User Topic: Hope I don't go into labor

I am due on Thursday. I spent today cleaning my house (behind my dd4 and ds 18 mos) since my mother will be here tomorrow. Then, I babysat my niece (8) and nephew (5), including dinner for all of us, while my SIL and her bf were at work. About 8:30, I started having a few contractions. I've had a warm bath and am laying down now. It's been an hour and a half since I had a contraction, but my H just got called to do a finishing job on a rig location 2 hours from here. Thoughts, hopes and prayers from anyone who reads this that I don't go into labor at least until he finishes this job. He has taken days off starting tomorrow (technically today now, but the middle of the night is always questionable and we could use the hours), but I need to make it through tonight.

Hi musiclovingmom

Sending mojo your baby stays put until dad and grandma make it home.

Look on the bright side 2 April is maybe a better birthdate than 1 April (fools day). However Thursday would be a good date as the baby would have 04/04 as it's date of birth.

Good luck for the birth when it happens ...

Made it through the night. H is headed back home and mom is on a plane. So far so good.

04/04 is a good date. I had my last baby on that day. He will be 7 on Thursday.

Good luck!

Sending you positive thoughts, speedy return of your H and mother, and a very happy birth.
