; that is the question.
Aside from every thing else running through my mind. I've been thinking a lot lately about the delivery room debacle. Who stays in? Who stays out? Pre-pregnancy I always said it would just be Hardy and I, because I want it to be as intimate as possible as we officially start our family. Then after becoming pregnant, I've been asked who's going to be in the room with us and I've found myself teeter tottering.
One day I feel comfortable having my friend in there with us, she would be a neutral person from neither one of our families, but would also make sure I'm taken care of in the process. Then I think about having my mom in there because, duh, she's my mom and our relationship is special. Then the "worrier" in me wonders if my MIL will feel left out if she's not invited in. Granted what I have with my own mother is worlds different than what I have with my MIL and I feel by default my mom can do whatever I want her too, lol. But all of those options take away from what I've said all this time - that it would just be us two.
I know people can change their minds, but I would rather have my mind made up before ever being admitted so it would be one less stress. Hardy has been pretty mum about it, saying we can do whatever I want. But I think sometimes I seek justification of my own decision so I feel better about it - does that make sense?
Sometimes I wish I didn't "care" as much as I do so it might be easier to make decisions. Even if they are personal decisions, I always seem to worry about how it will effect others.
So did you/didn't you have in the delivery room and WHY?
