Do you plan on having a baby meet and greet after the baby is born?

Nope. The last thing I want is a ton of people overwhelming me at our house after the babys born. Immediate family can come meet baby after the birth while Im still on the after delivery high. And then I want everyone to leave us alone for a week.

We plan on having one probably about a month or so after. Or we might just wait until Everett's 2nd birthday party

I don't even know. It all depends on a million factors, mostly the where we're going to be living part. I know my parents and I think one of my sisters are coming out after the baby is born. But we have to move by June 30. So I guess if we stay in town we might have people over after we get settled, but if we move out of state, then no, because we won't know anyone to have over

Possibly. We've talked about doing a picnic for the 4th, depending on when baby actually comes.

We wanted to with M when she was a couple months old, but then DH got a job across the country so we were suddenly overwhelmed in preparing for that and never did a party. I would like to do one with this baby but it will probably be pretty low key.

For two weeks after the birth no one is allowed in my house unless they are 1) bringing food, 2) helping with DD haha when DD was born it was December 14th so we did have some people over for Christmas but they just ordered us chinese food. I'm usually a quiet laid back person but when i'm firm about something I make it very clear. We won't have any kind of meet and greet. People can start stopping by once things calm down. Both sets of grandparents will just see baby in the hospital and then step back for awhile

Probably won't here. I will be recovering from a c-section and I am sure I will be looking like crap as well as my house so I am pretty sure I will be in hibernation lol. But I guess we will see how I am feeling!

I do love going to other people's meet the baby parties though And we are having babies at a time of year that sickness is low so that is nice!

The reason we want to is our whole family is 4 1/2 hours away or more. The only people that would make the drive are my parents. So if we waited until she was a month or added it to Everett's birthday party we have those at my parents house.

Yea, we'll probably do something like this too. DS and DD2's bdays are late August so baby will be "prettier" by then (yea, I said it!) And after recovering for a c/s, that will be the first time I'll want to deal with ppl socially. So, may just have a big bday/meet baby event then. Maybe not. We'll just wait and see come August what's feasible.

Sort of - we are catholic so everyone will be able to meet the baby at his/her baptism. Our church has one baptism weekend a month so DS was almost 3 months old before we found a weekend that fit our schedule so not sure exactly when this one will be baptized but everyone can meet them then. =)

Everett is a late August baby too.

Honestly, I'd rather put a "Leave us the h**l alone" sign on the door. I know my inlaws are going to be a royal PITA, as they live 3 streets over from us. I'm dreading it already.

I don't think we'll have a party for her until after she is dedicated at church (probably at a month old or so). Everyone will probably have met her already. My family is all nearby and will likely come to the hospital. DH's mom will probably fly for the birth like she did with DD (altho I will NOT see her until after the baby is born, I almost killed her when I was in labor with DD). I am not exactly a social butterfly. I just have a few really close friends that I've known forever and stick mainly to that crew. I'm sure they will all either stop by the hospital or come by the house in the first few weeks. I would love to have people visit a couple at a time, rather than all at once. I do love to have groups of people over, but I don't think I will have the energy to do things up the way I like to before the dedication.

Nope nope nope. I was soooooooo overwhelmed last time with my mom in town and then DH's entire family came over in one day and they were just passing her around in a circle. I had to take her back into the bedroom several times to nurse her and calm her down because it was overwhelming for her, too. This time I've even asked my out-of-town family to come visit one at a time, a few weeks after the birth when DH goes back to work and I'll need help. His family, who lives here, can come visit in pairs but I won't have everybody crammed into this tiny apartment at one time again. They're welcome to take DD out to do stuff so DH and I can rest, too. Our friends know to stay away for a few days and then they can visit if they bring food and don't stay long.
