Haha! Today's my due date and I've already had that, I'm getting bored of Running into people them looking at my bump and then looking disappointed that I'm still pregnant!

Its so frustrating. Two messages today from work. Two yesterday one being from work and 3 within 15mins from dm because I hadn't replied straight away (I was washing and dressing ds aged 2) and 2 or 3 nearly every day before that. Usually the same people.

Write out a template text.
'Still no. Will continue to be no until I tell you otherwise. Stop asking.'

I will be using and I really don't care if people think I'm rude. I've recommended it so many times now that my phone auto-completed it then smile

I know! I'm only 38+5 but I had to explicitly tell my mother and sister to stop saying 'When is this baby coming then?' - I don't know! I haven't got a fucking crystal ball! They've been asking everyday since I hit 37 weeks. I think that because my DC1 came early that this one will too. Grrr!

Yes I know what you mean . I am 38 wks .
I am waiting at school gates now when I pick my son up instead of going into the playground . Otherwise I get pestered ! OOh are you sure its not twins ! Ooh not long now among the million of other annoying comments !
The visitors and phone calls have started checking up on me all the time , just to remind me how long I have left to go grrr ! x

I feel for you! I never told people what my exact due date is, always gave a range and I fear even then you will start texting towards the end of next week so I guess I will just be switching off my mobile ;)
My parents might be trickier as they start worrying if I dont pick up the phone at home and they start ringing the mobile. So I am getting them used to not picking up already.
Good luck with you little one!

Is it mean that iv just stopped replying to people (except my parents).

LinzAJ Tue 27-Jan-15 22:12:38

Nope I am just the same! I want to go into hiding to avoid people.

Its not like we are all hanging on to baby on purpose!!! I say this whilst having spent the last hour bouncing on a ball. blush

Iv already got a message from work this morning!

I think I'm going to crack this out when the time comes. I'm only 33+2 now but went to 41+6 with DS so I know how it feels!

He he pisghetti I've saved that. Cute. Cats are lucky because they can go off and have their kittens in private. My brother's cat had hers in the wardrobe and everyone's like "oh don't disturb them!". Shame it's not the same attitude to humans!!!

I had all that, twice over (both of mine were overdue), you get used to it...
