I think I am being paranoid here, but I just can't help it....darn media...please tell me what you would do (or would think is ideal) in this situation.
Bubbas born at 35weeks, and are only 2.5kg, but doing well. MIL is planning on coming to visit in 2weeks (day after their due date) for the weekend. She is coming from Melbourne....and it freaks me out with all the swine flu there. I know in my head that it is very unlikely that she will bring it with her, and that we have every chance of them catching it locally, or catching some other flu or something anyway. BUT part of me wants to tell her to postphone her trip until it all settles down. she is the type NOT to listen to any warnings, and I don't trust her to tell us if she has been unwell or around anyone who is unwell. That is my biggest fear I think....other family/friends have stayed away because they were unwell (even just with a cold) but she wouldn't worry about it AT ALL. I don't like her much, so wonder how much of it is me wanting her to stay away v real fear of catching anything. I feel really selfish for even thinking about asking her to put the trip off - but we went through soooo much in my nightmare pregnancy, I have the overwhelming urge to protect theses bubbas with all my might. Should I say anything to her?? (or get DH to say anything?)
