Lol its probably your age and the fact that you are in a long term relationship.

It always happens.

1. So when are you getting married?

2. When are you having a baby?

3. When are you having ANOTHER baby?

Oh I feel your pain!

A few weekends ago I was in a bit of a grouchy mood after travelling all day to my home town and on little sleep. I explained “Sorry, PMSing!”… everyone STILL thought it would be fun to assume I was pregnant.

My step dad asks EVERYONE if they are pregnant. One time my cousin actually was! It is so annoying.. and it will only get worse once we are actually married.

Going to be a long few years of people asking! There was another thread that had some clever responses listed for when people ask if you are pregnant! I might have to start using some of those, LOL!

Good luck dealing with the questions/kittens!

I feel your pain. Darling Husband got a new job a few months back and posted something like “big things happening, life is good” on facebook and his entire fam thought I was pregnant. I had to explain to him that he can’t post vague stuff like that anymore. I had lunch with a friend a few months back and I was like “I have news” and she said “OMG YOU”RE PREGNANT” and I was like “Um no, I got into business school”

It just drives me crazy that my next accomplishment apparently has to be a baby. There are other things for people in their late 20s to be doing.

My girl friends who are married or in long term relationships gets asked that all the time.  My BFF posted on FB that she has great news because she landed a new job.  Everyone started to ask her when she’s due.  *face palm*  //  I’m planning our wedding in 5 mos.  Everyone has been saying, “Why, it’s so soon!” and pausing waiting for me to say something like, “Well, I’m preggers.” No, I’m not pregnant. Thank-you-very-much.  lol

I hated this! Darling Husband and I were actively TTC and every time I turned around someone made a comment about how I must be pregnant. I just wanted to scream and say I wish I was.

I think it’s just par for the course at this time in our lives. This doesn’t bother me, but that’s only because we went for the gold immediately after the wedding and I am, actually, pregnant. 🙂

I’m not even engaged and I’ve had that happen! It’s like, why do the most exciting things in my life have to be about children? Facebook is the worst, mention something good or not feeling well and it’s hop aboard the baby bandwagon.

If kids are what you want then great, but not for me; the only kids I want are ones that have four legs and bark.

Half the reason I work out is so I don’t have DH’s relatives pointedly staring at my lower abdomen at family functions. 

And yes, I’ve seen them do that to other women in the family.

I would never EVER ask anybody that question. some people are desperately TTC and failing and I’m not going to be so rude as to bring up such a painful topic. People are idiots.

First assumption people made, because I’ve married young by cultural standards, was that I married because I was pregnant. After that, it was “oh so you didn’t marry because you’re pregnant? When are you gonna get pregnant?”

*Stabs. Everyone.*

I would just follow up with something really awkward to end the conversation:

Nosy person: “ZOMG RU PREGGERZZZ???”

You: “Nope! Thankfully the condoms have been holding up to the endless pounding Darling Husband gives me every night!”

Ok, maybe not so graphic….but you get the idea:) I’ve gotten this a lot too and it doesn’t really bother me, but I can totally see how it would if you weren’t planning to get started soon.
