Tell Mommy: What Is Your Plan Once You Go Into Labor?

Expectant women all seem to have a plan. The due date is circled on the calendar. The hospital bag is packed and waiting by the door. The phone tree of friends and family member's numbers has been circulated, but with birth comes the unexpected. Many couples find themselves driving toward the delivery room weeks ahead of schedule or with another child in tow. There's no time to drop junior at Grandma's when mommy's water breaks and contractions keep coming. So some tots watch their siblings make their way into the world or daddy makes a mad dash from a business meeting to get there in time for baby's entrance. What is or was your plan and did it work out?

I was going to be induced on a Sunday evening (my due date was Monday), but went into labor the Thursday night before. Between the internal exam that day at the doctor's and a series of terrible thunderstorms, I didn't have to wait.

I really didn't have a formal plan. I think it was because it wasn't really something that you can plan on. If I was having a C section then maybe I would have planned a little more.
