So my due date was Feb. 7th. My mom came 10 days before my due date because she was convinced that I would be early. She is leaving on Valentine's Day. Its been great having her around, I guess I had forgotten how much I missed her. Chances are, she will leave before I can give birth of be induced. It makes me so upset to think that my son won't have someone that he knows and takes comfort in to be there for him while I'm giving birth. I'm going to have to pay some random person to be in my house, taking care of my son. I feel very angry and disappointed. It also doesn't help that people keep making the comment ,"you're STILL pregnant?" I have all these intense emotions and none of them are positive. I wish I could just be happy about this situation. Sorry to blabber on..

Since your 40weeks, can you not ask to be induced? My ob will induce after 39weeks at request. Im sorry you are going through what your going through. I can imagine the frustration. I really hope baby decides to come out like now HUGS

I'm sorry you're feeling down. My parents were with me after I had dd1 but it doesn't look like they'll be making it this time around which makes me really sad. I understand your frustration. I hope your little one decides to make an appearance before your mom leaves.

I'm sorry I can totally relate to being overdue (I'm currently 40w6d) and hearing the comments about STILL being pregnant over and over again. I'm sorry that it looks like your mom might be gone before you deliver, it really stinks sometimes not having family close. When I had DD I lived 1000 miles from my family. I really hope you go into labor in the next day or two babe.

Thank you everyone! When I read your messages I immediately felt a little lift and a little peace that the situation is not unmanageable. I guess I just had high expectations. I should've known this whole birth thing would completely take me by surprise... as if pregnancy wasn't enough! Lol!

Hugs, I hope your little one comes before your mom leaves. My mom lives very far away also, and she cannot visit us at all. At least you are able to see your mom a little bit.

I hope your little one decides to come soon. I have been getting he ready to go comments too! Some can be fun and others a bit off.
