  • Would you want your MIL to be present at your baby's birth? Why or why not?

  • No...absolutely not. MIL and I do not get along all that well and I just wouldn't feel comfortable her being in there. When I had Alex, my mom, dad and Wyatt were in the room with me..With Logan my mom was in the operating room. MIL just puts me at my wits end and I couldn't put up with her during a situation like that

  • God I am so stupid.....
    I thought you said buy MIL a gift
    anyhow....If my MIL were there and I was in labor I don't think I'd care! My Mom and hubby have always been there. My bro was there w/the first. and My Sister was when I had Lilli.

  • I really love my MIL. I get along with her very well. I wouldn't have minded if she was present for the birth of her granddaughter. My mom was there. Unfortunately she was in Colorado visiting my SIL when Charlotte was born.

  • My MIL is wonderful as well. She's 78 yrs old and had 5 kids so I'm sure she would be great. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be possible because 1) she lives in KY and is afraid to fly and 2) if I have my MIL, then I would have to have my MOTHER and there's no way I want my mother in there with me. She would drive me nuts!
