leilarobs2:  Haha. When I was younger I used to freak the hell out if I heard sirens. If I was within 5 miles of my house and heard them, I would call my grandpa to make sure he was okay…but when I was 11 I also watched my mom get hauled away in an ambulance 4 times within a month before she finally passed away so I know that’s where it came from. 

Op, I’ve lost both of my parents so I don’t have any advice, but this would drive me insane! The lady that’s like my mom is older and she doesn’t text me constantly, but still gets on my nerves sometimes. She’ll text me good morning and goodnight, which doesn’t bother me, but sometimes she just text stupid stuff that I don’t really care about, like your voice example.and her emojis…oh my god! Like I said, it doesn’t happen constantly so I just write her back to appease her, but I’d go crazy if she was like your mom!

Try tellng her that all this anxiety, guilt tripping, never ending texting is really stressing you out. And being pregrant and always stressed out is BAD FOR THE BABY!!!

Hi! I feel for you. Mine can be quite over baring it’s so annoying! just remember she really does love you…. It’s hard to say “back off” without offending some types of mothers. 

all I can say is just carry on taking your time to reply. dont always reply straight away and im not saying you do … But stop telling her so much! Also you may find you need some help especially in the early days with new baby … You might not …but TRUST me … On broken sleep looking after a newborn 24/7 is TOUGH and you may need all the help you can get…. It’s hard but dont cut your ties 😉 good luck and congrats on the soon to be new baby 🙂 xx
