  • Quit answering the phone and take some time to yourself.

  • Easiest is to sever access to these folks: don't answer phone, email, FB, texts...
    ;- /

    Sometimes we tell moms to tell others a later due date/month.
    Or if it's too late for that, say hte doctor/midwife changed it (even at the end) and now baby isn't due for another 2 weeks.

    You and I know that a due date is just the mid-point within the average (estimated) due period (38-42 weeks). So expecting baby that day may be unreasonable. We are due for a month, not everyone else will get that.

    You might have your baby tonight or in a few weeks... Can be hard to explain that to some folks.

    Best wishes!

  • When people said stuff like that to me I would just say "do I look like I had my baby yet". I went a week over with my daughter and it was very frustrating when people kept asking. I felt miserable enough as it was without everyone bringing it up that I still hadnt had her yet. I just ignored everyone after awhile. I mean seriously if you had the baby they would know. You'd announce it or if they saw you they would know.
