Bit of a rant...
Sorry about the rant guys but I just needed it 😂.
So long story short I have quite a strained relationship with my Dad since I was 6 when my Mum and Dad split up.
But that's another story as to why.
Because of this I am incredibly close to my Mum she's my best friend. So I am having her and my Boyfriend in the room with me when I am giving birth and not telling ANYONE when I go into labour for the pure fact I don't want extra stress.
My Dad called me yesterday asking if he can come visit me in the Hospital the day after I give birth, despite me saying how me and my Boyfriend don't want any visitors within the first two weeks and everyone is understanding that. Apart from my Dad.
Its like it feels like he should have special treatment because he's my Dad/the Grandad and its his first Grandchild and I think he's annoyed my Mums going to be there with me and see the Baby before him.
It was just alot of 'me me me' not even thinking about how I'm gonna feel, what my mental state will be like, if everything goes to plan etc
He doesn't understand the fact that both myself and my Boyfriend want no visitors at the Hospital and want at least two weeks to ourselves and its seriously stressing me out but he just doesn't care.
Sorry for the rant
My in laws are the same. Until we recently had a break from them, we had continued problems with them undermining us with our 3 year old and now MIL thinks she can stop at our house for a week once baby is born. No chance! Doors will be locked and curtains closed until we've had some time as our new little family of 4. No special treatment for grandparents either! It's not their baby, not their decision! Xx
