@cali_cat:  I love this.  This has been my plan to say, and I have been hoping it would work.  Glad it has worked for you.

@cali_cat:  Great response! Also, I would flat out lie if anyone pressed the issue. It’s no one’s business until you’re ready!

@sunshinebee:  That’s a good response! I also just straight up lied to people, and I didn’t feel bad about it. It’s not their business! Also, when someone said something to me like “Oh I had a dream you were pregnant,” I would just say ha ha oh that’s so weird… but not deny it.

At our wedding I was 6w3d! I got asked by a friend, and flat out lied to him, and said ‘No, I’m just not drinking because we have 13 hours of driving tomorrow!” And family friends asked that night when we were going to start trying, I just said “Probably sooner then later”

@jivet:  Right!? I’m still TTC but when people ask when we are going to start ‘making babies’ I tell them we’re just practicing right now. They usually give this awkward look/laugh like my response was Too Much Information, but really…that’s what they were asking! Lol
