Not quite sure if this will make sense . . .did any of you have babies that were full term but born at a time that was not convenient for you? For example, you were home alone, were not planning a UC, and the baby came anyway? You were out, far from home, and suddenly went into labor? Or, you had something you had to finish (a class, for example) and the baby was born before you were done (but could have waited a few weeks without it being an issue)? Maybe you were sick with a cold or flu (or your DP was) and did not want to go into labor, but did?
All 4 of my children "cooperated" in an almost eerie way . . .#1 when I was a week out of work, #2 the day after I finished my graduate work, #3 the first day my support person could help AND the day after a blizzard when roads were clear, and #4 on a Sunday morning when everyone was home. I am worried I will not be so lucky with #5. I really want to be done teaching my classes AND let it be a day when my DH is home (it would take way too long for him to get home from work) and/or MIL is still here.
Just wondering how much of our mental and physical states affect the onset of labor.
