"your still pregnant?!" ahh

Warning: hormonal rant. I am so over the ten thousand phone calls a day "well, did you have the baby?" And running into people daily and seeing their face and asking if I'm still pregnant. No, I just strapped on this big belly to walk around in because it's been fun the past 9 months. I know people are just being nice but I am soooooo over being pregnant at this point and being over due that when she finally comes out I will shout it from the roof top so please stop asking! And on top of asking it's the same repetitive advice over and over again on how to get her out. There is nothing that actually works, it's all old wives tails and she will come when she is ready. And they seriously think you have never herd or tried any of these things before. Sorry rant over. But I can't be the only one who is annoyed. Lol

I'm not overdue I'm 37 weeks and 3 days but I know what you mean. I'm already getting impatient and have been super anxious I don't need everybody else saying well do this or do that. I've tried walking sex and spicy foods. I refuse to do castor oil. I know about all the self induction tricks but they don't work for everybody. It drives me crazy having people be like omg he needs to hurry up and get here... When I'm the one that's carrying him and ready to get back to my old self and have my baby boy here. So anyways I know how u feel and I'm sure being overdue makes it that much worse

Haha I know how you feel, I get that everyone is excited and can't wait to meet my baby either. I love that there are so many people who care... But after a few calls and texts asking if I'm in labor yet, I'm with you! Especially as I'm 39 weeks 4 days, I haven't even reached my due date yet!

That's why i won't tell people the due date. I always say end of Jan, beginning of Feb. Due dates are just estimates.

Omg i so know how you feel my due date is today which is also my brothers birthday. I have gotten a call everyday from my mom saying i hope your holding him in till friday. Then my grandpas bday was yesterday so i would get a call from the grandparents asking if i was waiting to have him on my grandpas bday. I finally told them he wants his own bday and was waiting for everyone elses to pass. Then my sister i love her but she is way to excited about him and keeps tell me he needs to get here already. No **** im the one that is in pain everyday and tired from being pregnant i dont need her telling me he needs to be here and shes done this since i was 37 weeks. And then my niece and husbands lil sister that ask everyday when is he going to be here I told them i have no clue he comes when hes ready and they still ask everyday. its driving me crazy i told my lil sister i want to crawl in a hole have the baby and not tell anyone about it.

The comments people make. In the beginning of my pregnancy a coworker of mine constantly asked if I was feeling ok because I looked pale. I am naturally pale!! As it turned hot out I began to swell really bad and everyone at work talked about my "poor swollen feet" so much I was ready to make a fb page for them. And now we are o to the cant you turn up the oven and have that baby already! Now that I am off work and only a few weeks to go I enjoy hiding out in the comfort of my own home and avoiding most phone calls, sleeping is a hood excuse for not answering :) Cause trust me when this baby comes grandparents will make sure everyone knows! Lol

My favorite "Oh you still have quite a way to go,looks like your ready to pop." Thanks for stating that I look like a whale!  Geesh people so inconsiderate to such comments towards a pregnant woman. 4 weeks left and I'm not opposed to him arriving early, because doctors keep stating he's a big baby, but yet they don't even give an estimate as to what a big baby is. So nervous excited irritated and happy all together.  Such a bipolar time for me right now.

Yep my due date is Wednesday and people will not stop checking in on me. Friends and family are sweet but I am over the constant texts and calls. Everyone is way too nosey right now, when he is here everyone will be told! I'm extremely tired at this point in my pregnancy and I have more important things than to constantly update people.

The only ones that matter to me are my 8 & 9 year old they get first dibs on their little sister! Sheesh!

I remember that annoying part in the last few weeks. This time I keep telling everyone I am due in Feb even though I am due in January.  That way I will have less tine with that. It's funny because I never give a date and people just assume around my other son's birthday.  :)
