Greetings ladies,

I am pregnant with my 1st child. I'm due June 26th! The other day, I was mentioning to my DH that my best friend (who is piratically my sister) was ecstatic that I invited her into the L&D room with me. My hospital allows 3 people in the Delivery Room.
He was completely surprised and angry that I did not want his mother (my MIL) in the room. He told me, "she is my mother and she has a right to see her grandchild being born." Keep in mind, this is not her first grandchild. His sister has two kids, who his mother witnessed both births.

I told him that I wanted him, my mother and my best friend in the room with me for support. He just didn't understand why His mother was not allowed in the room and then proceeded to tell me that his sister was upset about my decision.

At the end of the day, in my logic, this is a very private, PERSONAL, INTIMATE moment for a women...right? Am I wrong to not want my MIL in the room with me!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Thank you Ladies!!!!
