do you let how you feel about your MIL affect how/when she sees your child?

my friend said she could never keep her son from his gma no matter how she felt about me a bitch but i have NO problem not letting her see my baby, ONLY when i am there will she be around my child. , not letting her in the delivery room, and not inviting her to the shower. thats just me though.

i love my MIL. she helps us a lot. i didn't want her in the delivery room though. the only people that were going to be in there were my DH and my uncle. i was gonna let my uncle because he had just become a LPN and wanted to see the delivery. who cares at that point right?! lol. anyways i had to have  a csection so noone was in there but dr's nurses and my DH. with the second it will be the same. a csect so just the DH. but my MIL is comming and will be at the hosp. we live in TX and all our fam is in al and my mom is in fl soooo,

My mil and Sil wanted to be in the delivery room with me.. My mom i think wanted to but understood i only wanted my husband.. my mil threw a fit and got mad bc i changed nurses during my stay.. the first nurse wouldnt tell me or my husband anything shed go to my mil and tell her everything.. so if i wanted to know what was going on i had to ask her.. this nurse also yelled at me bc i was in so much pain and i know im not the only person to have a baby but that was my first time i had been in the darn bed for over 24 hours already and i was in so much pain that i was crying and the nurse had the nerve to look at me and say " you know your not the only woman give birth so suck it and quit your crying" my mom saw how upset i was and asked for a new nurse wjho wouldnt tell my mil anything.. she told her if she wanted to know something ask me... that nurse rocked she was very personal....when i gave birth to my daughter i lost so much blood and passed out... and no one on his side could care less how i was and his mom kept asking him how the baby was and he looked at her and said until my wifes okay you dont need to know how the baby is.  and then can you imagin when the nurse told her i had a special request that no one hold lily except my husband until i did... i didnt hold her untill she was about 12 hours old:(
