It's hard because I want to see the baby when she is born, I don't want to have to wedge my way in between friends when I am family and I want to be there for the moment my sister becomes a mom. I guess I need to put my feelings aside, it's the right thing to do...but it's hard. My sister was either in the room when I delivered or in the waiting room when I delivered...I don't just stinks.
I think everyone has great points here...I understand you being upset, but also remember this is her baby and she has the right to make her own birth plan. I would agree that she doesn't think you're "not welcome," just that she doesn't want to inconvenience you if it's a long wait.

If you have time, you might request of her what you addressed above--that you get a "first look" at your niece before her friends.
