My hubbys sister wants to be at the birth, which is fine. I have made it clear I only want me and hubby in the room during the birth. She recently asked if she could be in the room because she can't have children and wants to experience what a birth is like. I completely understand the request, but haven't made a decision and I'm scheduled for induction on May 1 St. what are your opinions?

If you aren't comfortable then don't do it...

I have to say I don't think I would be comfortable! With saying that though I have to add that if I had a vaginal birth I was going to have my mother and my husband in the room! I would not have allowed his mother in the room though!

You're choice. If you want her in, let her. If not, just say no. :)

If you feel comfortable with her being there, then let her be there. If not, tell her no.

If I was close to her, I'd let her in. Especially if she wants to be there for the experience since she'll never experience it herself.



I'm thinking about letting SO's brothers girlfriend in with me. I like her, and she said she'd hold the camera and not pass out (unlike SO probably will) :lol:

I would. I allowed anyone who wanted to be there watch. It's exciting!

I should say it's your decision, but being on the other end of this makes me feel bad. My little stepsister and I are pretty close since we are the only girls out of 7 of us. When she got pregnant, I just kinda assumed I would be there when she had her daughter. Well when she went into labor, I told her I'd be there ASAP and she told me she didn't want anyone there and would let me know when I can come. It seriously hurt so bad, I cried for hours.

I feel like this will be me :lol: I'll more than likely let anyone in there... though I'm not sure about my mother. I love her, but GODDAMN she's dramatic :lol:

Tell him not to lock his knees. DH was so focused on me that he locked his knees and almost passed out. Twice. The nurses had to bring him juice, too. Lol.

Hubby isn't allowed to watch the birth he can only stand by my head, I guess I don't want someone to miss out on an experience.. But I would rather do this alone. I'm only letting hubby stay just because he feels its his right, which I guess it is..
