OK I am obviously a FTM and as many of you know I am expecting frat twin girls in just a few weeks... not only is a baby enough to send grandparents crazy, but TWO?
My husband and I are very close with my family... my mother who lives down the st from us will be attending the birth, and my sisters will be at the hospital as soon as I am in recovery room.... but his family lives a few hours drive away, and we are not very close with them. His mother was not the best and still isn't... but I'm not going to forbid her from seeing her grandbabies. Shes just DEF not babysitting...ever.
But seeing as these are our first kids, and we've been planning this pregnancy for over 5 years, we really want time to ourselves once we bring the babies home. No interruptions... we just want to bask in the newness and just fall inlove with eachother. plus I will be exclusively breastfeeding the twins and that alone is going to be a challenge, I really want to establish a comfortable routine with them before anyone besides my helpful mother and sisters come....
... so when do I "Allow" the inlaws to come? I think I have at least arranged for them to stay elsewhere when they visit...i dont have a spare bedroom so having people on couches is not OK. but... what do you all think????
