Oooh, I hated this! My mos called everyday, and normally, she really couldn't care less about what's going on in my everyday life. I remember telling my mom, "Do you think that I would go into labor without telling you?" And she would say "Well, I just want to make sure that you're doing okay..." I'm sure that she really did have my best interests in mind, but it was so obnoxious! The worst though, was when she started predicting when dd would be born- "Well, I have a feeling that it's going to be Wednesday, I just think that she will be born then." Everyday she would call and remind me that she thought the baby would be born on Wednesday. Even though I would have given anything to give birth at that point, I did not want to have the baby on Wednesday just to spite her. I ended up going almost a full week later.
My boss would call my cell phone everyday until I finally told him straight out that I was on maternity leave, and wasn't going to talk to anyone (including him) until the baby was born.
I also had a neighbor that became progressively more "friendly" the closer I got to my due date. She would call or come over everyday at odd hours, and it drove both of us crazy! She called a few minutes after dd was born and they put the call through to my room- I was so annoyed to pick up the phone a few minutes after my dd was born and find her on the phone!
Wow. I'm glad that I'm not the only one that has had this problem. Thanks for letting me vernt.
