  • Be happy that they're THERE, even if they are a pain in your @ss. My grandmother and father are dead so be HAPPY you have these people in your life during this important time. I'll never be able to hear their wanted or unwanted advice. Be grateful for what you have around you because alot of people don't have that. I wish my father was here for me (especially now that I am ttc now and I was married last year.) Its been 6 years and feels like yesterday since he passed. Life is short, so take the advice with a grain of salt.

  • I completly understand what you mean... my mother in law is the worst...everyday its "do you feel ok?", "did you take your vitamins and iron?", and my personal favorite..."well your not going to be doing (fill in the blank with whatever the topic is) with my grandbaby".... I just want to scream!! I'm an adult that is perfectly capable of taking care of myself a husband and my baby I just wish people would back off....but honestly how do you nicely tell someone to back off when you know they mean well?? good luck with deaing with it...try not to kill anyone b4 your baby gets here lol

  • Every other question I get is "how are you?" I usually just say "great, how are you" and the subject is dropped. I'm 23 wks. and healthy and active so I don't look sickly or fragile or anything, which helps. As far as the annoying advice, I only ever got shit from a (chidless) friend who thought it was her business to interrogate me about my plans for caring for my child and I have dumped her. Now that my baby is coming, I do not need any draining people around. If these annoying people are your friends, consider whether you need them around. Trust me, with so much to worry about you only need to be around supportive people. Dumping her was the best thing I've ever done!

  • I see that it's your family doing the annoying advice giving. if I were you, as hard as this is, I'd tell them now how much it bothers me, otherwise they're not going to stop.

    i know how it is to lose some one that you spent most of your time with and was always there before i found out that i was pregnant my little brother past away and it hurts me because not only am i only 17 but he isnt going to be there for this.
