Who do you plan on having and why? Just totally curious!

With DD (our first) we had my mom and my two sisters. It was LOUD and choatic and I swore I would NEVER allow people in the room again. Being my first, all I heard was THEIR stories and how THEIR labour went as I was in so much pain. I was mad because I did not care and it was not about them, it was about me and I felt my limelight was taken away.

When we had our son, it was just DH and I and although it upset our family, I did not care. It was perfect. Just him and I and no one bugging me, telling me it will be okay or that they see the head or telling me to breathe etc etc. It was just DH (and the dr's of course) quietly telling me how wonderful I was doing. It was amazing! After he was here THEN we allowed people in the room....

IMO, it was SO much nicer that way, at least it was in our experience!

With this baby, it will be the same. No one other than DH and I wouldn't want it any other way!

My only advice for first time mommies is don't allow people in the room that are real attention getters or act like they know it all....Just MY opinion! It was very annoying! haha

I did the same the first time around. Halfway into labor I had the nurse inform everyone they were not allowed back in! lol Honestly, why do people think that when you're in labor it's a good time for a visit? It's not! This time, my in-laws won't be told that I'm even in labor. I DID NOT like my father-in-law in the room with me at all. My mom will know because she'll be taking care of DD.

With our son, we didn't tell anyone I was in labour until we had him! NOT totally by choice but I had him so quick that I didn't even have time to tell myself what was going on! I went to the hospital thinking it was false labour to holding him in my arms an hour later. So no one would have made it even if I wanted them to!

I like quiet...

That sounds like a nice, fast labor. =D I read a labor story once where this lady was on #5 pregnancy, her water broke in her den, and immediately the head was out. No labor at all. That is what I'd like! lol I think that story might have been on this site. But going to the hospital and almost immediately having a baby is also a very nice way to have a baby.

I thought about letting both our moms in, but then our dads might feel left out. So I might just limit it to DH (who probably doesn't really want to be there!) He keep saying he doesn't want to watch, but that might change when it's actually happening and he has the chance to see his child enter the world.

My DH said that, and now that he's been through it, he tells everyone is was the most amazing experience of his life and he can't wait to do it again.

Lol there is hope!!!

As far as the OP, it will be DH, the doula, and myself along with medical personel.

DH and 2 midwives. I managed to tell my mom the other day that she is not invited. She was ok with it which was a HUGE shock and relief! I might also have my sister because she is a photographer and would be able to document the event very well.

It depends on if my cousin and mom are out here in time for the birth. My mom's main goal is to just see the baby and I wouldn't mind her in there. But my cousin, I don't know. I was there for her last birth but she's one of those know it alls and I'd have no problem telling her to get out of the room if she started getting on my nerves.

It will more than likely just be DH. If I decide to have a doula then she'll be there too. Labor with DS was so calm and peaceful with just the two of them there and my nurse coming in when she needed to.

I agree with not letting people in if they're going to make it about them, especially during the really painful parts when you need it to be calm so you can focus!
