"I’ve had a pretty rough pregnancy, and my brother in law is a medical student, so he’s taken quite a lot of interest in my pregnancy and future delivery."We’ve always gotten on well. He’s 24. I’ve known my husbands family since we were children so we’ve pretty much grown up together. headtopics.com
"A few days ago, my husband told me that my brother in law had expressed an interest in being there whilst I gave birth, mainly due to it being beneficial from an educational standpoint to see a natural multiples birth, which is what I’m planning for.
"I said absolutely not, there is no way in hell I am allowing that. I’m not even overly keen on allowing my husband to watch me go through that, let alone his brother."He said it’d be a good experience for him and his degree and I said that as much as I supported him, my experience of having a pleasant birth was my priority.
"He got defensive and said he should be allowed to have a support person too, which I suppose I do understand, but I really just feel uncomfortable about it all."One person commented: "I am so so so angry for you. I don’t want to overstep, but if you were my IRL bestie I’d be asking if this is really the type of person you want to spend the rest of your life with."
Another joked: "Tell him that if he is willing to get naked, lay on the dining room table, grab his ankles, and let your dad stare at his a****le for an hour then you will THINK about letting his brother in the delivery room."Birth is hard enough, don’t let him bully you into this." headtopics.com

The sudden scrutiny of Boris Johnson has one explanation: he’s served his purpose | Owen JonesThe sudden scrutiny of his shambolic behaviour has one explanation: the prime minister has served his purpose, says Guardian columnist Owen Jones Do you think you could ask Mr Jones to exit his echo chamber, even for 5 minutes, and actually read other views as he appears to have crossed the line into insanity and I’m worried he may never be sane again. Bets the inevitable spending squeeze comes off the back of “we need to repair the economy form all of what Johnson spent” OwenJones84 Most of us realised this, the date that Brexit finally made it through parliament - but Covid rather scared off any replacements. Better that thousands of people died and Johnson (rightly) got the blame - so they left him in post. Now the knives are out. Typical Tory style.
