TOO PERSONAL?

When do you draw your line of personal information?
Let's talk about it in terms of giving birth.
What do you, as mom's prefer to have out there to all your fellow friends and family members? And, what don't you want out there?

With the way things are today, it's so simple to get an update, unlike years ago when even the Daddies to be weren't even allowed in the room. Plus, THEY DIDN'T HAVE EPIDURALS!

What do you draw the line at?
Does it vary based on the relationship you have with that person?

I'm honestly curious to know your opinions on this. Consider it sort of a Crusty quest. Why?

That doesn't matter, what matters is what you think. What I want to know is, if you are a Mommy, what did you want mentioned, done, shown, spoken of, and what didn't you. If you're on the receiving end, say a sister or a sister in law, a cousin, what information did they give you on the birth of a new baby, and were you satisfied?

Yes, I do believe that what we want out there isn't necessarily the issue here, it's WHO we tell the "what" to, that matters.
It boils down to the relationship that you have with that person.

So tell me, when does a delivery go from update to TOO MUCH INFORMATION?

I tend to lean on the side of less is more. If someone really wants to know the full details, they should ask. otherwise I just like the cursory high level details and I'm satisfied...
