DS - My ex
DD - My ex and my best friend Darla (who drove 8 hours to be there)
For my daughter I had quite a crowd. I had DH(then DF), my mom, DH's sister, my grandma, my daughter's god mother and one of my friends, as well as staff. The reason that many were there was because I had been progressing really slowly all day and they were there keeping me company and all of a sudden in 30 minutes I went from 7 to complete.
With my son, I was induced at 7:30 am. My daughter came to hospital to be picked up by my parents. Because everything went very quickly with him, my family didn't even leave the hospital. I had DH, my doula, my mother, and staff there. My ob/gyn barely had time to get there. One of the nurses actually held her hair back because she didn't have time to put it back, lol.
DH, my mom, my grandma, and DH's grandma. :( I was so mad. DH's grandma was not supposed to be in there. We told her that they hospital would only allow 3 people. She went behind our backs and asked the doctor and they let her in. I was pissed, but I was about to push and didn't want to waste the energy. This time, everyone, including the doctor's, will know who is allowed in the room.
My husband and the midwives.
The doctor came in at the last minute with my first because she was in distress.
DH with baby #1 (c-section after 24 hours of labor)

Baby #3 is on the way and of course it will just be DH again
