I found out yesterday that I am 3cm dilated and effaced and have lower back pain, etc..I am 37 weeks pregnant. Dh and I are worried about labor coming and what we will do with our children if I have to go to the hospital. You just never know when labor will hit and then I will have to find care for them while I am in the hospital because my dh is working.
His parents are more than willing to fly here and help me with the kids my last weeks and also will be here to care for them while I am in the hospital. We have asked my mom if she can come early and she cannot. His parents are the only people that can help us. So I told my mom we will have to call his parents to come into town early. This means that when she comes (which is later) they will be here in our house. My mom wanted to be the only one in the house and didn't want to have to be in the house with his parents also. I told my mom I;m sorry but we didn't expect I would be progressing like this and we need them here because they are the only ones that can come early and help us. My mom says we should have just found a babysitter and not had have them fly out here. I was irritated because my mom's only reason for this is so SHE doesn't have to see his parents while she is here, when she does come. I wanted to tell my mom that it isn't all about HER..it's about me! I am the one going into labor, these are our children and I cannot just find a babysitter to stay in our house for 3 days while I am in the hospital..it's not that easy.
So now my mom is being all weird and saying she doesn't know if she even wants to fly out here. The thing is, we paid for her plane ticket already and she basically wants us to eat the cost because she is too selfish and anti-social to come here when SHE planned because she doesn't FEEL LIKE being around his parents. Is she right in her actions?
