A pregnant mum has shared her story on online explaining why she won’t tell hubby when baby number two is booked in for delivery via c-section.
The mum shares on Mumsnet, “For background, [I] went into spontaneous labour with DS1 (dear son 1) and MIL (mother-in-law) (despite multiple previous conversations) ignored my request to stay away from hospital and visit when home.”
“She continually interrupted my labour for updates from DH and he didn’t have the backbone to tell her to go home,” she says.
The expectant mother has confessed she isn’t telling her husband the exact due date of baby number two to avoid her mother-in-law finding out about it.
She says she can’t trust her husband not to “blab” to his mum and she wants to avoid a repeat of what happened when she gave birth to their first child.
She says she plans to tell her husband about the birth the day of the c-section and understands this will make it difficult for him to get time off work.
“I plan to tell him the morning I go into hospital – he will just have to cancel work for two weeks (just as if I went into natural labour) and take his phone off him too – to avoid MIL being told, and give me the peace, respect and joy that I want (and feel I deserve) for what may be my last birth experience.”
Most followers on the forum feel she is actually making a mistake by not informing her husband of the due date.
