My mother! Most definitely. She may or may not still be home in Texas, but either way, she's getting a call!

My Mom! She probably would hop in the car and drive the 5 hours to see if she could make it there. She's my best friend!

It will definitely be my sister. Although I am hoping that she will be with me. If she is then it would have to be my mom.

My mommy. Hopefully she'll already be out in UT by then, and able to watch DD while DH and I go to the hospital. That's one of the reasons why I'm grateful to be induced a week before my due date. Either way, no matter where my mom is, she'll definitely be the first to get a call.

My mom will be the first call when I go into labor so she can come get DD and then after we deliver we will call my mom and dad to bring DD over... and maybe call the in-laws... well DH might. My mom will have the rest of my whole family covered... she's beyond excited for grandchild #2!

I learned with my first two pregnancies, not to call my mom immediately or until I'm ready for her intensity. Seriously, she's reeeally intense sometimes. When my DD was born, she was there, at the hospital, in the room with me...and she was driving me nuts. Not making me angry...but wouldn't stop talking, was trying to be too helpful even when I was telling her I was fine or that I preferred this over that. She had good intentions but she was just TOO MUCH.

With DS..she was states away and I called her while in labor..and at one point I was vocalizing through a contraction...moaning basically, not screaming...and it was helping me, and over the phone I hear "oh my poor baby! what are you doing to her?! get her some medication!" I was trying to go natural (which she knew)....so this was not helping me. I ended up handing the phone to my then husband and saying "please deal with her...I need to focus".

So, needless to say, I'm going to wait for awhile and let my mom get giddy and excited AFTER the baby is born. She won't be here, so no need to call her in the middle of it and stress her out or risk her calling me 20 times during the labor to check. I know it's natural for a mom to be concerned or want to be involved...but, like I said...far too intense for me.

I'll call my best friend, who was present during my labor with my son and has had 3 natural births, 2 of those at home, and some doula training (though she never completed the certification process). She was a HUGE support during my labor with DS.

I will call my mom. She will come meet us at home and I will either have her drive me to the hospital or wait there with us until my MIL gets there to be with DD.

Probably noone when I actually go into labour, well except for whoever is having the kids

After the baby is born, not sure.

I will call my mom and sister when I go into labor... My sister wil be flying in from Texas, she's a teacher and luckily will be out of school just in time to be here! They'll be in charge of the rest of the calls to family. My best friend lives with us, so she'll either be around or get a text and be in charge of the friend phone tree.

After baby arrives I think we'll call my brother first. He's in the army on the opposite side of the country and we were very close growing up. He's also DH's best friend and kinda the reason we ended up where we are.

Probably my parents and DH's mother. DH's mom will hopefully be babysitting our daughter once we go into the hospital, we'll call her once labor gets rolling so she can entertain DD and DH can support me until we go to the hospital. After that my sister!

I`ll call my mom and my two best friends and let them know I am in labor..although my one friend will probably already know. None of them will be there for my labor though/
After the baby is born...my mom,family and my two best friends. I will let dh call his parents who are watching kaylee while I labor.

Who ever is watching Marleigh will be first to get the call that I'm in labor, and as for when the baby is born, everyone will be at the hossy I'm sure, so my parents and ILs will call all the extended family

My mom definitely. I want her in the room with me, but she's currently without a car and lives an hour away and her ride to the hospital would be my uncle who lives an hour away from her... so it should take them about 3 hours to get to the hospital.
