I'm not sure when to call people to say that I'm having my baby. What I mean is, when my water breaks, I'm in labor, and headed to the hospital, I don't want to call anyone, because I don't want anyone in the room while I'm sweating and crying and screaming or whatever during my labor (since I'm doing it naturally) I don't want people standing around staring at me like it's some fun show when this is my first baby, and I'm going to be terrified and wanting to concentrate on what's going on. I want to call them once the baby is already here and me and her dad have had time to see her first. What are ya'lls thoughts on that? Is that unfair? What did you do? I just know my family and know they will want to be barging in and holding the baby and arguing over her, and I just don't want any of that until I'm cleaned up, relaxed and have spent time with her.
