Ok so, I'm 38 weeks pregnant and at our first sonogram my mil asked if was was going to be in the room during delivery (our hospital allows 2 people in the delivery room with you) I politely said yes, unless my dad is here, he lives out of state but will be flying down in a few days and staying a few weeks. Both my mil and my hubby said its weird that I would pick my dad over her to be there for me. First off, I grew up without my mom, I've very close to my dad, I'm his only child and this is his first grandchild. My hubby is the baby of the family, I get that his momma is excited, this will be her 13th grandchild and she has been there for the birth of most of them. Am I wrong or weird to want my dad there for and to experiencethe birth of his grandson? This is my first baby, and yes I'm nervous!
