I was smiling, so someone said I had a pregnancy glow.
I posted on FB about buying ketchup and ice cream and people were like, oh, I know what that means…. (by the way, it’s pickles and ice cream, not ketchup!)
I can’t wear an empire waisted shirt without comments.
Is anyone else surrounded by people who won’t stop making jokes about pregnancy? So annoying….

I feel like it comes with marriage! The next thing people have to talk about are your babies which may or may not be something in your cards..for a long time or ever!

Not sure if you have ever seen this comedy. It’s hilarious and touches on this in one of the episodes! Seriously worth the watch if you just need to take a break and try to find some humour in it all!
Ever since my family found out my uterus has decided to go on strike (I have PCOS, have the CF gene, the fragile x gene, and a tipped uterus) They are just the opposite. A family friend asked at a gathering if I ever planned on having children with SO (because they thought he would make an amazing father) and my mother wisked her away whispering, oh BLANK, lovesweetlove is going to grow a baby in her heart instead of her uterus. (She has been trying to be supportive and read that quote on an adoption site. haha.) I love my mother but sometimes. . . hahah.

We’ve been married 2 years in June and it still happens all the time. My SIL asks every time we see eachother and I just wanna be like honey, even if I were, you wouldn’t be the first to know!
I just started a new job in December and my closest coworker has been making comments since about 2 months in. I thought that was a bit nuts! I had the flu…maybe I was pregnant? Today I wanted to take off early but I knew if I said I wasn’t feeling well, she’d ask if I was pregnant.
It gets SO OLD. I have so many witty replies, but don’t have the balls to use them. 🙁

wait, ARE you pregnant, or are people just joking that you are?
But i agree. I made a comment to my sister about not fitting in my jeans anymore (since graduating college a year ago I’m not as active) and she of course made a pregnancy joke. Because of course, marriage means we want to immediately have babies, right?

Yup, I get that all the time. Which is actually pretty hard because it just reminds me that I’m NOT, which I’d like to be…. 🙁 Either way…yeah.

Once you get married I feel that it’s par for the course…I’ll turn 29 about three days after we marry and I fully expect to get lots of this…

@MrsNerdy: No, I’m not. I let one person at work know we were TTC (she’s kind of nosy, lol) and now she’s watching my every move…

- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
People have no filter sometimes.
Most of my family know we’ve been struggling with TTC for some time now, and at a party recently I had my first bottle of wine in FOREVER, so I was pleasantly happy. THAT’S when an aunty decided to come and rub me on the belly and ask me when I was due. I was like, lady, do you not SEE the wine glass in my hand right now? Really?

I agree with everyone. It seems like once you say I do. They automatically assume next step is having a baby. When I got married way back. That didn’t happen, but this is my second marriage and we got married in Feb and it’s almost a constant thing. Asking us when are we going to have a little one. I think Darling Husband finally got fed up and said never.lol To get people off our case. It does get a little annoying.

I find that so rude. People dont know other peoples situation. What if you have been trying and it hasnt worked? Or maybe you cant ever have children? Its such a sensitive topic and people should avoid personal questions.

I just tell people “not babymaking now, we just like to practice!” *wiggly eyebrows*

My Future Father-In-Law already wants to know when we are going to have kids. He’s been asking almost every time I’ve seen him since we got engaged. We aren’t even getting married for another 7 months!!
