Need some advice plz, I have an 11and half month old son and am 21 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child and im really unsure wat to do with him during my labour. I dont live close to any of my family, i have my inlaws but my mum inlaw will b in the labour room with me and my partner. Ive never left him to b babysat for more than a couple of hrs and only a handful of times and the only person ive ever left him with is my mum in law. Has anyone ele had an older sibling present during the labour and birth process. I dont want to frighten him as he gets upset when im sick with morning sickness. Ive been considering asking my father in law to watch him in the waiting room for me as i know im goin to be so worried about him if i leave him with anyone. I thought i would b fine leaving him with a good friend of mine whos little boy was born the same day but the closer i get the more upset im getting at the thought of leaving him.
