    Default Excuse me?

    I really want to know when all my "friends" started being so interested in me having a baby? EVERYONE has asked me when I'm being induced and they all throw in there that they'll "come to the hospital". I don't WANT them at the hospital. My mom and dad and Tim's mom are the only ones I've specifically said I want there and I only want my mom and DH in the delivery room.... and all these people are coming out of the wood work like... OMG I'm so totally coming to see you! ...um...great...? And it's irritating because I KNOW most of them want to visit at the hospital because I live "so far away."

    Whatever.

    I'd straight up tell em.. Thanks but no thanks. I will enjoy my family while in the hospital and that's about it.

    TRUE friends will be there for you in the weeks after she's born.. helping with whatever you might need help with! Cooking.. cleaning.. etc. And it won't matter how far you live - the distance between your house and there's should not define the distance between the bond of two friends. How disappointing.

    Adriana - the bad thing is, one of my "friends" lives like... 4 miles down the road!! I haven't seen her (except when I did her taxes for her) since her boyfriend moved in with her.

    I agree with Adrianna. Even for me family sometimes shows their true colors. Like my one SIL has not been to see us or called or anything since we have been home. But then there are some friends bringing me food and whatever I need

    My mom just called and told me she's coming Thursday and she asked me when I wanted her to leave. I was like - I don't want you to leave! I think (if everything goes right) I'll be discharged Saturday. That leaves Sunday with DH (and my mom) and then Monday I think DH is going to go back to work AND he just informed me since he'll be missing class this Thursday, he's going to go in on Monday and catch up on whatever he missed because the next class is Tuesday. So, I'll have one day with help (Sunday) and then everyone leaves me?? That's not exactly what I had planned.
    So.. I think my moms going to stay around, at least for a couple days. I love my mommy

    I'm sorry about the friends...some people just suck. I agree with Adriana, I would just tell them you are limiting visitors to family but after you are home for a few days and feeling a little better they are more then welcome to come visit.
    Yay for your mom though! She will be a ton of help i'm sure.

    Yeah I have straight up told my friends I don't want any visitors besides family. Even with family, I don't want them there the whole time.

    I heart your mom, too! That's wonderful that she's coming! And respecting how much you do or don't want her there!! If I recall, she lives like 2 hours away, right? What a mom!!!

    So so SO very excited for you and DH. You'll be a family of 3 so very soon!
