Ok maybe this is just me, but now that I'm within a week of my due date I'm getting nonstop texts from "friends" whom I never hear from normally. I know people are just excited to hear about the baby, but they seriously act like they're your best friend and it's totally normal for them to be contacting you out of the blue. Is this happening to anyone else and does it annoy anyone else like it does me? I'm sure it's going to get even worse after I pass my due date.

Fortunately it's only been actual friends and family for me.

That would probably bugggg me. I'm still 3 weeks away, so I probably won't get it yet, but I've stressed pretty heavily that we'll let people know when she's here, so don't bug me

Quite the opposite. Only the people who have actually cared the entire time have checked in. I would probably be annoyed, too. I'm not a big fan of the people who suddenly want to be in your business because you're pregnant.

I haven't had this happen, fortunately.

I have noticed that people I run into in person and some strangers really, really want to talk to me about pregnancy and babies. There is no other conversation.

Then others like my neighboors just asked for the first time if I was expecting? I was like holy cow yeah! In the next few weeks!!! I dont get it. At work everyone was like your gonna go any minute and here they are shocked Im 38 weeks!

I haven't had anyone check in. No family or friends. Actually finding it rather depressing, like no one cares that we are going to have this baby.

Haha I know the feeling!! I have so many former co-workers checking in on me. Oh goodie, I just got another text as I'm sitting here typing this. Maybe I should not let it bother me so much because I know people are just excited, but it's hard not to be annoyed when I'm already anxious enough for this pregnancy to be over already.

everyone including me is shocked im still pregnant... nobody odd has been checking in except mom & dad, MIL & FIL, and friends from work. EXCEPT today i posted on FB that i had a crappy nights sleep and a friend i hadn't talked to in forever asked if I had the twins yet, trust me you would know if i did.

i am keeping my induction date secret from FB because i dont want random well wishers to show up at the hospital.

That's exactly what it is! DH doesn't understand why it bothers me, but I know I wouldn't hear from any of these people if I weren't about to have a baby. Totally annoying.
