Just wondering who you've decided you want in the room with you, and your SO, when in labor and delivering your lil bean?

I had my hubby and my mom with me the first time. I'm thinking I'll do the same unless my mom stays out this time to watch my son for me

I have always had my mom there, and my SO. This time will be the same, PLUS my older two kiddos and I think my dad wanted to be there too. He has never been able to because he is the one who watched the older kids... and since they will be there, he can be there too.

It will be just me and my SO. My mom lives out of state, and his mom lives on another continent, so it will be just us. Our parents will likely visit right after the birth.

As or right now, I just want my DH and the other necessary (i.e., doctor, nurses) people. If my mom were there, then his mom would want to be there... I'm just not comfortable with that. Although, if at the time I feel like I need my mom, I'd ask for her and just say that my MIL can see the baby right after.

Just DH!!! He was the only one there when this baby was conceived he's the only one that will be there when it's born.

My mom was in town when Dean was born because she was watching Grant. Dean was born around 10am and she came up around 1pm.

I'm the same way Lauren. As of right now it is just going to be me and DH and of course the Dr. I think it will just be easier I guess you could say if neither mom or MIL are in there. I'm sure I will be scared out of my mind as it is so the less people the better!

Just my husband and medical people and my husband is under strict orders to not irrate me.


The rest of my family can wait outside or at my house. Either my mom or MIL will be at my place with Evelyn.

I like your thinking, Barbara!! lol!

For me? 1st time was my mom and my son's father. I had a couple people in the waiting room, but between the 24 hours of labor and my screaming and swearing echoing through the halls, they never made it into the room. lol!
My 2nd, first for my SO, was my mom, SO, and MIL. Was not planning on his mom being in the room, when I delivered DD, but my mom convinced her to stay. At that point, I couldn't care if the circus was in the room! I just wanted to deliver her!!! lol! Glad she was there, even though she isn't the most supportive, cause that was the first grandchild she actual saw being born.
My third...SO and his mom, were there. My mom was at home with my other two. Wish she was there, cause she passed away less than a year after.
This time, because my mom isn't here to watch the kids, it will be SO for sure. If SO's brother and SIL watch the kids, then I'm sure my MIL will be there too. We'll see if her attitude changes by then!!

With my first it was just DH and me. I think thatís how Iím going to keep it. My MIL RELLY wanted to be there with DS to watch but I just couldnít let her. For me itís a provide thing that I like to share with only DH.

I am really not sure yet. Last time I had DH, my mom and MIL. Things were cramped in the room and they almost made me choose one to stay out of the room. This time I will be delivering at a different hospital. I am leaning towards just my DH this time. MIL already said she will watch DS for me.

Is it weird I'm not sure if I want DH in with me? I want to deliver at a birth center (you know, hands and knees, that sort of thing) and I don't know if it's something I want someone to watch me do. That might change when it's closer, though
