Sil stoped by today to see the kids. She started saying something about how her and mil were talking about how many people would be in the room while I gave birth if I let them. She had about ten people before I said uumm no one besides me and dh will be in there.......

Not my mom, not his mom. Just us. Nice try though. 

Dh was half asleep when this happened but he heard. Later he was like yeah Im not letting anyone else in, thats our time to bond with baby and for you to bf in peace.


So how many people did you have in there when you actually gave birth.

WIth my 1st I had my husband and my Mom.
With my 2nd I had my sister, my best friend and my MIL (my husband was at BCT).
With my 3rd it was my Mom and my husband.
WIth my 4th it was my Mom, my oldest son (he was 5 at the time), my daughter (who was 4) was in and out of the room, and my husband.
This time will probably be my niece, my husband, my doula and my oldest child (who will be 8 1/2 and my youngest who is 3).

Just me and DH too.  Unless for some reason I decide during I need my mom there, but definitely not his!  She's wonderful, but I know at that time MIL would drive me nuts!!

Just me and my husband every time. At the very beginning of labor I let immediate family come in and give their hugs and best wishes, but once I start feeling the contractions no one is allowed in, but my husband.

Just df and I. We didn't even tell anyone other than his parents and my dad that we were at the hospital. Ds was born Friday night and we didn't publicly announce his birth until Sunday morning.
I plan to do the same with this baby, except that mil will be watching ds and probably insist they visit within 24 hours of Baby's arrival like last time.

It was me, my husband, and my doula. (and of course the nurses). After though, they took us to another room and my family was already waiting XP I don't even remember announcing I was in labor...
