  • Nope, I think it's really rude that they didn't give you some time alone. I'm sure they were just really excited, and maybe thought you wanted company, but still...common sense should have told them that you would want some time to rest and be alone with your new baby.

  • Oh crap, I didn't realize you posted this on another question, I answered you on my question, lol. Nope, I don't think you are wrong for being mad! I would have been too! Sometimes people need to know when to back off and let mother and child bond alone!

  • they stayed in your room? That is just a little weird. If my in-laws tried that (well to be honest they wouldnt they didnt even come to the hospital any of the 3 times we had babies) I would have kicked them out, Im suprised the hospital didnt.

    Its one thing for hubby to stay but his parents? that is just strange.

  • F@#$ I would be super pissed. I don't take my big moments being ruined easily. I mean a person only gets a handful of big moment oppurtunities so why can't everything just go your ways on those days.

  • If that seemed like it might happen to me i would've told them to LEAVE! ...i love my MIL. Really do. i think she's a great person. But she has had to learn not to constantly invade my space and not to take it so personal.
    But if i was in your shoes. Yes. i'd be angry.

  • Well I may be the odd ball but I think it is sweet that they stayed with you. It shows they care about you and the baby :)
    I would have put them to work and made them pull the curtain or said excuse me while I feed my son etc.
    Sometimes special moments are special even if they are not exactly as we thought it would be or planned. And it sounds like your son is going to have great grandparents that really care. I know maybe you won’t like this but he is there’s also and I am sure his birth was a day they had dreamed of too. I have a feeling you might get it in another 30 years when you look at your grandchild for the 1st time.
    Good Luck Mama and there are so many more awesome moments to come~

  • I can't really sympethize with you sorry. While I was in labor and after I had my first son I was a BITCH and I know it. I even kicked my mom out while I was in labor. I'm sorry but no sane pregnant woman who's in labor wants a damn camera shoved in her face.
    I think they should have visited but then went along their marry way. Why didn't your husband say anything?

  • My sister in law was very overwhelmed because of in laws visiting. She had a sign put on the door by the nurses that she needed to rest and finally got some alone time.
    When I had my daughter there was a teenager that had given birth and had a ton of friends visiting. Ticked me off! They were loud and took over the whole room. They were making prank calls from the hospital phone. I was so tired and felt like heck. Finally after another lady and I had both complained they were kicked out.
