I’m really anxious

About us not having a back up plan in the event that I go into labour in the evening, middle of the night or on the weekend. By back up plan I really mean that we have no family nearby that we can call at all times of the day or night that could be here quickly. My girls are in daycare right now Monday – Thursday and sometimes Friday and will be until March 12. That’s when my daycare will be taking some time off to have a baby of her own. That’s my day plan until then.

My parents are obviously on stand by and will come when I call… but that will take them close to 4 hours to get here if they have their bags packed. They will leave work or spring out of bed and hop in the car and probably drive far too fast to get here.
I am so anxious about this that when I am up through the night, I am worrying about it. It stops me from falling back to sleep. I worry about Piper and Davilyn and I am down right scared that I will have to go to the hospital by myself without Craig.
I am so anxious about this that I cried at the Doctor’s office today and that I am crying as I type it.
It has been mentioned to Craig’s parents that we would like them to come out early but no commitment has been made by them. Nor have they really brought it up again. I hate feeling like we are begging them to come and visit us, to come and help us. I guess part of me feels that they are retired and if they wanted to do it, they just would.
I’m considering asking a friend… but I hate to impose on them or burden them. They are busy with work and two kids of their own and the thought of giving them a 2:00 a.m. wake up call and then dropping off two crying kids is enough to make me anxious (yet again) that I haven’t asked them.
So that is me in a nut shell right now… anxious about having this baby before 34 weeks and anxious that we have no back up plan and hating every second of it.

Oh sweetie, of course that is goiing to cause anxiety for sure. I wish I lived closer beccause I would help, even a little, doing whatever I could.

as for asking the friends etc, that's what GOOD friends are for, to be there. If your ILs won't come you need to be able to know that you can call someone and even if it means a night or two with Piper and Davilyn isn't that worth your sanity and a nice gift card afterwards???

please don't worry!!!! hard to do, but Diva is coming no matter what and sooner than later, so just breathe , made your plan and KNOW in your heart that everything is going to be ok.

Ask your friend! You CANNOT consider going to the hospital without your hubs. Ask your friend!!
