Hi I'm probably going to sound like a right weirdo, but here goes! I'm more worried about my Mil and Fil coming to see me and the baby at the hospital than I am about labour. I don't want them to touch my baby and the thought of them holding it makes my skin crawl. Obviously this is causing problems between myself and DH as I have expressed my opinion. The thought of people being around me after I've been through labour terrifies me. Why do I feel like this? I don't particularly like my In-Laws, but my DH is an only child so this child is really important to them. This also sounds really ungrateful, but everything my Mil has bought so far (apart from some sheets I said I'd pay for but she got them), is disgusting and cheap looking. I'm not a snob (got my baby's stuff new from Ebay), but she bought a shawl and towel from a market and they are horrible, really old fashioned with big satiny logos. DH said I only hate it because his mum bought it, but that's not true. I'd hate it if my mum bought it!
