I just realized that I am so convinced that I will be going overdue (as usual) that I have no plans made for my other kids if I happen to go into labour before or even in the 10 days after my due date. *facepalm*
My other boys were 10 and 11 days late. I have sort of just assumed that this boy will be just as late. Since my EDD is June 1st, I've kind of been thinking that he'll arrive on June 10th (the date I'll be induced). My mom plans to arrive around June 8-9th and will stay until the 12th (she doesn't have much time off available, so we planned her visit for the latest possible time for baby to arrive - no point in her coming around my due date if baby is not ready to come out!) My MIL is coming to help out towards the end of June for a week.
But if I happen to go into labour in late May, or even in the first week of June, I have NOBODY set up to watch my kids! Uhhh.....poor planning. We don't have family in town - I do have 2 cousins who live here but they are nearly an hour away, and the cousin I am closer to has 3 kids of her own, one of them only 5 months old. I can't be calling her at 3 in the morning. And I can't be driving 2 hours to drop my kids off there.
What are your plans for your older kids when you are at the hospital? What if you don't have family nearby?
I guess I better start thinking about this.....
