Does anyone else feel instantly irritated when people start making predictions? Of course I don't mind the guesses themselves, but it drives me mad when people push them as factual. Especially when they're wrong, and then start gradually changing the prediction until they're right on something. From right at the beginning, it was "IT'S DEFINITELY TWINS" Gradually going on to "Ok, well if it's not twins then it's DEFINITELY A GIRL". Repeatedly. I also had a feeling it was a girl, but really didn't want to dwell on the thought in case I ended up favouring a girl and feeling disappointed if it wasn't. Especially OH, who was hoping for a girl - every time someone would say to him it's "definitely" a girl just from a glance at the bump, I'd be foaming at the mouth it would have broke my heart if he got his hopes up. Turns out it is a girl. "See, I told you!" Yeah you also told me it was definitely twins. It's flip a coin for the gender, Mystic Meg Now I'm constantly hearing "oh she'll definitely be early!" "you won't go full term" etc etc To the point that I'm now half expecting her to be early, and it drives me mad and makes the wait feel longer. I have no genuine reason to expect her to be early. And I know full well that as soon as "early" passes and I hit full time, rather than "oh, guess i was wrong then", it'll just casually become "she'll definitely be here tomorrow" "day after" next" week" going on and on until it happens. Followed by "see I told you!" I had it all in my first pregnancy with my son as well. Everyone was absolutely sure he'll definitely turn up by the end of the week. Oh, maybe tuesday then? If not then definitely wednesday. All the way until he was 2 weeks late and I ended up getting induced The sad thing is, I know people mean well, but I have to physically force myself not to glare at them when they say it I've tried to politely point out that I'm actually trying NOT to make predictions and would rather just ride it out, especially as DS was 2 weeks late. Only for them to go "oh no it won't be like that, you'll definitely be early this time" It almost makes me hope she's 2 weeks late just so they can't go "I told you so!" and think they're psychic, even though they changed their predictions a good 40 times before being right SO.. Does it bother other people or am I alone in this? Had any predictions?
