Getting sick of people...

What did you say to everyone when you were close to delivering when asked (constantly), "Is the baby here yet?!"

I'm getting so tired of this. I was due yesterday & I'm being very patient, I know it could be two more weeks. I hope not, but I know it could be. I'm uncomfortable & I want to see my daughter & everyone reminding me that I'm STILL pregnant is getting me close to choking someone...

  • I went to walmart and got the iron on transferrs that you can make yourself and made up shirts that said, "nope not yet but you'll know when it happens" or "say one thing about it and I'm gonna choke someone"

    Otherwise just smile and ask "What, you can't the difference between pregnancy and fatness"

  • People aren't saying it to annoy only have a couple more days, so make the best of it.

  • You can have your DH respond to others, come up with a silly response, or change your message on the phone to say:
    "Baby isn't here yet. I need to have a quiet and calm environment to let the baby come out. So I won't be answering the phone for a while, and possibly not returning messages for a bit, either. The amount of inquires has become overwhelming, so we'll let you know when baby is here! Thanks all!"

  • I like the first idea. I would tell my mother (she has a huge mouth) that I am tired of people asking me.

  • To prevent that i never gave people my estimated due date, i told them the baby will come in late march or early april! No phone calls or anything.
