Quoting Abigails_Mommy_222:" i was thinking the same thing about having a child in the house.. my daughter will be almost 4- i was ... [snip!] ... home with the birth and labor going on? i dont want to stress her out but i also think she is what maight help me stay calm ? "
I've watched a few birthing videos with my son and explained to him what's happening and he seems to understand the basics of what's going on. I'm more concerned of his reaction to me being in pain and being able to deal with it/be okay with it, I guess. Maybe I will get lucky and it'll be in the middle of the night and he'll sleep through the whole thing?
