This has happened to me and we’re not even married yet!  Seriously, I had a friend inspect my drink at a party (maybe I looked fat that night, haha).  We’ve been getting hints and nudges for months!

i don;t know if  it just because i AM pregnant and so noticed these comments more.  But i did have at least one or two friends ask me before i told them when i was going to have kids….and it was their first time asking!

I got married two days ago and at a family party today was asked 3 times (possibly more, I stopped listening after awhile) when we’d be having a baby. So yes, once the rings on the finger everyone wants to know when the little one will be coming!

Our MOMS were talking about us getting pregnant at our reception but then again, I’m 36 and DH is 31.  I think it is pretty standard to ask people when they first get married.  Some just want to know when you are going to TTC.  I know when I play designated driver, I’m always asked if I’m pregnant!  Sheesh people!

When you’re dating someone seriously, it’s “When are you two getting married?”

Once you’re engaged, it’s “How are the wedding plans coming along?”

Once you’re married, it’s “When are you two having kids?”

Once you have one child, it’s “When are you two having another?”

Honestly, it’s not a sign of anything except for that people do not have an original way to make polite conversation. It’s one step up from asking you how the weather is, I suppose.

Every single time i see my dad, the first thing he asks is, So, anything new? Or, Any news? I’m like, Dad, don’t you think H would come with me to tell you? So yeah, in his case it is absolutely a sign of wishful thinking. Our other parents are more subtle, but yeah, everyone wants us knocked up and soon. (We’ve been married a year and a half and are in our early 30s, and are in the middle of a baby boom with our friends, so it comes up a lot!)

Coming from a really catholic family I got questions all the time…I think they expected us to be pregnant right away. I even think they got a little worried when we hit our 1 year and still weren’t pregnant.

@Miss Root:  In total agreement. Everyone just assumes it’s the next step.

It happens to us often. I kind of hate the assumption, because we’re not 100% sure if we’ll even have kids yet. My next goal in life is to get a dog, haha.

I think a lot of people are curious AND they aren’t sure what else to ask newlyweds.

Several of my best friends got pregnant recently and I was crushed that I didn’t know that they were hoping to have a kid soon. Idk I guess I just figured they’d mention that they want kids or something like that. It seemed to come out of the blue. I feel like most people talk about “thinking about getting pregnant” before it happens, just like most people tell their friend that they’re in love and they think an engagement might happen soon.

Yeah, I got that a lot at my wedding. I just smiled. I am pregnant but not sharing the news with everyone so it was like our little secret. lol
