I am not due for several months yet, but the thought of having people abusing visiting priviliges is already eating at me. My Mil and husbands family mostly. My mom I know will be fine, if she comes over, it will be helpful company, bringing dinner, folding laundry etc. My dad, will be a pain, but easily dealt with, he will pick it up quickly, I think. Has anyone thought about, or already dealt with, having visitors just stopping by, unanounced, and unwelcomed, during labor or the first few days after baby is born? I am seeing it as more of a problem than with a hospital birth. And I am also worried about people not giving me ample recovery time, because I will be at home, it might just be assumed that I am up and around, ready to face anything. I thought about sending out a letter/email to everyone, but wonder what to say to be polite, but still not give in to my wishes. Any advice? Has anyone else dealt with this yet, how did you handle it?
