Hospital Tours Anyone??

DH and I are waiting for our tour to start now. We decided to have a little fun and time getting here. So DH had to act like he was gathering the baby bags lol etc etc. He was driving like a mad man but it took us 14 mins to get here. Its five something so the beltway had some traffic. So we get to the parking area and realize that labor & Delivery is no where near the parking lot. So pissed I had to walk down a hill.

Anyone else had a tour or plan on taking one?

I'll be delivering at new hospital so we'll do a tour soon. I hope they have a drop off area and valet parking for the real deal!

I'm delivering at the same hospital I did last time so I'm not going to take a tour.

I'm thinking about take a hospital tour even though I delivered at the same hospital with all 3 kids, because they have changed the rooms since I had Nate. We'll see if I feel up to it. :)

I did find out that they have valet parking right in front, also if I'm in active labor or a lot is going on once we arrive, DH can park in front with his lights blinking until we are settled in. I will pre reg online so we won't have much to do upon arrival. I found out that will in labor I get one VIP(DH) and four other people in the room. While delivering I get one VIP and two people. And if a C/S is needed I get one VIP and one person.

We went Saturday...its a new hospital for us b/c we haven't been here in AZ long. It was beautiful and pretty new (less than 5years) and it got me even more excited about baby Wesley's arrival. One thing that was kinda cool is that in our post-pardum rooms they have web cams (video chatting on skype etc is blocked) and think that its nice for out of town family...but mostly b/c I'm not sure if DS will get to visit in the hospital if they have and RSV restriction in place...which they probably will. It would break my heart ifh e couldn't come see us (they said they do make exceptions for siblings sometimes) then we can at least video chat with him.
