Stop demanding an exact due date! - Page 2

post #21 of 23

I am SOOOO here! 

 

I just say he'll come sometime in April since I'm "due" mid month.  I don't get why everyone is obsessed with the actual date either, like it's a coutdown or something.

I love this thread!  Haha, when I was pregnant, everyone kept asking my due date and then telling me when I would have the baby.  I got a thousand calls on the actual due date, as if it was absolute, and the baby was surely born already.  He was a week and a half 'late' and people kept saying when are you going to have that baby?  Are you going to get induced?  Is something wrong?  AAAAAAAAAH!!!  Jeez.  If I have another one I'm not telling ANYONE the due date, which is such a silly thing to give a pregnant woman anyway, since really everyone is just guessing, and rarely accurate.  Teehee.

I completely agree! I am due April 10th, and I feel like everyone has been asking my my EXACT due date, when that is not a predictor as to when the baby will arrive. This is especially frustrating because I have a small build, so my stomach looks larger than it would on a woman with an average build...immediately people start asking me how many babies I am having and if I am having twins. Twins would be wonderful, yet at 9 months pregnant, I dont feel very open to discussing how very large my stomach is. An estimate  of my due date should be enough.
