@Firemansgirl:  I’m afraid it won’t stop!! I’ve been getting it since the day I got married. If I drive to any event I’m getting looks and winks! And I am TTC- at some point I will start to get very sensitive. People ask waaaay too personal questions!

My MIL announced AT the wedding reception that she wants grandbabies soon – we arent even sure we want to have any!

There have been numerous comments on FB – wishing, hoping, joking from friends/family and MIL that I am or might be knocked up.

SOOOOO Frustrating!

I’ve gotten baby comments throughout the engagement, mostly from non-family and coworkers.  Coworkers really surprise me.  I ride a motorcycle to work year-round to the office and I’m forty.

I’m not a fan of Lisa Lampinelli, but she has a great routine about people asking her about babies after she got married at 51.  I guess none of us are immune!

But seriously, I don’t know why the rush.  Babies and toddlers are so much neverending work, can’t a newlywed couple just enjoy and settle in for a while?

I have had so many people ask me and we’ve still got months until the wedding! People keep telling me to have a honeymoon baby and that if FI isn’t ready yet that accidents can happen?? Omg..like I would trick him into it??

I am in no hurry and neither is FI. We’d like to be married and enjoy that for a bit first. We will have kids if and when it feels like the right time for us…meaning when we know we really want them. It’s a HUGE commitment not something to do because babies are so cute or because someone wants to be a grandma sooner rather than later..lol. Sigh.
