Thanks for all the replies. All I knew was from 90's sitcoms & movies. So there's more time than I thought.

I'm sure I know what I would do.

I would go into shock, then faint.

My wife had a complete hysterectomy right after our first child, 25 years ago!

So this is what our profession has come to, or is this what America has come to. You are worried about missing a job or two when your wife, the one person show should be most improtant to you, is giving birth to your child. I really hope that she isnt reading this thread, becasue if she is she will not be happy. You are putting the pursuit of money before your family. Whatever happened to family values. Oh I forgot, that job is much more improtant.

Labor is not something you can predict. My daugher was born after 47 minutes of labor. My son took over 12 hours. There is not crystal ball to say how long it will take, unless, of course, she is getting a C-section.

I cannot wrap my mind around this thread. That you would worry about an inspection when your wife is about to have a baby. Good luck to you. You are going to need it.

wsiegel- relax - What I think he means that if he is in the middle of an inspection and he gets the call, what is the proper way to handle it.

I would have to say this beats any of "The most stupidly asked Home Inspector Questions" of the year...

They should put that on on the Home Inspector License Test...

perhaps he would like to provide food and shelter for his wife and baby.

Everyone's situation is different. My father in law dropped my mother in law off in front of the emergency room and went to the beer joint for both of her children.

I was with my wife through her entire labor, all 36 hours of it, and I'm glad I did it. This was long ago, 1983, and unemployment was at all time high, and I joined the unemployment crowd after missing my 2nd straight day. The stress of not having a job to feed your new baby and make a house payment is immense on a 21 year old youngster.

Do what you feel you must. No one has a right to judge you except the man in the mirror.

Good Luck!
