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...

We had told everyone prior that we would be having a get together when dd was a few weeks old and until then, we appreciated no visitors. Obviously our parents came to visit before that time but thankfully everyone else was really respectful. We did 1 weekend for extended family, another weekend for friends - and said pop by when it suits you between x & y time
We only had my brother visit us whilst we were still in the birth centre. We weren't there long enough but even so, the only reason I told him to come by was because his office was only 200m up the road
