With my first, I didn't allow anyone to come to the hospital. Luckily, I had only 2 people ask, and no family in state (except my mom, who I asked to come help with labor). My memories of the hospital are lots of topless time, bathroom trips, soreness, happy crying, meds, trying to sleep whenever I could, etc. NOT things I associate with visitors!

I plan to stick to this rule if I have a 2nd baby, but now that my ILs are in town and I'll be missing my LO1, I know it we will have some sort of a visit. But I probably will want it to be limited!

Just curious if any of you forbade visitors? What about Baby #2, if you had one?
