lavonnallama:If either sets of parents can get into town before we're discharged and find their way to the hospital, they are welcome. Otherwise, we'll see them at home whenever they arrive.nbsp;
#1 Love the picture... made my night
#2 I would much rather a candy striper uniform....
#3 We had a constant flow of visitors from 8am the morning after M was born (and she was born at 7:30pm) until about 11 that night. It was awful. This time we are being VERY firm about no visitors in the hospital except for my mom (who will bring M of course) and MIL. We also won't be having any visitors once we're home except maybe SIL and my dad.
We'll have a "July 4th Meet the BaByQ" after a few weeks for everyone to come see him.
Grandparents definitely and my brother and his family if they want to come by. Also maybe fiance's close friend.
I live in a small town, and the hospital is a 15 min drive/20 min jog from where we live so it's possible I could be hugely underestimating how many people will actually try to come by. With any luck it will only be the people mentioned above, but you never can tell who future MIL might bring with her or invite.
I didn't think we had so many visitors the last 2 times but once you add both my mom/stepdad, F/MIL, older DDs, and my aunt that's already 7! Plus a couple close friends who work at the hospital and we'll be pushing 10.
My dad/stepmom, our siblings, extended family, and friends bearing food will probably come over to the house within the first 2wks.
That picture! SO good!
My parents and IL will be welcome, as well as whatever siblings want to come visit. DH's grandparents will probably also want to come. That could put us at 12 people if everyone shows up, but I don't think everyone will.
So I said only my parents ... but the realized it will probably be more like 5 or 6.
My parents, my brother, maybe my brother's gf, my DD, and my DH aunt.
I'm sure people will be in and out of the house with in hours of his birth. I don't mind. I like showing off my new squish.
That totally doesn't mean that everyone gets to hold him though. Eff that noise.
I voted "just my parents" but then I remembered that my brother and sister will probably come with them.
DH's family isn't visiting until later and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to have any friends come. They've all been understanding about waiting until I feel like it.
