So, for those of you who don't know me, I'm Kim! My husband and I are 20, we have a 20 month old son named Joey, and I am 21 weeks pregnant with a little girl! She is also our last! :)
My husband is in the Military and set to deploy very soon! So he will not be here for the birth. We are in NY and all of our family is in GA. My mom and mother in law both said they will be flying up for the birth! Which Im very happy about!
My problem is I don't have anyone to watch my son, that I trust. My mom is the only one I trust to watch him, but I need her helping me with labor and a few things right after she is born.
I do have a few friends here but none Im comfortable watching Joey, and my mother in law... Well she's not good with kids (DH was an only child). Plus, I want a ton of people in the room with me! I want a party! :) When Joey was born it was just my husband and I, so now I want to share that experience with friends and family!
So, now I'm thinking of having my son in the room for the birth. I labored fast with him (got to the hospital at 5cm and was 8cm 30 mins later no epi, and then 4 hours later he was born!) so it hopefully won't take too long, lol.
Have any of you had your other kids in the room during a birth? How did it go?
**Yes the hospital will allow him there. I'll be talking to my friend Hannah today to see what she thinks of the idea of watching Joey for me, and I'll pay her. Shes great with him and the only one besides DH and my mom that I trust.
Thanks for listening!<3
