You'll get along fine if your mom can't make it, my mom and I have a great relationship...but she has always been completely worthless after I have children. With my first she worked all day and couldn't help, with my second she had a breast augmentation 2 or 3 days later, and yesterday she just told me that she scheduled a hysterectomy for this thursday. Luckily, my parents are divorced and my dad and stepmom will be here.
Well, I worked all weekend...2 12 hour shifts, I'm exhausted, was up all night with DD2 and my friend that's due the 14th is already hitting me up to see if I work, in case she goes into labor. My house is a disaster (how does that happen when no one is here all freaking weekend?!?)
My mom is the same, lol. With my first she decided to take off the week before my EDD, instead of the week or 2 after. And she figured since I wasn't having the baby any time soon she would just travel around instead. I went to 41 weeks with my first and she took off work when I was 39 weeks. My 2nd I was living with my ex-MIL so it was OK with her not being there. This one, she works at a major retailer so she can't take off work until January. She will have a couple days off, maybe, that she might be able to come up for a night after the baby is born.
I can't beleive you are working so many hours! I am complaining about my school work and my housework. There is no way I could do 2 12 hour shifts! HUGS to you!
