My mom has also gotten the idea in her head that I have to "decide on whether to get a c section" ASAP and has been calling other family members and getting them all worried. I think that my mom means well, but she loves drama and is willing to spin some wild stories in order to get something she wants (attention, sympathy, access to me while I am giving birth).
I'm currently just trying to cocoon myself with happy and relaxing thoughts!
I think ignoring other's needs during these last days and during our labors is the best thing to do. But it is hard. I have slipped and let it be known to my sister that I may not call anyone until after the baby is born. I don't think she plans to be at the hospital, but my grandma does and she is the biggest pain. She literally convinced the nurses to let her and my aunt stay when my niece was born. And who wants to cause a scene when your sister is about to give birth kwim? So I told my sister I don't even want gma at the hospital because it going to stress me out to have to kick her out of my room as I don't want to hurt her feelings, so go back around the drawing board of it is easier just to not let anyone know. And I love my grandma, it is just that I don't think her presence will help my birthing process and if there is one time to be selfish, it is while you are giving birth imo.
As for being pregnant forever, yes I feel that way, I so hope I have dd before 41 weeks as that is when NST start and I will be getting my membranes stripped, would love to to already have a baby in my arms rather than have to do the extra tests and measures. But we'll just have to wait and see. Pregnancy isn't really bothering me, I can last a couple more weeks okay i suppose, lol but I know she will eventually be evicted if she doesn't come out on her own, just hoping she gets to choose her birthday, that is all.
