They're not the ones that your DH should be keeping happy, it's you. I would be saying that if they won't stay at your place, you'll have to find other options as you just don't think it's safe.
I've seen really scary videos on YouTube of people letting their toddlers do stupid things to dogs. Owners need to not only show strong leadership to their dog/s but also be able to read the dogs body language.

I really don't want to bother friends of mine, they have their own babies and my closest one is currently suffering PND. So no. There's no one else.

Bugger. I would personally be going with a good sitter then.
Maybe get DH to tell his parents you've changed your mind and if they defo don't want to come to you you're getting a sitter. Might help spur them into action???
I would also be telling DH to make sure his parents know it's a family decision and he backs you. But that's just me.

I am sure your friends wouldn't see it as a bother.

OP you're definitely not overreacting. My concern is for you. If your in laws are 50min away that's almost a 2hr round trip for your husband. Not only would the risk be that he would miss it, but you might end up having baby at home. I would put your foot down and tell your in laws that you don't give a stuff what they think. This is your son, your baby and your experience. They need to come to you. I know you've had loads of issues with them so I'm actually surprised you're trusting them to look after your DS. You just need to be comfortable with the arrangements!

You're right, they need to watch our son here or not at all.
I do know they are not happy to drive at night time (MIL doesn't drive, FIL is 75) so if i go into labor in the middle of the night we wont have their help at all regardless.

Not long now for you and bub will be here! So exciting
How have things been with the inlaws? Are they still holding the mortgage thing over your head? After everything that you have been through with them, after the way your FIL was with your DS, I thought you were cutting them off? I am surprised you are leaving your DS with them to be honest... Add to the past the current dog fiasco then I would rather bother a friend than trust the inlaws.
