With DS the only people who knew he was here were our parents and siblings... They were also the only visitors we had while in hospital.
Once we were home I allowed very close friends and family, everyone else had to wait until I was ready to visit them.
I had a rough birth with DS and a hard time with him as a newborn and the thought of people coming over while I was an emotional wreck was horrible so I just waited until I was ready and my mum was free to come visiting with me
This time around I'm hoping for things to be a bit smoother... But I once again won't be telling anyone once bubs is here (I actually don't even have a proper EDD) so I'll let everyone know as I'm ready again!
I don't care if people get offended! If they love me enough they'll understand...
