I have been following your story and cant't believe this horrible situation you are in.
As far as the hospital visits go, I agree with having a no visitors at all rule at the hospital. Then to ensure your family don't miss out, have them call or text DH when they arrive and he can meet them in the carpark and escort them in.
Good luck! I hope all goes smoothly for you and the birth and days following are as special as they should be.

Hun def dont send an email, they will for sure start everything again which is the last thing you need in your final weeks.
I wouldnt tell anyone except your parents and maybe very few friends that you can trust 100000% to not tell anyone while you are in hospital. They could quietly visit if you are in for a few days.
Then tell other people when you have been home for a few days.
We didnt tell anyone for 5hrs after csection that DD was here as we wanted time just the three of us - similar to you.

Are you sure they don't know who you are on here? I'd delete your due date just to be safe. Tell no one but your parents, friends (even close ones) can wait till you're home especially if it's only a couple of hours. I wouldn't update this thread until you're telling everyone else as well. Good luck with the birth!

@trustno1 - that is a great idea. I'll ask the midwives!!
@Goblin Queen - I'm certain none are on here They have no reason to be, and I don't tell anyone I am so they wouldn't have thought to stalk me. This is confirmed by the fact that if they were on here, and figured out who I am, they would have crucified me with stuff I've said so far!! But- totally deleting my signature right now!

If we do that though, will midwives enter the room while we are happily visiting and try kick them out because we said no visitors at all?? I'll ask them this week, maybe we can ask if I can use the call button to alert them to the unwanted visitors? Probably abusing the system a bit though :-/

Thanks everyone for your amazing suggestions- have a list of things to plan out with the midwives now

They would definitely remove unwanted visitors. The midwives told me on many occasions that if I was tired or getting overwhelmed by too many visitors just to make them aware and they will be the 'bad guys' and make the visitors leave.

I'm sure they would- but I'd worry they'd try make my family leave when they were visiting too
It just gives me more motivation to get my vbac and bail asap so we don't have to deal with any of this at all!
