Just keep repeating, “The baby will come when he’s ready.”

Ugh. Darling Husband and I were talking the other day about how technology makes things like having a baby or announcing an engagement SO much more complicated.

No advice from me except “losing” the phone 🙂 Good luck with your Mother-In-Law & keeping zen!

I’m so sorry!  I just blew up at lunch with Darling Husband about this very thing, and I’m not even past due.  I wish someone could tell everyone in the world that no pregnant woman ever wants to hear “is the baby coming today” or any variation of that.  I have pretty much resigned myself to not hanging out with anyone other than Darling Husband until our LO gets here – I may not be able to control my response to the next person who brings it up.  Feel free to vent away here and scream if you need to.  Totally normal!

They need a “things NOT to say to a pregnant woman course” because some people are so ignorant to what they should allow to flow out of their mouths.

People are just concerned and excited for you, and just want to check in. Just try to take it in the spirit it was meant.

Agreed, “lose” the phone. Hand it over to your husband and have him respond/delete all the comments.

MIL’s have a way of doing that, don’t they? I love mine, but some days she drives me out of my tree too and I’m not pregnant, or overdue pregnant. I can’t imagine how many ways she’ll drive me insane when that time comes. I like the advice that the others have given to turn off your phone and ignore it until you’re too blissed out on your new babes to care what she says haha.

JulesSchnooks i agree with you. OP People are just excited for you. They are not trying to be rude, or obnoxious. I really dont think its meant to hurt hurt you when they check in with you. Yes its annoying, but it is the birth of your baby that is really exciting and people just want to share a happy moment with you. Your Mother-In-Law just sounds like she trying to be supportive, and is just eager to meet her grandchild. Hope your LO comes soon enough for you.
