That's an awful place to be put in.

I have to say that I felt obligated by DH to have my MIL visit at the hospital the next day. It made me uncomfortable from the start, because I knew I'd be trying to nurse and she's a bit of an attention hog.

It's still really hard for me to look back at that day knowing she was there. There are more pictures of her holding Levi at the hospital than me. There are even some pictures of her with Levi and DH. We got none of the 3 of us. It was a happy day, it was just a whirlwind, and her negative energy wasn't needed.

I couldn't imagine having her actually in the room. That would have been even more awful. Definitely stick to your guns. I regret so much not sticking to mine. It just wasn't worth it. This time she's not going to be invited to the hospital at all. She's having no part in our baby's birth. Not her place. Looking back I think W T F was she doing there?!

Sorry for my rant... it just sounds like you have a similar situation with DH and MIL as I had.

I really hope your DH comes to your side on his own.
