Your sister wants you there. You live close enough to get there relatively easily and you have plans for your daughter (who is plenty old enough to hang out in the hospital without gong nutty).

I am at a loss as to why your husband could possibly care or want to try to stop you? Do you only have one car and he will be without transportation while you are gone or something? That is about the only thing I can imagine being a semi legitimate reason for him to have ANY opposition to you being there.

If your sister requested that you be there, then yes, of course I would go to the hospital.

As a general rule, whether or not I would visit someone in the hospital would depend upon my relationship with them, what they were hospitalized for & how happy I think they'd be to have a visitor. Close family member I'd obviously be there as much as possible. Friend...quick visit less than 30 minutes (unless friend requests otherwise for some reason)...enough so that they know I care and am thinking of them, breaks up their day a bit with someone to talk to but doesn't wear them out in terms of feeling the need to "entertain".

That's my thinking. I could see my DH thinking it would be pain for HIM to sit at the hospital or whatever -- so I'm wondering if he is saying it as in HE doesn't want to go do it but as far as I can tell it is of no concern for him anyway. Unless he's the type that decides to get weirded out because you are driving 2 hours by yourself with your DD (is he concerned since you may be gone overnight?). Mine gets wonky like that. 2 hour drive, wouldn't think twice...me staying overnight somewhere after the 2 hour drive and it is a let me make sure everything is in working order. Hard to explain but that is the only thing I can think of that would even make this a blip on DH's radar.

I just attribute it to one of those things where men think -- no big deal and can't fathom why women would even consider it one.

If your sister asked you, then yes, of course.

If she didn't, then I don't think I'd bother.

Agree with pretty much everybody. She wants you there, go be there. My very best friend, who is pretty much my sister, is pregnant with her first. Her husband is going to be deploying soon and she mentioned wanting me to be in the delivery room with her. Only problem is I live in IL and she will be in Georgia where they're stationed. I don't know how I could feasibly make it work, but if she was closer and asked me to be there, dang right I would be.

Why do you care what anyone else thinks? Your sister asked you to go, you want to go, your husband is being a jerk.
