I'm due in October. One of my best friends told me it was her dream to see a baby being born. She is older and single and she won't have babies of her own. He made that comment when I first found out I was pregnant and gave her the news. This is my complete mistake: I told her she could be in the delivery room with us. Big mistake! I should have consulted with my husband first. I have had a rough pregnancy. I had a dvt at 13 weeks. Getting better though. I mention this because I have not been in the best of the moods and I have no energy. I'm on blood thinners and they will switch me to a different medication when I deliver. It seems to me there's so much to worry about the day of the delivery because of my blood. Thank God baby is doing wonderful!
Going back to my friend... She hasn't been very helpful recently. She is always there and is the sweetest person. But I just learned that in stressful moments she looses it. She is the type of person who would say thins like: "I have been so worried about you, I cry a lot because of all you've been going through". Does that help? I am the one calming her down all the time when the one going through this is me!! Do you want someone like that in the delivery room with you?
How do I tell her we don't want to share that moment with her without hurting her feelings. On top of that she is very sensitive. Sorry it got so long.
