@figgnewton:  I’m sorry your step mom missed your first DD’s birth! Hopefully second time’s a charm! I’m not having a baby anytime soon, but I can’t imagine not having my mom and Future Mother-In-Law there.

Wow! You had a lot of people for #1! The hospitals I’ve been to only allow 2. Was it weird at all with that many people? Besides Darling Husband, I only want my mom there, but only bc she is a nurse practitioner and knows soooo much about birthing that it’s practically like having a doctor there the entire time. If she wasn’t a healthcare provider, I’m not sure I would want her there  And hells to the no with Mother-In-Law, omg I would die if she was there but she drives me crazy, so that’s probably why! haha

When our friends had a baby they could only have two people at max in the room, so you are lucky if you can have more!

When my mom had my brother (22 years ago aww) she had my dad and aunt in there. My aunt was never able to have kids and wanted to watch a baby being born. I plan on just having my husband, but my mom needs to be in there while I;m in labor. She’s the only one that can make me laugh when I’m a complete wreck.

I’m definitely having my hubby (obviously) and if my mom is in town, then I would like her in the room with me.  My parents are on a European vacation until the 28th of September and I’m due the 23rd, so I’m not sure if it will happen.

I definitely plan on having Mr CL and my mum in the room, can’t imagine it any other way.  There is no chance in hell I want Mr CL’s mum there.  I love her to bits but she’d stress me out too much!

My mom and Darling Husband will both definitely be in the room for the birth of my children.  I wouldn’t be opposed to my Mother-In-Law being there either (although I don’t know that she’d be interested).

Darling Husband for sure, obviously.  I wouldn’t mind having my mom and Mother-In-Law in the room, but it’s not some major thing for me that I need them there – and depending on where we’re living, they may not be in town/close by when the time comes (we don’t live close to either family right now, and may be moving to the other side of the country soon).

My BIL’s girlfriend gave birth in the parking lot of the hospital this morning and her sister was there, so I guess that counts!

I am not sure about who I will want in the room with me, but I know my Mother-In-Law and SIL are driving 4hrs to see me in the hospital as soon as we tell them we are going, so I am not sure what they expect or how I would feel about them being there for delivery. The hospital allows me to have 3 designated support people, so it will be my husband for sure, and I am not sure who else, if anyone until after little girl arrives. I’m not sure if I will welcome the distraction or want to focus and relax! If I do allow them both, I will feel bad that my mom is left out – she never wanted anyone to visit her until the baby was born so I know she will understand if I want to be alone with my husband till then, but I would feel kindof annoyed if I were her and my MIL/SIL were allowed in and not her.

I am having my hubby… And possibly my mom. Mil will not be in the room, we’re actually debating when we will let her know that the baby’s here.

I am only having my Darling Husband but would love to have my mom.  I just think it would be unfair to not have my Mother-In-Law and I dont think I could have my Mother-In-Law in there.

I know my sister in law had my Mother-In-Law and my Mother-In-Law talks about how much she appreciated it ( hinting at me letting her too) but i just cant.

My Darling Husband will be there and I would like to include both my mother and MIL!

My Mother-In-Law only had boys so if she wants to be in there I would love it!
