    My mom says she's cool with it, but I'm starting to think she's really not.

    are you allowing her at the birth? i would only surround yourself with possitive people. also the bp limits seem low for your mw's

    I don't think your daughter would be traumatized if she is watching because she wants to. I remember my brother and I were allowed to attend my youngest sister's birth at the hospital and it was really neat to watch her be born (although, yes I was a little grossed out at the time as well!) Granted we were both older, 10 and 13 at the time. I would say it more depends on if your mom is truly comfortable to be there with them, if she is not, then it may be better for you if she does just take the kids to her house so she doesn't bring any negative vibes.

    I dont think she will be traumatized either, but I totally understand your thinking. Have you talked to her about natural childbirth? I think that helps. My friend gave me a bradley method book that had lots of pictures of women giving birth and her 2 year wanted to look through the book when she handed it to me. Her husband was there saying "dont show it to her bc it will give her nightmares." I actually kind of had the same thought. But nope my friend went page by page explaining everything to her. To my and her husbands surprise, her 2 year old loved it and was very fascinated.

    If your mom isn't positive it probably is best to not have her around. But I really don't think it's a big deal to have the kids in the house at all. If you've been talking about it so they know some of what's going on, they'll probably be fine. They'll know if they want to be around or not. But the most important thing is for a decision to be made so that you don't have any worries about them (or your mom!) during labor.

    Btw, YAY FOR 37 WEEKS!!! Any time now!

    She is going to be at the house, but just with the kids. Our plan when I'm in labor is to be up in our bedroom/bathroom, and the kids are allowed to come and go if they want but I have been pretty specific that I don't want her to be in the room. I love her, but I just want my husband and kids there.

    I also think their BP limits are pretty ridiculously low.

    We've talked a lot about birth, and I found some not-too-graphic birth videos online that we've watched together. I think she knows more about birth than your average 5yo.

    I had my 37 week home visit yesterday. We checked my birth kit and they looked at our bedroom and bathroom so they'd know where we're planning to be. Pretty much the whole point was for them to find our house so they wouldn't get lost when it really matters. So now we're just waiting!

    Every evening I just about convince myself "Tonight is the night," and then I wake up in the morning and think, "Well, I guess I'm still pregnant!'" lol

    Although I am 37 weeks by LMP, and I have long cycles. By my charting, I'm not really 37 weeks until Saturday. I think next week is more likely. But I have been having lots of BH and some cramping, and just generally feel very tired.
