Asking mom to come stay??

I'm a FTM and wondering how many of you ladies asked your mom to come stay for a week or 2 after birth to help out? My parents live 12 hours away, so day trips and being able to come over with a phone calls notice are out of the question. My mom hasn't offered to come for an extended stay, and has said she doesn't want to intrude/step on our toes as new parents, but I know she would agree to stay at the drop of a hat. My hubby works 12 hour days, and I'm worried I will regret not having the help/advice/reassurance of my mom around...but on the other hand don't want to regret inviting her and then not wanting the constant company. What is everyone's thoughts?
