Being overdue wouldn't be so hard if people would stop asking about her. I know they're trying to be polite but I'm about to hand out free slaps to the first 50 people at work who say "still here?" as if I could POSSIBLY be anywhere else when I'm literally standing in front of them.

That's all.

Also, it would be nice if my sister stopped calling. And my mom. I'm a horrible grouchasaurus rex right now.

I think tomorrow is going to be my last day at work.

I am sorry. People are anxious to meet your little one. I wish that you and I gave birth on the same day. Now you are the only one with our due date left to deliver.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I felt the same way at the end. I just wanted to be left alone and not constantly reminded that I was overdue. It helped not being at work.

It's just a bad case of the irrational hormones winning out over the rational brain. I need to find a way to deal with it. It's stupid that I'm letting the concerns of people who I otherwise really like get to me.

I'm with you too!! I'm probably the most relaxed about it out of everyone. I guess technically I'm not "overdue", but today is my due date. I had a membrane sweep today and they are checking to see if I can be induced this week because I'm at 4cm and 0 station and I need to make sure my dad is off work to babysit my DD. My mom won't leave my side, and I love her to death, but she's even talking about spending the night in case things start up tonight. She makes me more wound up!! I know it's just because she cares though. We won't be pregnant forever so I'm trying to enjoy the last few days as this will be it for my DH and I!!

Thank you Cavewoman for my beautiful siggy!

Tomorrow is going to be my last day at work.

DH had work travel scheduled for next week so he kept asking me if I knew what I wanted to do about induction (my answer... I don't)... but he just told work that he'll be off after Friday regardless of when she shows up.

I'm a lot less stressed now.

Glad to hear you feel less stressed about it.

Seriously, people just don't think before they speak. I doubt the folks realize how annoying and potentially inflammatory those statements are. Just tell them you want a Christmas baby and Elsa is apparently cooperating

She will be here soon mama. So sorry folks are making that wait a little harder.
