So my family is very superstitious when it comes closer to giving labor. The full moons, the safety pins and all that. I'll be 37wks on the 17th and my due date isn't till Jan 6 but my family is already starting to feel that this baby is going to be due this month. Anyhow as the day comes closer I hear my mom say she wants to be in the room when I give birth and honestly I dont want her in there when its time for me to push. She was in the room when my daughter was born and I absolutely hated it. When she mentioned that she wanted to be in the room this time around I told her I didn't mind her being in the room before just when it was time for me to push I wanted just my boyfriend and I in there. Well let me tell u she did not like that answer at all. She feels that since I'm a girl and she's my mom she's entitled to be in there. So my thing is how do I remind her again in a nice way that I would like her to be there just not at the time of giving birth.
