Am I a dork because I've already thought about this?

The dogs will just be wherever they feel like being. If they start to bug me too much and I don't feel like having them in the same room, I'll shut a few doors and seclude myself in the bedroom/bathroom. I'm sure they'll want to come meet the new little person afterward if they are shut out during birth itself and sure I'll let them. They're fine with babies.

The cat has been with me since she was 5 days old and is very loving. While AF's visiting she somehow knows exactly when I'm having cramps. If I'm lying down she gets on my stomach, hunches down so her chest is touching me, and purrs. I must admit purring is almost as effective as my heating pad. I bet she tries to help. I don't think I'll feel like shutting her out at all ... she'll probably be with me the whole time.

My pets are mostly reptiles so they are in cages, and they will stay there.

My dog will probably go outside.

I voted 'other'

My mom came over the morning I went into labor and took my dogs for a week (it was a nice break with a newborn, too) and my cat just kinda did whatever she wanted to around the house.

It would never have occoured to me
to do something with my Cats,

i think I will just happily let them wander where ever they like,


I'm still trying to work out what I plan to do with my kids lol,

DS aged 15months, doesnt like his grandparents right now,
and wont go with anybody BUT me or DH so umm not sure there,

and hopeing that the bigger kids will just happen to be at school at the time, or I guess sleeping would be ok to,

other then that, I guess I am happy for the kids to just be here, and maybe I should ask my friend if she could come be here with them,
but then she's got 3 kids too,

The 3 dogs will go to my parents' house and the cat, ferrets, rats and mice will all stay... and the fish, but she is more of a decoration than a pet to me even though she needs care (don't everyone throw stones at once!).

And yes, I said rats and mice!
