I want quiet time at the hospital to rest, don't want many visitors. At home, I want the baby to adjust to being home before I have visitors coming in to hold her. But I know some of dh's family members are going to welcome themselves without calling to see if its alright first :/ dk how to reach to that still
Probably text the in laws, -they are 9000 miles away, so no suprise visit in the hosp,lol-, and maybe my friend, im not sure, we might need someone to watch C, while my hubby is in the room with me during labor.
Otherwise, you ladies.., and the rest of the world just gonna have to wait until she is here safe and sound..
I'm thinking I'll have my husband call my parents and his parents when we're on our way/admitted to the hospital. I'll have him text siblings and friends to let them know baby is on the way. Then once things have calmed down after the delivery, he'll call the parents and send out a text to update everyone... That's my plan so far. We'll see if it actually holds up when they time comes!

This depends on the pace of it all. If I go before my scheduled c-section it means I went into preterm labor and will probably be a bit too busy to update anyone. I'll tell DH ASAP and we will wait until we are admitted to the hospital before we call our parents. I'll probably text my best friend. There won't be an official announcement (facebook, extended family, etc) until after the baby arrives.
If I make it to my schedule c-section then I will probably post on facebook the morning of before we head to the hospital but not birth details until after the baby is born.
In my opinion, this is something very personal for my family and I don't think anyone else needs a play by play of what is going on.
It depends what time of day it is. We left for the hospital at 1:30am last time. Other than the grandparents (to drop off our son), there wasn't much point in telling people that I was in labor because the baby was born before they woke up.
If I'm in labor during hours that normal people are awake, I'll probably email family that lives nearby (as I won't want to be chatting on the phone with a bunch of people) and maybe post online (in forums/groups) for people I don't know IRL. After the baby is born, we'll call family (depending again on time of day) and after that post on facebook.

We'll call my parents as soon as we know it's really labor because I want my mom with me Then we'll call his parents, and my other family members closer to when we go to the hospital. A facebook announcement to all the friends depends on how I'm feeling at the time and may just wait until he's here!
