  • No, but she barged in a few times thinking the baby had been born (I was apparently screaming like a newborn baby???)..

  • No, c-section for both. Only hubby was there, with my mom plastered to the outside of the door.

    But MIL came by as soon as we were back in the room. She is a great lady with all boys and I am the only wife, so I am pretty much her only source of grandchildren! She is a very modest lady so I don't think she would be very comfortable in the delivery room.

  • No! I thought I should get to decide who I'm comfortable having in there with me and who I'm not. They were in town and at the hospital, so they saw him within minutes of being born though. I only wanted my mom and my husband with me.

  • Nope. I had a c section, the only one in there was my exhusband (he was my husband at the time, lol). However, if I had been able to deliver naturally, I wanted him and my mom in there no one else.

  • My MIL is fine and if she wants to be in the room when I deliver, that's fine. But if I'm only allowed to have 2 in the room, it's going to be my mom and my husband. She'll just have to understand that.

  • No. It was my mom and my dh. There was only one time she was in town and could have been there.
