I think you've got a classic case of pregnancy self-centredness, how many weeks was she? I was a bit miffed to have both mine early tbh, hate to think there was someone out there getting pissed off because I'd beaten them to it...it would be slightly more understandable if you were massively overdue but you haven't even reached your due date yet.
If her baby was in special care then I obviously wouldn't be writing this. she was 38 weeks and has a perfectly healthy baby! was looking more for other ladies near their due dates to moan with not some idiot who has chip on their shoulder.
I remember feeling like this - a friend of the family was due after me but her DS was born early and my DD was almost two weeks late. I remember being happy that she had a boy because I was convinced that not only was she probably all smug about having had the baby first but that she would 'steal' the girl's name we'd chosen (This is someone I hardly ever see so it wouldn't matter if she did anyway!)
I would put it down to tiredness and being a tiny bit irritational at this stage
Have someone from work due 2 days after me, we work in a school and there are bets on between parents and staff to see who gets to introduce their new baby first as it will be the exciting one with the next being 'oh! another baby' (It had better be me!!!) We also have a poll on guessing the baby name but have not been allowed to see the guesses, apparently lots of people wrote the same names for both of us to up their chance of winning. It is all in good humour though (I still want to win!)
Ooo yes, I definitely know where you are coming from, I would be annoyed too Anyone over 35 weeks pregnant reserves the right to be irrational and unreasonable, particularly when it comes to still being pregnant while others around you are popping them out all over the place. I know three other people who are due in the two weeks either side of my due date (I'm 38 weeks) and I just know I'm going to be the last sodding one to give birth. Not helped by DC1 being 2 weeks late, so it's not unlikely that I've still got another bloody month of this!
I know exactly how you feel. A total of THREE people in my NCT class have given birth before me despite being due later. Am green with envy and so sick of being pregnant (am 41 weeks). I honestly feel as though I will be pregnant forever, even though DP continually reminds me that this is not medically possible
when i was preg with DD and [art of an antenatal group on here...i was due before a big handful of girls and literally i was the last in the group to have the baby!! i eventually popped 11 days late and i was a big sobbing mess for the whole 11 days!!
i know the feeling and i agree...you have reserved the right to be a bit hormonal and irrational!
I'm due for a c section on a friends due date and I feel guilty for this exact reason. Everyday lasts a fortnight in those last few weeks so if others have the indecency to pop before you it makes it all worse Take heart in that it won't reeeally be forever, and what was that really irritating thing people said when I was 6 days over with dc 2... Oh yes... Enjoy the sleep now while you can... As IF you're getting any sleep.
