The hospital I'm delivering at is 90 miles from our house...there is one closer but it is a horrible hospital and I have already had to report them several times and their gross neglect almost caused me to lose DD at 14 weeks pregnant...just, no...unless there is a TRUE, life threatening emergency I can't go there...
That being said.
This will be baby number four for me and my labors have gotten shorter with the last one coming in at 2 hours. I plan on leaving home as SOON as I start getting any sort of contractions, I won't wait for them to be very timeable because with DS2 I barely felt like I was in labor and thought my contractions had stopped when I got to the hospital and I was dilated to six...so I just have to be cautious and could possibly end up taking needless trips to that town, but oh well.
My question is...what should I have in the car in case the baby comes enroute? Towels? Blankets? Nasal aspirator? Am I crazy? The hospital I HATE is 20 minutes away and this is the only other option, the one I go to now and went to with DS1 there are no other options as we live in the boonies.
Any advice would be incredibly helpful as to what I should bring just in case the baby makes a very fast appearance.
