Who all will know that you're in labor, when the time comes?
Do you have any close family or friends who you'll notify you're in labor, or do you plan to announce everything once baby is born? We have never told family or friends until the baby has arrived, and I don't post labor updates on facebook. I just go inward when I'm in labor and get the job done.
If I labored during the day and it was longer than my 2 hour freight train, I might consider texting a couple good friends who would be prayerful and respectful of space to let them know things started. I'd contact one for sure if I needed her to pick my kids up.
My DH is a pastor, so I'm amused at the potential scenario of me going into labor on a Saturday night and him not being able to show up at church....everyone will know then, whether or not I would have wanted them to know! And we live right across the street from the church, LOL. Thankfully, I know people will respect our privacy.
What about you, have you thought this far ahead yet?
ETA: my mom will hopefully be at our house for the birth this time, so she will probably alert my dad, which is fine with me
