From a couple weeks ago? I voiced my plan that we would have no visitors until Thanksgiving (LO is Due around Oct.15). I thought my MIL would take this news the worst, but apparently DH already talked to her about it and she's fine with it...
But my mother!!! I wasn't intending to talk to her about this until we had cemented our plans much later (I mean I'm only 10 weeks), but she asked me today if she could come up and stay with me to help when baby is born. I told her our tentative plan and she basically said "no way" and that she'll camp on my doorstep until she is allowed inside to meet LO.
Apparently getting my alone time to bond with baby is very selfish and deprives the grandparents of their grandchild. I had not thought of it this way, thinking that I really wanted some quiet time to bond as a family and adjust to things being different before throwing visitors into the mix.
Can I get some good honest feedback? I really need an outsider perspective...I mean, I know we have months and months to plan, but I am feeling so conflicted...somewhere between guilty for keeping her away and mad that she wouldn't respect my wishes.
