Plan for communication
I'd like to record things as they are happening as much as possible during labor and delivery, and I've decided the best place to do that is on this blog.
So, lucky readers, if you have any interest, you may get a play by play of What.Happens.Tomorrow. I say may, because as a woman, I reserve the right to change my mind at any time.
I ask that if you know me in Real Life, that you don't post anything on Facebook or anywhere else, until after you see the birth announcement made there. I think I *might* post, "Heading to the hospital" there in the morning, but I'll post throughout the day (hopefully) here.
Then we'll call text/special friends and family, then email an extended list after that. Then Facebook.
So, you will know here, before, and more than my mom. Please don't tell my mom! :)
I do this, partly because I have blog-stalked several of you when I knew or thought you were in labor. I have also really enjoyed hearing play-by-play of what happens in labor from others, and that has helped to educate me.
But I'll admit the biggest reason is that I may really need your support. Maybe I'll reactivate my AdventuresinGlass twitter sidebar and post twitter updates to the blog. Would that be easier?
Not sure, either way, check back tomorrow for the latest (if you care!) and I'd love to hear from you!!
