I just started thinking about this!
My parents live two hours away, and DH's live 4 hours away. Luke will go to my landlady's house when we leave for the hospital.
I plan on taking full advantage of the two days I get in the hospital after the birth. Our women's center is like a hotel, its fabulous. Those two days, just me and the new baby, are the best! My DH will be able to take the whole week off as well.
My mom offered to take Luke for the first week... and I'm really considering that!! Our house is too small to have any extra guests, and the help would be GREAT!!!!!
my MIL has offered but she is a teacher and will still be in school. I'm glad honestly!! I do strive to be patient with her... but she makes me BONKERS!!!
