(DH had told me just to not answer the phone, but that doesn't work with my mom. She'll just call back, every ten minutes or less, until I answer )

She called and was very apologetic for bothering me so much. I did feel bad for how badly she felt, and told her she wasn't the only one the message was intended for, when she totally was
So we'll see how well she does when it's getting close to the due date this time! All I've told her is "August"
This is what I'm doing next time. I'm only telling people, including DH (jk) the MONTH baby is due, not the day.... And if baby is due the beginning or end of a month, people will get TWO months, lol!

Well, she's obviously not getting your not so subtle comments so far, so I wouldn't keep up with the silly or snarky facebook comments. If she's a close friend, call her and tell her it's hurting your feelings. If you come with a sincere approach, she'll probably stop. If she's not a close friend, I'd just ignore it.
