...who do you want to be present? Will the baby's father be there? What about other family or friends?

I was really flexible about a lot of things when I was pregnant, but one thing I was adamant about was that I wanted DH and ONLY DH in the room when I was in labor & delivering. I was very glad when none of his family decided to drive up for the event, because I would have given them keys to my house and told them I'd see them in a day or two.

ONLY the babies father. I'd feel extremely uncomfortable about anyone else being there.

he was there when it went in, he can be there when it comes out!

Right now I am planning on DH and my mom, and maybe my best friend. She's due with her second only a week after me, so if she goes early or I go late, she may be busy at home herself.

I may tell my mom and dad I'm in labour but otherwise no one but my boyfriend will know. I'm actually thinking I don't want mom and dad there since they live about 45 minutes away now, their car died and so even if they find a new one soon they won't be used to driving it, AND the roads they would have to take to get here are horrible in winter. Besides, my mom said she can't bear to see me in pain and I figure maybe it's just easier if she stays home!

We live out of state so unless I give birth the week of my due date then I wont have any other family in town anyway.

My Mom & My Best Friend I know are planning on being up here when I go into labor (they both live 2.5hrs away). I don't mind people being here while I am in Labor, especially them, but once it gets to the point of delivery I just want my Hubby & the hospital staff. Everyone that may be there can then wait in the waiting room. This is actually what it was like for my best friend as well, I was there for her 2 kids, but just during labor & then in the waiting room during the birth.

My husband, my mother and my doula will be there for the labor for sure and possibly my dad (he says if Im screeming or anything like that he wont be able to handle it, haha). During the actual birth it will probaby be the same people minus my dad.
