Ever since I hit 37 weeks people have been telling me "Oh better get that baby out!" , "when are you going to get induced?", "what are you doing to make him come?"

And it's like HELLO, he is obviously not ready to come! Why do people think full term means developmentally ready? It's just frustrating because of course I want him to come, more than anyone else does! Yet people have been telling me for weeks that I need to "get him out of there".

Why? I am the only one who has to actually go through this pregnancy and deal with all of the symptoms that comes along with it, yet everyone else is so concerned and anxious that Ares needs to come out ASAP.

It's so annoying! I just want to say SHUT UP!! You don't think I want him to come??!!! I'm the one who's pregnant for Christ's sake. Ugh. I'm not going to induce my baby just because everyone else thinks it's time. They are CRAZY!

Okay, sorry just had to vent.

I feel you on everyone bothering you!! My dad actually sent me a text that said tic toc!!!!! I was furious. I actually am getting induced this Sunday night but for medical reasons (my baby has a lung disease and they can't see it via u/s anymore bc of her ribs and they need to get her out bc it could be growing and they think my pelvis is too small for her to fit).

No one wants to meet our babies more than us. Everyone needs to back off. I mean hello hormones too!!!!

And at 37 weeks people are talking induction???? Not even an option!!!!!

Oh I'm sorry about your little one's medical issue. At least you are being induced for a legitimate reason!I hope it all goes smoothly for you

And I know! People are idiots, talking induction at 37 weeks. Drives me bonkers!

I hear you! I am 40weeks plus2 days and you would think it's an elephant gestation or something - people keep telling me I must be miserable (no, actually I feel really good), that I need to hurry this baby along (uhm, nope she is on her own schedule and is doing great) and basically texting and emailing "any news" every half hour as if I somehow would forget to mention I had the baby - lol :-) One good thing - I now know all these things I would NEVER say to another pregnant Mom! :-)

You should tell them you plan to bake him until 5 years old to avoid that whole diaper business.

Just wait now that you are past your due date .

I get a minimum of 10 phone calls/texts/facebook messages daily now from people asking "Had that baby yet?" Like maybe I just forgot to mention it. It's frustrating, but most people mean well and just want to know that you and Ares are doing okay and don't know any other ways of asking.

Hang in there!
