MIL called tonight, and she's on my hit list now. They plan to come visit us this weekend - and dh doesn't have the balls to stand up to his mommy and tell her to wait. I do NOT want company. I do NOT want any family around when I am anywhere close to labor. WHY can't they figure this out by now?!! I wish I could run away somewhere and have my baby alone. *sigh*
Good luck on whatever you decide!

That being said, it sucks that your family is coming this weekend. I told my mom not to come (she was going to be here last weekend) because i couldn't stand the idea of someone getting into my 'labor space' or having to play hostess in the middle of either being brand new as a mom or in labor or 9 mos pg and exhausted and cranky.
Talked to my mom this morning, and she's got me pretty much talked into sending dd off. Mom wants me to send both kids, but I just don't think I can part with ds. He's too little and never spent a night without me. If it was just a day or 2, that would be fine, but a couple weeks is too much. He's no trouble anyway. He sleeps real good - goes to bed by 7:30pm, doesn't wake to early, and takes a decent nap. DH still isn't gung ho on packing dd off - he says he will miss her, but I think he will probably go for it...
For some reason I am just completely terrified of being alone here with two of them!
