Would NEVER happen here!! I would definitely be having DH tell him no. Good luck, I don't understand why they wouldn't just stay with your MIL to begin with.

You are absolutely not being selfish! Especially when your MIL has a place for them to stay. That is just too much stress, to be very pregnant and trying to entertain house guests...they should understand that :(

You are NOT a selfish brat. Could you talk to your MIL and maybe she could be the one to.suggest he stay with her?

DH needs to tell them to stay with her or get a room. If anyone objects, stand firm. Good luck because I suspect you're going to need it.

You are totally not selfish! I would tell them no for sure, my poor mother is already aware she might be banned to my sisters house after the baby comes just because I am not a huge fan of company. I am a bit of a neat freak and my family is not as much. I tend to get stressed out because my 2 parents add enough stuff for 20 people, or at least I feel like they do.

If you need an excuse just tell them you do not want the chance of getting sick. Having people in your house like that makes you way more prone to catching something. Speaking as someone who is STILL battling a cold I would avoid being around lots of people for any reason to stop this cold from taking over.
Good luck!

Girl, Just say NO! They sound like way too much work and you don't need them messing with all your baby stuff a month before you are due!

I didn't even need to read all of the story, because the first thing I saw was you basically don't want company or anyone staying. So people staying is a no no. This isn't the time to be a nice person, think about urself first!

I agree! No way! You don't need the stress of overnight visitors for that long. Your mother in law should be the one to have them stay.

"I know I'm being a selfish brat..."

I don't think it's selfish at all to tell them -- nicely, of course -- to stay elsewhere.
