Miss Mochaccino:  I just sympathised because I also have slightly overbearing in-laws, I love them but it took me many years to fine tune the technique for handling them and I can STILL find it tricky at times; I tend to bite my tongue a bit!

I have a dear friend who was very sick after an emergency C-Section, as you said thankfully this is an option and although she was gravely ill afterwards it still saved her life. I hope it all works itself out for you, stress is definitely the last thing you need.

Darling Husband and I haven’t discussed this, as we arent TTC for another 10ish months, but I don’t want anyone at any of my appointments except him! When it comes to labor and delivery, I don’t have a set plan. However, my mom is an LND nurse at the hospital we will deliver at and I can’t imagine not having her there during the labor process. When it comes time to push, it’ll be just Darling Husband and I. ILs live 30 minutes away and will be informed when I’m nearing delivery. However, I would like to spend some time with new baby and Darling Husband before the masses arrive!

Miss Mochaccino:  I agree with PP that this is completely your decision on how you give birth and on who is there for it. I just thought my views as I am now 25 qweeks and have had my routine U/S.  

Basically the norm in the UK is 2 U/S (12 weeks and 20 weeks). Now 12 is to confirm that there is a baby and and that everything is fine (plus check for Downs etc) and week 20 is a deeper look for any abnormalities. To be honest, we were very nervous for both as you worry that they will find something that we wanted it to just be the 2 of us.  I mean imagine if your Mother-In-Law is there and you find out something it wrong? Would you not want to process this with you Darling Husband first? Especially if she is critical and not very supportive?

Just thought I’d mention it as it’s worth keeping in mind.
