I don't think I have an absolute worst. I have preferences. I would prefer night time as crazy as that sounds cause then I could possibly sleep thru early labor and DD would be sleeping also. But at this point I'd take any day now really lol
I prefer middle of the night too, which is when I had my girls. With Henry it was afternoon, which kinda was tricky. My parents had to pick up my girls at daycare so I didn't get to see them until more than 24 hours later. I didn't like dropping them off without knowing I wasn't going to pick them up.
At this point anytime is great!
I would prefer it be when my husband is home or is just about to get home. He is pretty much unreachable while at work and we have actually joked that he is going to get home to find a note on the door saying I am at the hospital.

As i was getting my epidural with Ellianna, DH got a text that his sibs were taking his Dad to the ER due to congestive heart failure. I was worried our daughter's day of birth could happen at the same time as something very sad. Luckily he is hangin in there.
I don't want the middle of the night bc I think the staff would be less likely to be cooperative with our specific birth plans. I'm hoping that if I did go early it would be Monday morning and not some time this weekend. I've just got to make it through this weekend. Also, DH is off Monday and will be for 2 weeks following that so ideally I'd like to make it to the scheduled time of Tuesday morning.
I would prefer a weekend. Tomorrow would be nice That is because then my parents will both be home to watch our daughter. However, I really want the same doctor who delivered dd and she is off this weekend and back on Monday. So, really it doesn't matter. I wouldn't mind early labor in the middle of the night but I don't want to have to wake up dd and bring her anywhere in the middle of the night.
I would of rather gone in to labor in the morning so I could of had a good night sleep. With both my kids labor started around midnight so I was up all night long so I was very exhausted by the time pushing came around.
