Unfortunately it's not an option this time because we have a three year old and MIL is the only person we know who can watch her while I'm in the hospital. I'm already having a hard time dealing with the idea of being seperated from my dd, we've never spent the night apart, I want to at least know she's with a family member and I want her to be there asap to see the baby once I'm in recovery.
Thanks for reassuring me to listen to my instincts mamas! I think I'll let her know in advance so I don't have to deal with explaining it after the baby is born.
When I first read the title to your post I thought to myself "when I'm a grandma I will want to hold the baby within minutes of it being born too." I was thinking about how for woman it's such an ancient thing and that our blood rushes to be near it.
Then I realized you actually meant WITHIN MINUTES of giving birth.
What the hell.
I guess I expect people to be reasonable....when I hear within minutes I think that means when the mom is done, the dad is done, and she's invited lol.
Is she mad?
