post #21 of 21
My labour started at around 6am, we woke up the grandparents to come get our boys. They live down the street and as much as I love my kids, I really could not have handled the noise and madness two little boys add to the mix while trying to focus on my labour. I really prefer the quiet while I suffer. The grandparents brought them by a couple hours later to meet their brother and then kept them overnight so DH could focus on me and I could focus on baby. I don't think I'd do it any other way, but that's just me.
