Man questions if mother in law should be allowed to come to wife's first ultrasound

A man has taken to Reddit for advice after his wife revealed to him that his mother in law wants to come to the ultrasound of the couple's first child.

"My mother-in-law is notorious for always having to be involved in everything." his post began.

"This is our first child, so I feel like the first ultrasound should be an intimate moment shared between myself and my wife. Somehow she has convinced my wife to allow her to be in the room as well. I’m not happy about this at all and now the wife is upset at me for being upset."

People offered up their thoughts on the matter, with opinion fairly split!

"If your wife wants her mother to be there, I think you should respect that choice. It's your first child, and maybe your wife wants support from her own mother, due to her own experience with childbirth." one person wrote.

"It's understandable that you would want this to be a more private moment, but at the end of the day this is your wife's medical appointment and she can have whoever the hell she wants in the room with her." another added.

Someone else suggested a compromise of bringing the mother in law along but having her wait in the waiting room.

The man ended up taking the mother in-law to the appointment, here's what he had to say about it...

"Just got home from the appointment with the wife and mother in law. I kind of opened up to her mom being there and everything was okay, until we heard the heartbeat. My wife got emotional and I was getting emotional, it was going to be a sweet moment. Then the mother in law started hitting my leg and wouldn’t stop, taking all my attention off of the beauty of the moment."

"Anywho, thanks for all the replies. We are blessed with a healthy baby so far. Due 3/27!" and that's the main thing isn't it!
