Is there a polite way to say "stop telling me good news about your baby?"

I guess there isn't. I know i'm only being told because they're excited and that's fantastic I just... it feels like i'm being slapped. Bleurgh. Awkward position because i want them to be happy and excited but i don't want to hear about it and that makes me feel mean (which i don't like feeling).

Sorry. I'm being lame and mopey and self-obsessed again. Will stop that.

You took the words out of my mouth. We're probably talking about different people, but this is how I feel about most of the mummies I know...

I'm genuinely pleased about my sister being pregnant again, and there're a few friends who i would be chuffed to bits if they were, but other people seem to rub it in just by being who they are :(

Tell me about it, I want to cry everytime my mum talks about my nephews and nieces and it isn't helped how both my sister-in-laws are pregnant again and mum keeps saying they are having a race to see who can give her the most grandkids. Makes me feel like poop that I can't provide any. 40% of my friends have now had kids too, its depressing so I know how you feel.
