So I am T minus 29 days until my scheduled C-section.
This ENTIRE pregnancty my MIL has swooned/promised/bragged that she will take DS for us while I am in the hospital. I made her fully aware it would be a good 4 days, and that my mom would clear her schedule if she wanted to split the duties. She refused saying she would take a week off of work, yada yada yada.
So I email her today and explain that we would drop DS off on Thursday night at bedtime and that I would hopefully be released from the hospital Sunday, Monday at the latest so we really only needed her to take Friday/Monday off of work (she gets 5 weeks vaca a year!) I also let her know that my mom, who lives about 10 min from the hospital would more than happily take him for 1/2 a day or whatever so she could come visit with FIL without the bugging of a toddler.
Welp, she immediately emails me back saying she can only do through Saturday evening because she wants to make plans. Not plans as in a once in a lifetime kind of event, but more like, "I fell like going out that night so he can't stay here". Her social life ALWAYS comes before us and our DS/kids, so really I'm not surprised, doesn't mean it hurts any less though!
I know I can ask my mom, and she's offered to take DS. But I feel bad. She watches him during the week for us so I feel soooo guilty ever asking her to watch him because she does so much for us!
I'm thinking DH can go home Saturday evening with DS and come back Sunday. If I am discharged, great. If not.. my mom can watch DS for the day and DH can take him home again that night. Play it by ear kind of thing.
What do you think? Did your DH do this? I recovered really well/fast the first time around so I think I'll be OK. Plus, I can have friends come hang out till late Saturday and early Sunday for a helping hand too I guess.
