I would have someone there for them too. They were only awake for the last 2 hours of my labor with Kya but I definitely needed someone to distract them for a while. They got a little TOO involved and it was disrupting my concentration. My younger sister was there (and not terribly interested in witnessing the whole birthing process ) so she took them to their bedroom for a while. It was definitely a blessing. Unless you are okay with Dh or your BF helping out with them, I'd get someone else. And you can always make it an "on call" situation and determine when labor starts whether you need them. If you go into labor right after the girls go to bed and likely will have the baby before they wake up there's no need for that person, ya know..
