Re: ? about going to the hospital to have a baby when you have a toddler
I can relate to your story. My MIL is great with my dd. My MIL lives in our house that dd lived in her hole life up until a month ago when we moved out and MIL moved in. So my dd's are both comfertable there. My MIL does not drive so I don't have to worry about her taking her any were.

my sil came and stayed at our house with dd while i was having logan, this way dd was with her stuff and felt at home.
as soon as i was out of labor and was okay on my own about 2 hours later LOL dh went home and got dd to bring her to see us. then dd was with dh until i got home from the hospital. they would visit us one or twice a day
I had a c-section so i was there 3 days
There is no way in he&* that i would let my dd stay at my inlaws house. that isnt an option. they arent allowed to dry my children in the car either. if there is an emergency my mil can drive my car with dd in there, but that has only happened 1 time when i was rushed to the hospital at 23 weeks preggo.
I am a freak about people driving my kids and stuff though LOL
My kids will not sleep over theyre house ever though. My dads def not there though, i dont feel like there house is safe. but that is another story lol
I had a really bad experience in the hospital with dd#1 that brings tears to my eyes if I think of my postpartum. I don't want my husband to leave me when I am in the hospital in fear of what happend the first time. SO him not being there is not an option, unless they want to put a woman recovering from a c-section in the loony ward. LOL.
After reading some of the other posts I feel better and I know it will only be for three days and DH will go get dd#2 and let her spend as much time with me as I can handle.
Thank you all who have posted! Now I am off to nest.
