That would be seriously annoying!!! I’m crossing my fingers that you don’t have to wait 2 more weeks though!

Haha there’s just something about babies that makes people lose their tact.  I know I would just about die asking someone about their “lady parts!”

I hated that part and people rubbing my belly. Something about random people wanting to touch a baby bump is so strange to me!

Here’s my other thing about babies these days…  When I have one I have decided I’m not calling anyone until the baby is out!  Because everyone these days seems to be posting on facebook about how far along their friends/family are.  My husband’s family in particular really likes to overshare.  I don’t need the whole world knowing the current dialation of my cervix THANKYOUVERYMUCH.

Oh gosh. I mean I’ve only asked my friend who is long distance b/c she is really bad about communicating so she really could have had the baby and forgot to share the news. But I would be really annoyed if people touched my belly or asked personal questions, that is so violating!

I told everyone they were on a “don’t call us, we’ll call you” basis.  Then I got lonely!  Seriously, people were afraid to call!  Good luck during this special time.  I have such great memories around the birth of our daughter!

I’ve seen how friends have been bugged by their friends and acquaintances on Facebook, so I refuse to be one of those  who bothers the expectant mom, who has to be the most impatient of all those people, anyway! 

I’m hoping people will be less intrusive when the time comes around for my baby to be born (a couple months from now).  They probably won’t be, though.

I remember that feeling very well! I had a talk with the grandparents a few weeks before our baby was born. I basically laid out the rules that we would call and let them know what was going on and they could decide if they wanted to come sit in the waiting room or they could come up after the baby was born. I was really surprised to find out that my mom was assuming that she was going to be in the delivery room…That was sooo not happening! 

Its important to make sure that you and your family are on the same page about what to expect on the big day. As for everyone else…they should really just butt out but some people are so clueless!
