I have a 13 year old daughter from a previous relationship. I am currently expecting baby #2 with my husband. We have been together for 7 years. My daughter has had some ups and downs dealing with the new baby coming along and the changes it will bring...even more so since we are having a girl. In fact, her words to us in the beginning of the pregnancy were "I'm afraid you will love the baby more than me since it is from the both of you and I am not." She has said she wants to be in the room when the baby is born. I think it is super important for her to be there if she really wants to along with my husband as we share the special moment as a family. However, my husband is objecting to this. He does not want her there and feels that there are some things that just he and I should share. He is worried that he won't be able to fully experience everything if he is worried about "parenting" if my daughter is in there too. He does suffer from anxiety attacks. I am so torn as I feel completely different about the situation. I feel like we will be starting our family "divided" and making her feel like an "outsider" if my daughter is banned from the delivery room and left to wait with everyone else. Any thoughts?
