I'm trying to decide who I will pick as my support people for labor and delivery. At our hospital we get to have three that will be able to come and go as they please.  My DF is is deffinatly going to be one, my mom will be another.  I'm not sure if its appropriate to have my dad as one or if I should ask my sister in law (who I am vry close with).  I don't want my dad to feel left out but I know I'm going to be in a somewhat comprimised position....any thoughts??? What is everyone else doing?

i am having my hubby and his best friend. Here we are allowed 2 people. Hubbys friend has been thru a lot with us and is an honorary uncle so it just makes sense to invite him. The only thing I told him is that he has to stay up top...no peeking at the action LOL

I'm going to have my hubby, and my dad (I lost my mom 2 years ago), and depending on how many more, I need another person for pictures, so probably my cousin who is the Godmother, or my one sister who has been like my mother figure, or my MIL.. one of those 3

Just my Mom since my hubby is deployed and the rest of my family is across the country. Fingers crossed that my Mom gets here before the baby comes or else I'll be alone.

same predictiment here to, my mom has to fly in, in time too, so my husband can be in the room, we live 12 hour from any family and we have 2 other kids, if she doesnt get here in time then my hubby will have to stay with our other children, last time my mom flew in when i was in the hosptial and had to take a taxi to the hospital and got here just in time like with in an hour or two, so hubby was able to be there with me.

I have no idea.  Only person I have here is my hubby.   My mom isn't expecting me to go in to labor until October when my due date is in Sept, so she said once I go in to labor to call her.  Well I have a good chance of having the kid before she gets here, 2 states away.   I don't have any close friends here.  So my daughter if she is allowed to be there?
