Is it normal for people to be asking you “when are the babies coming?” two weeks into your marriage? It’s driving me absolutely insane! I thought most people wait at least a year before TTC and here they are, yammering about babies and I haven’t even been married for a month!!
It’s almost as if they think that marriage suddenly makes me want 1000 babies!

Umm people are already asking me when the babies are coming. I think people assume that others only get married to reproduce!!

Our whole lives are dictated by perceived stages, so its all there is to talk about & expect.

I cannot stand this! It’s all coming from FI’s family and all friends. My family does not do this. It is extremely annoying. Is there nothing else to talk about? Not only that but I have some insecurities about my age and if I will even be able to conceive so it makes me uncomfortable.

@redheadem: oh God, and your wedding is still a good 3 months out!
@Eva Peron: I can understand the baby questions, I just can’t understand the timing!
@urchin: I don’t want children. You can imagine … *headache*
@Natalieh86: *hides email*
@NJmeetsBX: The interesting thing about my case is that our families aren’t asking. Friends are.

Yes, people started asking us right away. And, I have gained a few pounds and had a few people think I was pregnant and ask me about it. Awesome.

Isn’t that weird?? I still don’t understand why people think that marriage = instant baby. It’s not like your ovaries don’t work until you get married! lol! We’ve been married a bit over a year and we got it A LOT at first from family. I wanted to smack everyone! Mind yer bizness! Luckily most of my friends couldn’t care less when I have one :p

Hah, yes! Worst of all is DH’s best friend who REALLY wants a baby. He’s already got a projected due date based off a honeymoon baby. Not happening!
Families are all doing the same. I’d take that over “How’s married life?” any day. I’m still not sure how to answer that one.

@redheadem: Yes! Someone I know actually got offended when I told them that people do still get married for love when she asked if I was pregnant. Its crazy.

@thursdayschild: We lived together before marriage so when people ask me that I’m just like “Uh…the same as it was before?” and that kind of ends the conversation. I don’t get what was magically supposed to change after the wedding.

I get it from both family and friends already (and have been for a while now!). I’m only 27! My fiance is only 25! Chill out, we’ll have aby when we’re ready!
So yeah, I agree. REALLY annoying!

@thursdayschild @paigers91: lol we’ve lived together for a year now, and people ask me “how’s married life?” and I say “same as before”. They always seem so disappointed. I rather “how’s married life” over “When are the babbies coming?!?!?!?!?!?!?!”
