Hospital and Belly pic!

I am thuroughly impressed with the hospital we chose, and its not JUST the location that impresses me ;-)  They are  all about keeping Mom and Dad with baby(ies) at all times.  They push not having a waiting room full of visitors, which gives ample time for the new family to bond and nurse after the birth.  With C-sec's the same policy holds true... Baby(ies) with mom and dad in recovery as long as everyone is healthy!  I feel relieved.

It is so important to me to have that time after the birth so we, as a family, can just be together.  C and I were talking yesterday after the tour and are really considering not having anyone at the hospital until after the birth.  I am torn, because part of me really wants my mom there.  I don't think we'll have a definitive answer until either it gets closer or until the day of.  If I am required to have a c-sec I might feel different.  Lots to think about and decide!

I will leave you with my updated belly.  Taken today at 26 weeks 4 days!

WOOHOO!!! So glad you love it!

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, too - the whole 'having people there just after the birth.' I sorta want my mom, but if I have her there, then Hubby's parents will want to be there, and several friends and other relatives will want to be there.... I'm leaning towards not telling anyone when I go into labor because I won't be able to stop them. Unless I have to have a C-section in which case, I guess I'll schedule their visit, too. LOL

Your belly is adorable. Thank you for answering my questions- I really appreciate hearing other peoples plans snd opinions.
I think that it's just going to be me and my hubby for the birth. And then family after- if I can keep them away :)

Neither of us have any family here- My mom will fly in and be here for the birth, then my hubby's mom once mine leaves so we won't be overwhelmed. Think we might regret not having family around to help out once we are at home and settled though! Love your belly pic:) The nursery color too!
