I don’t know about you all but as a FTM the “grandparents” meaning my parents and in-laws are on my last nerve!
They are super excited which is great but completely overzealous with this “my baby” stuff. All hell broke loose because they were informed that hubby and I just want to be alone in the hospital for maybe a week or two when we come home to bond & get adjusted to being parents. They acted like it was world war 3 and we were keeping the baby from them.
I just know myself and I need time to learn how to be a mom and BF privately. Who really wants people around after pushing out a baby & having your boobs out every 2 hours to feed. I thought the ask was simple but we clearly hit a nerve. My husband is on board with whatever I need thankfully so I’m sticking to my guns. It just feels like he’s the only who cares about my well being in all of this. Everyone else is worried about themselves & when they get to see OUR baby
Sorry for the rant. Who did you have with you before and after delivery? Would you have done anything differently?
