Aloha Friday: Birth

My Question:

When you gave birth, who was there?

When I gave birth to my son (firstborn), one of my sisters-in-law came to spend the week with us (dh and me). However baby was a week late and SIL could only extend her ticket by two days. I was induced and went into labor and she got to be there and held him even before I did :) However she had to leave just mere hours after he was born. 
After giving birth, I got sick in the hospital for two weeks. They still do not know what was wrong with me.
With my daughter, it was my husband, my mother-in-law and my brother-in-law. My MIL came to stay with us for the birth and help out. She got to be in the room (OMGM-Ohmygirlymouse)!!! My BIL (Hopefully he wasn't in there!!!) was passing through from Fla to go back home and stopped to visit and got caught up in this precious time. 
It's been quite interesting these births. I will like to see what it will be like with my next baby. 
Have a wonderful weekend! Aloha!

  1. I don't have children yet! :)

    Come and visit my big birthday giveaway (see left sidebar).

  2. We don't have kids yet but when we'll do i want my husband and my best friend to be there when i give birth:)

    *my Aloha Friday's up too:)

  3. We adopted... I was at my girlfriends birthing, It was a c-section, but being a nurse I was okay with it.

  4. My hubby and mother were the only ones in the room with me when it was time to push. I just was not comfortable enough with my MIL being there and my father had no interest.

  5. Hubby and me :)

    Have a great Friday!

  6. 2 c sections....with Lizzie my husband was there then my Mother in law, father in law, mom and dad all showed up within 20 minutes of the surgery.

    With David, my midwife was there, a nursing student, my husband, Lizzie, mother in law, children's pastor, mom and little sister were all there.

    WOW, when I type it seems like a bunch of people but I wasn't overwhelmed at all :)

  7. in the room... Just the hubby
    in the waiting room: brother, mom, dad, biological father and stepmom... we asked for friends not to come (being that my husband was flown in from training for deployment, we did not want anyone to take the time away.. )

  8. Outside of the doctor and nurses it was just my husband for both kids.

  9. I only wanted my husband, I just wasn't comfortable having anyone else there, not even mom!

  10. As much as I wish there didn't have to be a lot of people in there...I was 38 1/2 weeks pregnant with identical twins. As a result of having twins, they have to have two teams of doctors and nurses in the room (one set for each baby) and because it was a C-section there were more too.
    Then there were interns that had not ever seen twins be born before and because we are in such a small town, they had to stand in also not knowing when the next set would be. Needless to say, I still, 6 yrs later, walk down the street and have people tell me they were in the delivery room with my twins...AWKWARD!!!

  11. Just my husband was in the room with my first. My parents were waiting in the hallway outside. With my second, my daughter was waiting in the nurse's station with the nurses because it was so quick and unexpected.
