Hello!

I am 38 weeks tomorrow & sooo excited to meet my baby! My husband is a partnered subcontractor and requested not to do any more away Work for the month prior to baby’s due date, but he comes home last week to say they are scheduled to work 4 hours away all week this week.. I know its probably just the hormones but I’m so worried now of something happening or bubs deciding to come early.. here’s to a veryy long week ahead!

  • I read as I scrolled down the comments that hubby made it home so I hope that the birth went well and bubba is well. I think we all panic sometimes my hubby only worked 45 min away but I was always worried he wouldn’t make is as I do have quick births.

  • Im sure that if you phone hubby as soon as you start to feel labour coming on he would make it back in time.
    Good luck hope baby stays put till hes home again.

  • How exciting! All the best. It is more common for first time mums to be late, so hopefully bub will hang in there!!!

  • I wish you all the best but remember a due date is just a number the always say baby can come 2 weeks early or 2 weeks late :) congratulations either way :)
