Ok, guys, I'm checking in to the luxury accomodations of our local hospital facility, will be enjoying the comforts of the maternity wing. The wing has a lovely area chocked full of delicious edibles. And each room has a gorgeous view, cable tv, and your very own personal maid... I mean nurse...LOL Ok, I'm trying to pretend I'm going on a 2 day vacation and returning with the best gift ever. Well, I get checked in tomorrow at noon, so I'll be back on here by Friday to give the update on how it all went. Well, it may not be a vacation, but one thing for sure, we definitely get better accomodations than what our parents had. We don't have to share a room with 10-15 other women, we get to watch a nice tv with cable or satelitte, we get a bright,comfy, homelike enviorment, and we can have our significant other there...if we want. Times have definitely changed, I wonder how things will be 15 years from now when my children start having kids? Well, wish me luck, and I'll talk to you on Friday.

Wow sounds like a great place to birth! I delivered in a military hospital so it was pretty close to the dark ages lol, it was more like medievil torture ;)

Good luck dramaqn! I love the fact that I had the birthing room all to myself...both times. Especially when I gave birth to my second son. It was at the same hospital as where I had my first son, but the 'accommodations' were so much nicer! Of course the room was needed a couple of hours later, so out I went LOL, but at least my baby could be with me in both the birthing and after birth (sorry forgot the name) room and not in some nursery away from "mommy". By the way, I never understood why they did this in the 'old days'.

Who knows why they did anything in the old days. It does make you wonder though, considering probably back in our grand and great grandparents days the babies were born at home with the whole family around and the doctor came to the house. That was a time when family was more close, I bet that had something to do with the closeness. After all, these days our families are trying to be more close and it could have something to do with the fact that we can have a friend or family member with us when we deliver. Thanks, I'll see ya in a few days. WOW, a few days without my computer... what will I do with myself?

You are very lucky you are not having your baby in the UK, we have gone back to the dark ages!! Where you are going sounds wonderful, I remember I had to share a ward with 10 other women, which was alright but not very private. I hope everything goes well for you and your fiance enjoys the whole experience. Oh, and remember PUSH!!!!:-0

Good luck with the birth. It sounds like a wonderful place to have your baby. I agree that you are lucky not to be having your baby in the UK. Yes, it is like going back to the dark ages. Home is far better than a hospital for me.

Things are certainly different from our mothers' day. When I went in to have my baby, I loved my hospital room, too. I would have gladly stayed another day.
