It's annoying isn't it? I had it for about 4 weeks and it drove me batty!!
In the end I just stopped answering the phone, texts and emails. I know people are just excited, but when you get 6-7 calls etc per day, it's a bit much. I think everyone thinks they are the only one calling, but they're not. Haven't had it this time touch wood!
Hugs to the poster who's Mum stole their moment too. I'd never forgive mine if she did that.

In the last few weeks of pregnancy to save my sanity i did the following
1. go into your account setting on fb and diaable others from being able to post on your wall, they will still private msg you but ignore them. If they ask if you got it or not just say you havent been on in a while
2. turn the ringer in your home phone to silent so people have to call your mobile, that way you only answer the call if it says a particular person you want to speak to. Just delete or ignore sms
3. And we considered if these things didnt work, buying a cheap pre paid mobile and only hubby having the number and just turing off mobile and home phone.
People got annoyed i wasnt telling them what was going on in the last weeks if pregnancy and lots of people got annoyed we didnt tell them i was in labour, but you do what you need to do at this time to keep your sanity and screw them if they complain.

i just disabled posting on my wall and wrote a post saying i did that and why.
cant believe people were mad at you for not telling them you were in labour.
i wont be telling anyone im in labour. only hubby and i need to know. its a private and intimate thing that only we should share as a familly... thats what i believe anyway.

I've got a Niece who's due date was last week, and I am so excited to meet her, but I'm being so very careful NOT to become one of those annoying people. As much as I wish I could follow her around like a little puppy until she is born, it's not about me, it's about them and their new little family, and I need to respect that they need this time to themselves to prepare and rest up for the big day. It sure is hard not to message though! But I haven't, not once
Hope you're little one is here soon and that you're family gives you a bit of a break. last thing you need is a bunch of people in your face right now. *hugs*

My mum would call every few days, even with bub #4, asking if I'd had bub. She stopped after I said 'yes had it last week and didn't tell you'. I think that made her realise how ridiculous it was to ask.

Same thing happened to me and it gave me the irrates reaaal bad!! I know everyone was just excited, but when you hear the same thing from about 30 ppl, it gets kinda annoying. I said to myself that next pregnancy, I will be giving everyone a later due date. I will be telling ppl that the bubs will be due about 2-3 weeks after the actual due date.
