Ok, I just want some opinions from you ladies. My husband and I live 300 miles from our families, and we are just trying to decide if we want to have the baby up here or if we want to try and have the baby down there where all our family members are
We both would really love to have the baby down there because I have had two surgeries down there and it was a lot easier for my husband to have help to take care of me after the surgeries. Plus we really want some of our family members to kind of be a part of things. They also have a lot better medical care down at the hospitals there.
But I worry that it wouldn't be the best idea because it's always hard to tell when the baby will actually decide to show up and my husband would have to figure out how much time to take off work. Plus you never know what could happen and if I ended up having to have a C-section it's going to be extremely uncomfortable traveling 300 miles back home after we have the baby. And not to mention having to pack around the bassinet, and deciding where we would stay.
My biggest concern would be my husband having to try and take the time off work, but I am just trying to get people's opinions on what you think would be better.
So...have the baby up here, or have the baby down with the family. What do you think?
