The saga continues. DH and I haven't responded to anything. His grandma is now firing away, saying that I am tearing the family apart because WE (DH and I) only want immediate family at the hospital. She also threw in a few choice words about how she "feels" about his choice in a wife. Really, lady? We are two weeks away from having a baby (who you claim you want to see) and you choose right now to do this? Tactful.
They are making a case of why they should be present right after the birth...blah blah. This is getting exhausting. Like I said, we are responding to nothing as this is ridiculous and requires no further explanation from us.
I guess I will never understand why others feel the need to make situations all about them. Weddings, births... all of it. We invited you to come over after we are home and settled. We want minimal visitors in the hospital. That's ALL we had to say- but we went a step further and told you why. VERY POLITELY.
His family saying awful things about us and trying to make a "case" for themselves is ridiculous. And annoying. Especially when my extended family was extremely supportive.
Sorry for the constant drama about this- Again, it wasn't an issue we felt we should share with my family or our friends. We didn't think that their involvement would help the situation. I had to tell SOMEONE so I came here.
