issues with my family..

My due date is in 15 days and my mother and sister and constantly asking me if they can be in the delivery room when I go to have my baby girl and my boyfriend is wanting his step mom in there as well. Nut honestly I'm to the point where i just want me and my boyfriend in there because my family has really got on my nerves by all the time texting and calling me asking me if I'm having contractions and stuff like that and its getting on my nerves I know they care and all but they need to give me a break every once in awhile. They don't ever come visit me and I know once I have my baby they are going to want to be at my house all the time and I don't want that. My mother already thinks she's staying with me the first week I get out of the hospital and I don't want that either but how can I tell my family how I feel without them being mad at me??

Just explain to them that the delivery is a personal experience that you want to share with your boyfriend - ONLY! If that doesn't sit well, then try explaining that you will be in an emotional state and will not be able to handle a bunch of people there, even if they are close to you. If neither of those things resonate with them, remind them of the secuity the hospital has. Lol  

They might be angry but they will get over it. This is not their moment, its yours! Remember that! If them being there isn't going to help de-stress that moment and keep you calm, then they have no business being there. It's not like they're popping a kid out!
