I guess this is a bit of am aibu but very related to my pregnancy. A bit of background: for various reasons I don't have a very close relationship with my DM. She has never been a particularly 'maternal' type but particularly since my sister and I have become adults she has not been very involved in our lives. Not a problem in itself but makes her current behaviour confusing.
I am due to give birth next week and since I have been on maternity leave (last 3 weeks) she has been in constant touch with me via phone calls and text messages. I am finding it very frustrating if I'm honest as I am uncomfortable and fed up without feeling like a 'watched pot'. I also feel there is an element of her testing me to check I will get in touch when I go into labour and this is how she will know if I don't tell her as she won't get a reply to her constant messages.
Does anyone else find the constant checks from their family annoying? I'm really tempted to tell her to back off and I will be on touch once I have given birth!
Um yes just said to my sister if one more person ask me if I have any signs/twinges I'm gonna scream .. Every time I call Dm/MIL/ friends they all think I'm in labour .. I'm due next Wednesday, but both my 2 previous dc came in 39th week ... Going to stop calling people and answering the phone ... If I go overdue I think I will go mad from the constant watching!!
Just say you'll. be the first to know when it happens .. My mum has just asked me for 3rd time today If I have any pains.. Told her it's really annoying and to stop asking me .. She said well u had the other 2 at this time .. I said well this one might come in 2 weeks! Lol ..
