I know this sounds horrible, but I'm 11 weeks pregnant and my family won't quit pestering me. We relocated 1200 miles away a few months ago and then found out I'm pregnant. My grandma comments on literally *everything* on Facebook and my mom periodically texts me about weather hazards (we now live in snow) and to say she's worried about me and misses me. I know this is natural stuff and they just care about me but it's overwhelming to the point where it's stressing me out. I don't want to hurt their feelings but I don't know how to tactfully tell them I just want to be left alone right now. I work 7 days a week, try to take care of the pets and the house plus I have to deal with being sick and tired due to being pregnant, not to mention sleeping about 10 hours a day at this point. It's really a lot of stress and they are just adding to it.
To make matters worse, my grandma keeps overstepping my boundaries. Not only is she commenting and asking questions on every post I make on FB (I'm the type that feels the need to respond when someone addresses me), but she's butting into conversations on my wall and posting on my wall and messaging me after I announced I am trying to take a break from the constant "on" feeling I sometimes get from FB (which was code for me not wanting anymore unsolicited advice, questions, extraneous comments, etc...from anybody, not just her). She is not getting it. I went to my mom for advice but all she did was defend my grandma and then proceed to insult me for my political views (she called me prejudiced just based on the fact that I don't agree with Obama's policies, I was stunned...then she said I don't seem like a nice or reasonable person, again, I was shocked).
Anyway, I don't know what to do and I guess I partly wanted to vent on here because I feel like nobody is understanding how I feel!
