So I have recently been thinking about who I could have with me, aside from the bf of course, when we have the baby around March 13/13. 95% chance I am having a c-section, therefore it will be planned in advance. We have lived out west now for a year and 3 months. I don't have any close friends here, nor do I intend to make any since we plan to move back to Ontario in a few years anyway. My bf's mom is coming out over March Break, whenever that is in Ontario to help out and just sort of be there for me, since my own mother passed away 9 years ago. My dad also plans to fly out as well. But I read somewhere you should try and have a girlfriend with you as well. My bf's mom (practically my in-law, since weve lived together since 2010) and I aren't too close. We get along just fine, really well in fact, but she isn't someone Iam all "buddy buddy" with, if that makes sense. Plus she isn't near my age. Any thoughts? is it wise to have a female friend, who has had a baby be there for support, or is an in-law and my dad enough? I wish I had someone my age out here I was close to, to share this with but I don't. Even back in Ontario none of my closer friends have had babies, and my family and I just aren't close anymore, we've drifted apart.
