Im going to call mil since she is watching the kids, even if its a false alarm she can still come hang out, I.love my mil! start packing my hospital bag, then pack the kids over night bags, make sure dishes/kitchen is clean, vacumme and pick up the living room, kinda just make sure everything in the house is where and how I want it. Take out the carseats so I can put them in mils hummer. Call dh while cleaning and such. Take a bath! Once it starts getting intense I think ill probably take a few lol...

And yes, ill be on cm. Cm distracts me pretty good. I was on cm when in labor with my second lol.

What else could I do? I need to distract myself. I want to stay home as long as possible. Im about 10/15 mins from the hospital.

I like to hang out at home or go out to the park or restaurants, etc.       Places in public are nice for me.     When it gets more intense & near the end we make sure we have all the food and kid's entertainment and we go.

Call my boyfriend if he isn't with me, and go to the hospital.

I'm about 45 mins from hospital so I don't have a lot of time but I plan on putting in carseat and grabbing both our bags for hospital and grabbing a blanket for myself incase my water has broken (new car). Other than that calling a select few family members and letting them know the day has come

Probably labor at home for awhile depending on how intense it is. Then I will go to the hospital.

Around my due date ill be hiring a cleaning service to make sure everything is clean and ready to go and then have a checklist for my support team to know what's happening.

I want a home water birth, so it'll be time for business.

I would do all of the same kind of thing and order pizza and put on something funny to watch as I am doing those things. But, I avoid social media during labor, like the plague. I want a home birth next time, so I will be getting in the corner tub, once it gets more intense. : )
