Set the ground rules as soon as you can. Sit down with your husband and make sure you are both on the same page with regard to your pregnancy and what you wish for when it comes to the arrival of your baby. There's nothing worse than having to backtrack or argue about what one person said to a family member while the other one strongly disagrees.
Finding out the gender of your baby
Baby shower planning
Tip: Set up a baby registry and include items that you want or need for the nursery. This way you receive items picked by your husband and yourself but your family feels like they are contributing to the baby's room.
Labor and delivery
First few weeks with baby
You may not see eye-to-eye with your husband on certain topics regarding your in-laws and that's okay. Maybe your husband doesn't quite understand why you want your mother in the delivery room, but his mother has to wait in the waiting room. Talk through these situations and try to come up with a solution that makes you both happy or requires that you both meet somewhere in the middle.
