MrJesus and I are having our second sonogram next week and his mother wants to be included. We’ve called the hospital, and they told us as long as we don’t bring a horde of people, one extra person in the radiology room shouldn’t be a problem.
So why am I slightly skeeved out by this? I like my MIL…we don’t exactly luuuuurve each other, but we get along ok I suppose, considering we have little in common other than a great love for her son and grandchild-to-be.
Is this common, for parents or in-laws to WANT to be in on the sonograms? This is the sonogram where (hopefully) we find out whether BabyJesus will be a BabyBoy or a BabyGirl. I guess she wants to be there because she is so excited about her very first grandchild.
I must admit I am a tad skeeved out about this. Not enough to say "No you can’t come’ but just enough to feel kind of wierd about it. I’ve never heard of anyone having their parents or inlaws in the room with them during such a thing.
