FSIL is going to be induced today, and I just found out they are having ONLY the two of them in the room. I was suprised, but in a totally good way, I think it’s a wonderful bonding opportunity for the new family. FMIL was totally cool with it, only their grandma called her selfish for doing that
Who was or will be in the room with you when you deliver? For me, it’s gonna be the hubs, and grandma’s…

FI definitely. I’m still unsure if I’d want my mom there or not but definitely not my FMIL. Those would be my only two. I won’t have to worry about that for a while though.

It was just myself, and my DH along of course with the nurses and doctor

I had my sons Dad and my two best girlfriends at the time (we had a falling out a few years later). They were awesome and supportive. No hard feelings nearly 12 years later.
I have three older brothers who showed up while I was pushing, one wanted to come in. I told him next time he needed to take a huge dump, I was going to come in, smile, photograph him and coach him through it. He got the point and waited outside.

For both births, it was just me, the doctor and the nurses- and the doctor almost didn’t make it.
For the first birth, I was 6 weeks early and went to ER. The doctor told my husband that I wasn’t likely delivering as I didn’t seem very uncomfortable, before even examining me. My ex went upstairs to visit with a friend of ours who was a nurse. By the time he came back our son was born. Turns out I had what’s called silent labor. I didn’t feel any contractions tilll the last two.
For the second, I was in hospital as my waters had ruptured and I was 36 weeks. My ex went home as nothing was happening. I woke up at 12 midnight and my daughter was born at ten minutes after. Silent labor again.
The best way to have children!

@ShabbyChicBee: Although this could change, I’m thinking DH, my mom and my MIL. I am only allowed to have three people in the room .. I wouldn’t want anyone else in there anyway though.

@ShabbyChicBee: DH and I, that is it. I don’t want any family around or in the room and we have already told them (baby is due in August) that we want our private time with the baby for a bit before visitors will be allowed in. This is not negotiable.

@ShabbyChicBee: Im not sure how I feel about it yet. I think it will be a special bonding experience for me n the hubs but i hate leaving our moms out. Chances are it will be me n the hubs though.

@ShabbyChicBee: DH only. We don’tt plan on telling anyone that we’re even heading to the hospital. We’ll let people know once the baby is out!

@ShabbyChicBee: we are not trying for babies yet, but when the time does come i would want just DH in there with me (doc and nurses of course). The issue i see arrising is my mom is on the other side of the country, and i am sure she will be flying up to be there when the baby is born to help our and meet the little baby. I would feel bad leaving her alone…. but it is still going to happen… my inlaws live a little over and hour away, i dont want to tell them when we go to the hospital, id rather just let them know when the baby is born…. Idk, it just seems so private and personal, and at least for our first child i want it to be just our little family of three. 2nd, 3rd (etc) im sure my mom will be thrre keeping her grandchildren happy while DH and i get down to business!!

DH and possibly my mom.
MIL made a comment when I was dress shopping about how I shouldn’t be shy because one day she’ll be there “holding up a leg.” Ummm NOPE! lol
