Who did/want in the delivery room? How was labour?

I had my wonderful SO, mom and my aunt. I had my aunt there because she lived in the same city as me, and my mom lived 6 hours away.
LOL But my little one wanted her Zsa Zsa very much to be there, I went through a whole 28 hr labour to have my mom be there in the end. As soon as my mom walked through that door I started to cry, and the nurse said that I was 7 centimetres dialated and ready to push =)

  • I had only my husband in with me for babies #1 & 2. Then, when our daughter & son (babies 1 & 2) were 21 & 14, they were in with my husband and me for baby #3, along with my mom & dad. Baby #4 was an emerg c-sec, so my husband couldn't be in with me. I did have my Dr., and another OB specialist, a NICU Dr., & several nurses in for baby #4.

  • I had my SO with me, and that's how I wanted it. I had to be induced, so we went to the hospital Sunday evening, and instructed his family not to show up until Monday, and even then, they were not allowed to be in the room at all. We did allow them to come into the room an hour after the baby was born. It was nice having a little bonding time before the thongs of family members showed up!

    (My family lives 3000 miles away)

    Along with SO, my doctor, his 3 student doctors, and an assortment of nurses were on hand, all of which were VERY helpful!!

  • my SO (her father) and my mom.. my dad was there until I was about 4 centimeters dialated, ( I was induced) and he was driving me nuts, so I kicked him out. lol. my brother was across the hall with his gf and her mom waiting for his son to be born. they were born (my brothers son, and my daughter) an hour and a half apart :)

  • Preg #1: No one because ex-husband wasn't interested at all. My MIL was there, though, and blurted out, "Wow, I never thought you were a REAL redhead until I saw you give birth!" She was talking about the color of my pubes. Nice, huh?

    Preg #2: DH#2 (current and forever hubby).
    Preg #3: DH.
