MCB, that's a shame you don't get along with your sister's partner. My oldest brother and I haven't spoken to each other in over a year. He doesn't talk to any of the family. It's sad, but I'm hoping one day he'll get himself together and want contact again.
I am adamant that I just want hubby and I in the delivery room. It was just the two of us when we made her, and I think it's a special moment for both of us. We will let my mum know when we're going to hospital, then phones will be away until after the birth. I also don't want people waiting at the hospital for her to be born. When she's born, I want to be able to have bonding time, just the three of us, without feeling guilty about people waiting.
Bond, I hope you've grown next week when you get checked.
