This is a bit of a spinoff from the last thread, about visitors rules.
I am due to have our 2nd in a month or so and have booked in for a Csection due to issues from my last pregnancy. I will be going under general as well.
My OBGYN advised that it should happen early in the morning depending on emergencies, other labours etc but can't guarantee it.
We have let the date slip to a few people so it is no longer a secret. I want to tell my MIL that I don't want visitors until at least the next day meaning my In-laws and friends because I know how horrible you feel after a general and a c section plus I want my son and my husband to be the first ones to meet the baby and for us to have some family time with the new baby before anyone else gets to meet them.
My mum or one of my sisters will probably have my son on the day and I really don't mind if they come to the hospital straight away because I know if they come up it will more about making sure we are ok -rather than having a chance to gossip and taking photos to send out to everyone. (Bit of background - my mother in law announced my pregnancy to my husbands family before my husband had a chance to). She is a gossip queen.
Plus my family has helped out so much during this pregnancy and offered me so much support. I am lucky to hear from my inlaws once every few weeks.
Am I being unreasonable? and how should I tell them?
