As we get closer to the due date, I’m finding myself feeling more and more frustrated with these sorts of remarks… especially when they come from family members:
“Requesting” that I have the baby on a certain day so that it will be more convenient for them to travel to Omaha. Not possible, sorry.
Calling to ask if I’ve had the baby yet. Um, we will tell you before we tell anybody else, don’t worry!
Asking if we can schedule the bris at a certain time so that it will be more convenient for them to attend. No.
So not only am I overwhelmed with fear about giving birth and caring for a newborn, I now have to worry about other people’s schedules.
What comments annoyed you the most as you endured the final days of your pregnancy?
