My mom would bug me about having a baby before I was even married. My brother has been married for a while so I would tell her to talk to him. My Mother-In-Law is too nice to put that kind of pressure on us. Now that I am pregnant, they’re both crazy excited.

I think my parents will be cool, because my sister already has provided them with 4 grandkids. I don’t know about Future Mother-In-Law, though – methinks I detect a glimmer of baby fever in her eye.

My parents are not feeling the pressure at all. My parents are still “young” (54) so they dont need to have grandchildren any time soon. DHs parents were bugging us for a while but then my SIL had a baby so the pressure will be off for a while!

I don’t think my parents are yet.  My mom’s really good friend has 3 grandkids so if they want to do a kid outing like the zoo then my mom will borrow kids from the children pastor.  Win-win all around. 

At some point she would like her own but she wants to retire and be the babysitter but she’s not able to retire yet so I think she hopes my sister and I wait just a little bit longer.  But hubby and I won’t start trying for at least 2-3 more years.

Oh god. Yes. At the wedding, my mom and aunt mentioned babies 2 or 3 times, and at the end of the night when I said we were unsure if we wanted kids, my dad informed me that I better have one or else he’ll “rip one out of me”… uhmm…

But again, we’re not even sure we want kids, and I don’t want to feel guilted into it in order to make my parents grandparents, because guess what? At the end of the day, the kids is ours and it will be our responsibility to take care of it, not the grandparents. And we’re just not sure if we want that responsibility!

I’m not even married yet but this is definitely already starting to come up.

Future Mother-In-Law gets her tea leaves read, and recently the reader told her that she would become a grandmother in the near future. She mentioned this to Fiance and I with a little smile on her face the next time we saw her. My response? “Oh, really? Who’d FI’s brother knock up?”

Future Father-In-Law laughed himself silly. Apparently he said the exact same thing to Future Mother-In-Law when she told him!

My parents are young (50) and they still have grandbaby fever!  My mom can’t wait to be a grandma and I think she secretly wishes that Darling Husband and I weren’t planning to wait 3.5 to start TTC.

Trugem – they are already hassling you??? That’s incredible!

We haven’t felt any pressure from either parents yet. They want us to just enjoy being married first.

However, our grandparents might start talking grandbabies soon. But honestly, it is none of their business – like Rainbow said the two people who are solely responsible for raising the children would be me and DH; not our parents and certainly not our grandparents.

Oh yes…atleast my mom is ready.  Thankfully, my sister got married 10 months after I did and got pregnant 3 months after that.  So the pressure is off…for now…lol

Oh hell yes! When we went on our honeymoon, my dad blurted out in front of everyone that he hopes that this was a grandbaby making honeymoon. UGHH!
