. We don't have any relatives in town But a friend wants to fly out to watch my older DS while I am in labor at the hospital and then stay for several days after the birth. She can only be here 10 days. My due date is March 1. What do you think would be better 1 week before or after my due date? Since we are new to the neighborhood we have a few friends we trust to take care of our LO but can't exactly count on them 100% considering they have LO's, jobs, holiday travels/plans, etc. So I guess we need to find a couple babysitters that can take over at any given moment until our relatives are here?? Just curious if anyone else is in a similar situation and what options anyone can suggest.
Out of everything to be anxious and scared about with pregnancy/labor this is by far the one thing that sometimes keeps me awake at night!

If a second c-section works for you, it's your choice. I would find at least a couple of sitter options so that you know you are covered or ask a family member to come in early to stay with your son. My mom kept out older daughter while I was in the hospital having our younger one - I knew my family would come to the hospital after the birth to see us, my in-laws couldn't be bothered to come to the hospital for either of our children.
