Mom is kinda hit or miss. Sometimes she's really supportive about stuff I wouldn't expect her to be into, sometimes she kinda steps back and says it's my business, and sometimes she thinks it's her business. The worst is that she really thinks that she's always stepping back but she's not! I might be able to convince her, or she might decide this is worth being stubborn over.
The thing that really annoyed me, is she was saying she didn't think it was a good idea because of "all the problems in the family." So I asked her to tell me about these problems. If it's so important, I want to know regardless of where I'm birthing, and I should probably tell the midwife, right? Then she got all wishy-washy. "Well, it's just so many things. You know, there's just a lot, I can't think right now…" So I asked her to email me when she can think of it, "well, it's just not a good idea…."
You can imagine how convinced I became.
