The Baby Alert System

We have set up a Baby Alert System. We found a site that has an amazing feature that lets you send call blasts to members, so we figured we can set up different groups to alert friends and family abut any baby popping out news.

If you would like to be added to the Baby Alert System, leave a comment with your name, alert level desired and phone number or just email me and I'll add you.

We are thinking of having 5 Alert Levels:

Red- Call with any and all baby news. This means you will get a call when we are on our way to the hospital (whether it ends up being false labor or not). Please remember that this call could come at any time... day or night. Don't say we didn't warn you!

Orange- Call when we are admitted to the hospital. No false labor here, but still could be any time, day or night.

Yellow- Call when we are in the hospital, but at a reasonable time. We won't call you before 8:00AM or after 9:00PM. If we get admitted during the nighttime hours, we'll just schedule the call to be sent to your phone at 8:00AM.

Blue- Call once Van is born with all the normal baby details... weight, height, apgar, if he is a crazy hairy monster or not... Could be any time, day or night.

Green- Call once Van is born with all the normal baby details, but at a reasonable time. We won't call you before 8:00AM or after 9:00PM. If he is born during the nighttime hours, we'll just schedule the call to be sent to your phone at 8:00AM.

Please mark us down for an Orange desired alert level. But remember if you need us we can easily be bumped up to a Red alert level. Or if you just forget your overnight bag or something, anything just call, day or night, anytime. Love you guys,
Sheree and Eric

I say yellow. I assume we get another call with the details once he is born. If not, sign me up for that one too. You are so prepared!

Put us under the RED alert. If it's in the middle of the night, Dad won't hear the phone, but I will!! I just may not be real coherent. Love you guys!

Ok, I defiitely need in on this. I say add me to the yellow alert. I really want to be added to the red alert, but let's face it ... what good am I from 3 states away. I guess there's no good reason for you to wake me up in the middle of the night so just add me to the yellow and then I'll know to start praying!! I'll email you with my phone number.
