Same here. I want pictures and video, and need help with DD, but I can't think of anybody else I'd want here. Well, actually I know the perfect person for watching DD would be my brother, but he's not old enough to drive! He'd be so perfect b/c she'd play with him for hours without wanting us, and I know he'd want nothing to do with the birth. I'm afraid of asking one of our moms to watch her, b/c they'd be more concerned about the birth than her.
Hopefully b/t the midwife, her asst, and DH they can get it all covered.

So, my dilemma is how best to poke my husband with a stick without hurting our marriage.
Good luck with that! If all else fails, could your DH just put her stuff in another room and move it in after she's born?
We plan on buying a house before this baby gets here, so I don't even know where the pool woud be yet. I'm hoping in the bedroom, though. I guess it will depend on size and water access.
