sorry gals, just had to vent. I feel like I could lose it at any moment. Somehow I am keeping sane. I am so jealous of everyone else's stories.
I hope you start to feel better, and people start giving you a break!
That is the way I felt with my last PG. The ladies and DH's work made him put the due date on the work calendar as if it was set in stone. They just didn't seem to get that I was not scheduling an induction or a c-section and that I didn't know the exact time or date that my baby would be born. Luckily, no body has bugged me too bad about this time. I guess that is one advantage to everyone in my family being so bogged down with their own lives that I might as well not exist. I can't figure out which is worse, being bugged too much or not enough. Crap. I completely agree that a good scream is in order!
Maybe we'll look back one day and laugh...??? Ya think? Well, maybe not. lol
I always ask DH when he looks tired if he'd like to change places and before I can even get it out, he says very firmly..."NO."
Of course, we would all love to have the baby when it is most convenient for ourselves and our families. It just doesn't always work out that way and its annoying when you put this weird last minute pressure on a pg lady who is already feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of birth.
Again, I just retreat into my cocoon...the world can go on without me...
I came to a realization today. If it's just me and the baby when she's ready, I'm okay with that. She will come when she comes and we will be okay without anyone else. I've done this twice before, am a strong independent woman and if people want to be around and supportive then they will be and if not, well, I can do it.
Hugs to all around, glad to hear other folks are having a tough time too, well, not glad, but it makes me feel less alone anyway.........
...And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.
Ugh... seriously, who would have thought that we have to deal with this crap when we are facing possibly most challenging and life changing event of our lives?
