    my MIL keeps on saying, "i just KNOW he'll be born on the 19th, i just KNOW it" because that is her birthday. it's getting old... i'm not even due until the 5th of january! i try to ignore it when she says that, but earlier she was texting me and i kinda blew it off and changed the subject and she brought it up again. then on facebook i had written something about how i wish he'd get here soon and she's like "oh well you will be meeting him on saturday i'm just sure of it" and i'm like... SHUT UP! i don't want to have him on her birthday! i want him to have his OWN special birthday that nobody else in the family has... is that so wrong?

    it pisses me off that she keeps saying that she just KNOWS it. i'm like nooo, you don't know that. i don't know that. baby doesn't even know that! and if i do go into labor on the 19th i swear i will squeeze it shut so tight he can't get out until after midnight.

    ughhhhha;dfjal;fdjaf annoyingggggg

    Ahhh how annoying can MILs be!!

    Mine keeps going on about how she's certain he will be born on the 23rd (her youngests birthday) and how she's certain it'll be then.

    I wanna punch the woman! I'm going in for an induction on Sunday, so he'd better be here before Wednesday! I think she's cruel wanting me to be in labour for so long!!

    Just wait until u get past Saturday and she'll have to shut up then!

    So frustrating isn't it? I've got people telling me there's no-way i'm going to be overdue, they'd put a bet on it that she'll come early and i'm like 'no, she'll come when she's bloody ready' :hissy:
     
  7. lol, ive only beed told a bunch of dates i cant have him on :/ it does get annoying after a while though...

    haha yes the day after would really make her mad! if i have him on the 25th (brother and aunt's birthday) or jan 1 (cousin's birthday) i should make a huge production of it haha.

    the way she is acting makes me not even want her at the hospital when he's born. she's such a know-it-all... i mean she just KNEW he was a boy after all (lucky guess, hell she had a 50% chance of being right how hard can it be lol) but i don't want her there. because she'll come in and be like "ohhh he looks just like (one of her kids) when he was born!" or "oh he has my eyes" or something... i'll be like no he has HIS OWN eyes he looks like MY SON not yours lol

    Oh how annoying!!!
    I can sympathise... my MIL "just KNOWS" that the clothes I have bought won't fit because it's going to be a "big [{DH surname}] baby". Well I think it's going to be a petite [{my maiden name}] baby.

    And she is also sure that I'm going to go into labour on Christmas Day.
    And she is "praying" for a girl.

    Nice.

    Medical research shows that the baby virtually ALWAYS favours the mother's build and not the father's family... This is evolution - since a baby needs to be born for both the baby and mother to survive (he may grow into a whopper later, but at birth he should be petite like you so that he is easily born). So my money is on a petite baby like you.... :winkwink:

    So don't have her there. Tell the L&D nurses that you only want certain people there and that the rest can see you when you're comfy and settled at home.

    LOL - my due date was dec 23rd yet my mil insisted (constantly) that my LO's bday would be dec 15.... only reason is that is what her psychic told her!!! Thing is that same psychic told her we were going to have a boy. That was obviously wrong according to every single scan we had! When we found out that we would probably be induced early cause my bp she thought I would hold out til the 15th.. im like no... the dr will decide. duh! I then said as long as she isnt born on my bday(dec 5). MIL didnt like hearing that at all- my dh was born on HER bday - & of course she thinks its the best thing in the world that the 2 of hem share bdays. Well my baby was born on Dec 2- so her pyschic was way off! :rofl:

    Just try to ignore her - VERY hard I know!!

    oh how i wish i could get away with this... but his whole family is going to be driving 80 miles to come see us at the hospital, and he'd get really upset with me if i told them that they couldn't come in. i could always blame it on crazy pregnancy hormones... hehehe :shrug:
