Am I weird?

Am I so abnormal? 

I don't do the entire family, village thing. I don't like fifty people (exaggeration of course) involved in everything. Especially the birth of my child. I am very private, I only had my SO and the nursing staff in the delivery room with me. That is how I plan to do it again.

I know everyone is different but am I that odd?

I personally don't like a lot of people in the room. I just have my DH but then again I had c sections. The next one I planon a HBA3C and I just want Dh and midwife there.

Not weird at all! I jyst wanted hubby and medical staff there. Actually, I just wanted hubby but I had a hospital birth so the medical staff came with the package lol. I couldn't imagine anyone else. I think it's strange to have lots of people there. I certainly wasn't at my best in labor and I would hate to snap at someone for talking. I wanted SILENCE! Lol

If I had what I wanted I would have no one but me. I labor very well by myself, but with hubby and medical staff I feel uncomfortable
