As my due date approaches closer and closer, I can't help but wonder who is going to look after Lil J while I'm at the hospital in labour. We have a lot of options - parents, siblings, etc. - but I want all of them to be at the hospital with me! Well, not necessarily in the actual birthing room but just at the hospital. Kind of selfish isn't it?

I also can't fall asleep as easily at night anymore. Probably because my mind is running 1,000 miles a minute thinking about all of the possible outcomes that labour and delivery can bring. I'm nervous, terrified and excited. Definitely a mix of emotions.
Who looked after your kids while you were in the hospital? How did you handle anxiety leading up to the birth of your child?
