Re: What about your other kids ?
With my ds2, I had a friend from our neighborhood come over to watch our first son.
Babies 3 and 4 were born at the birth center; ds1 and ds2 fell asleep on the pull-out couch while I labored in the next room with ds3. DSs123 were at the birth of ds4.
With my twins I had a friend come over to stay with the boys until my mother could come up (she lives a 2hr drive away).
