Have you not had that baby yet?


How do you guys deal with this crap? Not even 9am this morning and I'd already had 5 messages along these lines. I'm one day before my due date and it's pretty full on already. I don't mind a text asking how I am but when its people who haven't bothered with me in the previous 9 months plus that are all of a sudden sending daily messages like "you still here" and "have you popped yet" it gets a bit annoying, actually it's giving me the absolute rage! The worst is people who have young children, don't they remember how hard it is in the last weeks? Why do people think this is acceptable??? Feel like snapping my phone in half! 😩

It drove me potty when I was overdue with ds, I'm sure people must forget most babies do not arrive on due date!

Oh gosh that drove me mad this time round - my boy was a week late and by the end I was ready to punch anyone who asked me! I got asked about 5 times each morning on the school run. I had to keep taking deep breaths and grinned through gritted teeth!

It's so annoying! I have been late by 8 and 7 days with my previous kids. I hate the words "any twinges?" with a passion. Texts I would ignore but it's harder with my mum and sister - they're the worst offenders!!

I HATE this!!! It's so annoying and it's like, "seriously, you think I'd have this baby and not tell you?!" It's so annoying. And I agree the worst is when you haven't heard from these people the previous 9 months and all of a sudden they must know if baby is here. I feel you and I'm dreading those texts!

Oh yes those "twinges" because that's exactly how every labour starts 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 On the plus side my plug is starting to come away this afternoon!

I just put a status on Facebook for my profile photo stating that I would not be accepting any such messages nor would I respond to them. It also said that I will announce the birth of my baby when I am ready and I would appreciate that people be considerate of this and not post on Facebook. Mind you, I don't tend to give out my due date to anyone but close family for that very reason.

I've been getting this for the past week... I'm 38 weeks!! I'm not even overdue and people are still saying 'not popped yet?' And things! It's really annoying because I'm having a terrible time with slow labour (it's been going on for 4weeks!!) I'm knackered!! I can't deal with the possibility of another 4 weeks of this!
