DH is a high school teacher and head football coach. He loves his job as well as his football boys and so do I. We invite them over pretty frequently, I cook for them and I geniunely care for them since we spend so much time with them. Yesterday when DH was taking a few kids home from practice, we were on the phone talking. One of the highschool football boys who recently had a baby said to DH “Something must be wrong with one of you because she should have been pregnant by now. Obviously, yall aren’t doing something right.” Ok……I was hurt. The nerve of him, right? DH and I were both speechless. I really think he was out of place. This is our first month of actively TTC and to my knowledge, we are both just fine. We just got married, give us time to have a baby. I was just so shocked that he let this come out of his mouth, and although I was/am offended, I have to let it go. Anyone ever experience anything similar?

@MARIE901: So he was “bragging” about being able to get someone pregnant in high school?

@Natalieh86: Basically. His comment just really hit me the wrong way. Not only was it insensitive, but also very rude.

I honestly wouldn’t give a second thought to what a teenage boy had to say to me.

I would have responded with something along the lines of “no, we’re just doing things the responsible way… you know, like having steady jobs, getting *married*, and THEN have the baby”

Ok, granted, it was a shitty comment. But we’re talking a high school kid who is probably still blissfully unaware of how difficult raising a baby is. He’s probably in “heh-heh, I have super sperm” mentality.

@BabyBoecksMom: Right! I told him that we just got married, give us time to enjoy ourselves as husband and wife first.
@KatyElle: I realized that too, that’s why although I was offended, I’m not going to hold a grudge about it.

@KatyElle: Ditto, hes still a boy and obviously doesn’t realize how hurtful his comment would be. He probably thought he was being funny. Granted I hope that his kid will grow up to know better than that.

@KatyElle: Hah. So true.
Dear OP, try not to let it bother you. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you and your husband. You are still brand-newlyweds! And I’m sure that your efforts TTC will go great! No rush at all. 🙂

Boys are dumb, especially teenagers! Sticks and stones, right? 🙂

Yeah that sucks and teenage boys are dumb.
I’m glad you are letting it go cause considering the source, it wasn’t meant probably as a true insult.

That is a hurtful thing to say, but I think that it shouldnt be taken to heart. He is a hs boy. They say and do things they shouldnt. Honestly he was probably just giving your husband a hard time, not trying to be hurtful to you.

@KatyElle: ditto. that was an inensitive and rude comment, but highschool boys are pretty low on the food chain…immature and clueless. don’t take it to heart.

@PitBulLover: haha, right!
@Crisark: I know 🙁 Over it!
@organizedbride11: It probably was to get at my husband. They joke around with him a lot.
@harmonyeee: I’m not. I’m over it!
