No, I did not! My husband told me two friends were on the way, and I said, "Tel them to turn back and that I died in childbirth." I only let my dad and sister visit (my mom died a while ago).
By my third baby I asked people to wait until I was home. I only had a coupld surprise visitors but it was fine. I didn't have rules. The hospital had visiting hours and posted hand washing signs.
I only wanted dh there when I was giving birth. I was happy with visitors after. I had her 6 am and everyone came that afternoon and night. I was fine with it.
Never stop smiling like the sun never stops shining...
No! I was exhausted, sore, and my lipstick had worn off :)
We asked that nobody come to the hospital until the next day. We had nobody in the waiting room or in my room aside from my husband. I did let my mom come up at midnight the night he was born (he was born at 9:23), but that was it until after lunch the next day. After that, I really didn't care who came when. I just wanted some time to have some peace and quiet and spend time with him before everyone came to hold him.
