Re: Help me solve my dilemma--what would you do?
The 4 hour drive in labor is what scares me! We did the long drive home with my second DD and we just made sure to make lots of stops along the way for her to nurse. It wasn't too bad.

Sorry it has to be so complicated for you, that must be frustrating!
