Definitely mine. My parents have been so much help to us throughout my pregnancy and purchasing baby items for their house as well so that we don't have to haul stuff over when she visits. DFs mom says how she wants o spend so much time with the baby and babysit but I don't trust her with my child so that want happen...we are only ever around his dad at holidays and I doubt that will change after we have our daughter.

It's not a fair question in our situation, because my mom is the only one here. His parents are four hours away. I think all involved will be fantastic grandparents, though. It's the first grandchild for everyone, so they're all excited. :)

I will go with mine because me and the kids have never met DH's parents or siblings.

I have to say his. This is my parents 5th grandchild...they aren't really excited about it. But this is his parents first grandchild and good lord!!! They are so excited. His mom came to my first US at 8wks and she's coming to my next one when I will be 21wks too.
