My MIL lives 8 hours away and wants to come stay for a bit right after delivery (and be there during if she can make it in time!) At first I was ok with this but the closer I'm getting the more I'd really rather not have her here right away. My mom will be here to stay for a couple weeks, but she's not really a "guest" and she will be helping with cleaning, cooking, etc and is generally really helpful to have around. It's not that MIL is high maintenance, but she's definitely not helpful, she's a "guest" for sure. Also she doesn't drive and we live far from anything so anytime she may need something we'd have to drive her, or get it for her. I feel bad though because my OH seems to want her here, he gets along well with his mom. However, he'll be working so I'll be the one stuck at home all day with them. Thanksgiving weekend is only a month after my due date and I was thinking of maybe asking her to wait until then to visit? Is that too long to ask her to wait to see her grandchild? What do other people feel about house guests right after delivery? Are you having visitors or keeping people away for a bit?
