So I'm a stepmom to two boys. I'm pregnant with my first. I've brought the kids to prenatal appointments so they could see her and hear her heartbeat. Now DH is saying that maybe they should be in the room when she's born. No!!! I want it to be just me and DH. I feel like it's such a personal moment and now how aunt is trying to guilt me into allowing it. I mean damn! Can't I have one thing in my marriage that I don't have to share.

I'd be glad for them to come see her when she is born but I just don't want them in the delivery room

I agree with you. I don't think (especially young) siblings should be in the delivery room period. It doesn't matter if they are step children or not. It's for adults only. They can come in afterward. Stick to your guns.

I wouldn't want my kids in there, period. Labor is hard enough without worrying about your step kiddos.

No f'ing way would I allow that.

For me it's not a step-issue, it's just a kid issue. When I was giving birth I just wanted to focus on the task at hand. No kids in the room.

Having children, or anyone, in the delivery room is a personal choice. You're not required to have anyone in there that you aren't comfortable with.
