  • I hear ya.... my answer was "No... but thanks for reminding me I'm not in labor yet... I was trying not to think about it." Said nicely of course. That usually stopped the questions. Good Luck... Hang in there Mama!! ;o)

  • I am 25 weeks pregnant with my 4th child and I hear "you haven't dropped that baby YET"?!  It's starting early this time around, lol.  I have heard everything similar with all of my pregnancies.  I'm with you on this one, it's irritating.

  • Put a message on your voice mail/answering machine that says no I did not go into labor yet..... if you actually wanted to talk about something else leave a message and I will get back to you.

    Or with the sex question..... say Yes you should have seen the position DH put me in last night First he......

    They might get the point =D

  • Along with the suggestion above, I would gently remind people that it is an ESTIMATED due date, not an expiration date! Baby will come when good and ready!
