Texting while laboring
For the past few weeks when we bid adieu to friends they say please send a mass text out when you have the baby so we can come by the hospital to visit you. While incredibly sweet this is surprising. It never occurred to us that friends visited at the hospital. We figured you visited once the family was home. Our plan was to e-mail everyone with an announcement and pictures once Sunflower came and invite people to come visit. I'm planning to order these Hershey bar announcements to give people when they came but obviously can't give them out at the hospital. I can tell my friends are sincere and really would want to come to the hospital so that leaves me confused since we didn't think anyone would ask. When asked we just say yeah for sure if we can remember to do that in the moment. I make a joke about my pregnancy brain and move on, but I guess I'm trying to figure out if you would want (or did you have) friends visiting while at the hospital? If you asked someone to let you know when you went into labor, and then they didn't tell you until later once you were home and the baby was born- would you be hurt?
