There's about a 30% chance I will go into labor before my mom is scheduled to get here. She wanted to be here for the labor, then put off coming until right before my due date (her boss approved working remotely, btw). Whenever I call now, she thinks I'm calling to tell her I'm in labor and that she'd somehow get her plane tickets re-arranged, her stuff packed, drive to the airport (2 hours away), fly out here (4 hours minimum, plus an hour of airport time), then drive out here (1.5 hours, if the car rental company is ultra-fast) in time to be here for active labor. If you figure at least an hour to go "maybe I should time these" and another hour to establish "yep, these are regular", that's over 10 hours into labor. Once I'm to that phase of labor, the fewer interruptions, the better.
How would you handle this? Leave it be, hoping you don't have to deal with it? Explaining that it's not worthwhile for her to try to change her tickets to get out here earlier when I'm already in labor? Point out that my midwife doesn't DO cervical checks until I'm in active labor, so there's no telling how close I am (other than the fact that I'm already having 50+ second contractions at least every 90 minutes)? Call her during labor anyway (the plan was to only call DH and the midwife, to avoid interruptions)?
Am I just over thinking this?
