musicluvr325 : I agree it would be weird to have a sit down discussion how my plans to conceive. I wouldn’t do that anyway. But things come up. My mom and I were just discussing my cousin’s wedding early next year. The whole family is super excited and my mom wanted to make travel plans with me. The problem? The wedding is in Miami. I told her I was worried about Zika and don’t think it will be a good idea to go. She understood immediately. There’s also the way my face lights up around baby things in the mall. I feel like its a dead give away.

Discussing your TTC plans is just unnecessary to me. But how long it TTC becomes just like every other mommy topic- how long was your labor, how long did you push, when did baby first sleep through the night, first sit up etc etc etc. Not saying it’s right, but I think they often can’t think of anything else to talk about when they get together. I say this as a mom of 2 and currently pregnant with my 3rd.

beignetwife : I am no where near ready for the planning on a child, yet zika has me worried for my health and the health of a LOOONG down the road child.
I feel like you could just shy away from it. Say things “I would rather not risk my health at the time.” or “just thinking about all the things I will get our futrure child!” and just leave it at that. Not explain why you’re getting extra giddy for it.
