So someone tell me why everyone insists in calling to 'remind' me to call them when baby is coming. Um, ya know, it really amazes me that some of these people are actually women who have had children. Maybe they just forgot that you have to go through labor.
And really, I don't want a crowded room wile I'm in labor! I know DP's stepmom is insisting on coming, and she will probably stop to pick up her SIL, because they seem to think everything is a family affair, and DP's mom is coming, which is fine with me (I know she will not interfere, she will just do her best to be supportive) but I am tired of people acting like they are just as involved in this as me. DP's stepmom tries to treat me like I'm her 16yo kid, and it's annoying because she isn't even old enough to be my mother. And, um, why do these people seem to forget that I've done this before? I mean come on! I don't need you to to tell me that I will be tired and in pain! I KNOW!!! And I know babies wake up a lot to feed, and no I don't want you to come stay to help with night-time bottle feedings! How many times do I have to tell you I will be breastfeeding!?!? Oh, breastfeeding is hard? Really? Cause I seemed to do JUST fine doing it with DS for a year!!!
Ok, I know maybe I'm being a BIT sensitive, and she is *I guess* trying to be helpful, but it's hard to look at it that way when I'm sitting at home with a headache and nausea and contractions that go nowhere, and I get a call form her asking what's going on, and saying "well, I'm just sitting here waiting for this baby ya know, so I thought I would call" HA! I got so irritated that I told her she would just have to deal with waiting cause no one is waiting as much as I am!!
Anyways, just wondering if I'm alone here. And needed to get it off my chest.
Rant over, thanks for listening dears!!!
