When someone asks me I ask them when they are planning on losing weight. It changes the topic super fast!

It’s funny, there are some people that it doesn’t bother me at all when they ask. I have a great friend who can’t wait for us to be preggo together and it makes me happy when she asks. The lady at the store though? Not nearly as happy to hear it from her.

I have to say it’s worse to get asked this when you’re actually TTC. We’re in our first month of TTC and keeping it a secret. When people ask I just say oh, you never know. But when friends ask I have a collection of sarcastic responses to throw their way.

Say “RIGHT FUCKING NOW!” and start frantically humping the person who asked.

Works.

Every.

Time.

Confession:  I once lied to someone and said that we were infertile because I was so offended by their insistence that we have babies.

We have been getting it for YEARS! and we are not even married yet!!! Ugh! for everyone but the most surprising one was about two years ago(we have been together for almost 6 years in 3 months) his dad (EXTREMELY RELIGIOUS so this shocked us) said, “when are you going to start giving me grandkids?” my Fiance response, dont you think we need to get married first? he said.. no! your practically married! Bring on those grandkids! 

last valentines day we Skyped with my parents as we dont live close to any family. My mom had a walker and my dad had a caine! they asked if my Fiance had proposed yet because they dont want to be crippled before we have kids!!! little did they know he already had the ring and he just wanted to kill them hahaha! 🙂 (yes he is super close with them and knew they were kidding)

We are not TTC yet, and won’t be for a good 2 years or so, but we have a bunch of nosy middle aged women at church that we are sure are going to start questioning us around the time of our first wedding anniversary.  My DH is creating all sorts of replies, and his philosophy is if they’re going to ask a question that is that rude, he doesn’t care how rude the reply is.  Some of my favorites are:

“Oh, in a few years.  Say, when are you going to go into a nursing home (or if it’s a woman: have you gone through menopause yet)?”

“Well, now that you brought it up, we’re going to go home right now and hump each other like crazy!”

“I don’t know why it hasn’t happened yet.  I mean, we kiss each other a lot, so I don’t know why she hasn’t gotten pregnant”

@oliviaoblivia:   I love your answer I am going to use that one…. it would STOP that question in its tracks. An offensive question for an offensive answer… why should we be embarrassed we did it right, waited, got married, then had sex…. okay, so I will answer your off the wall question with an answer that makes you think…. I’m never going to ask her that again.. Priceless

TTC isn’t even on Fiance and I’s radar.  I haven’t even decided if I really want kids or not.  I live in an area where people are more traditional and the reaction I get from most people is Marriage=Kids.  When talking with people that aren’t close friends, we tell them  when are getting married and they ask “when are you going to start having kids” My response is *slightly* bitchy, but I just say, “In our world, marriage does not equal kids, and when I get pregnant is when we are going to have kids”  That shuts people up, and they usually change the subject

My friend who is married who wants kids but is struggling the concept of actually TTC (she’s still on BC and can’t make the conscious decision to go off it yet) always says “9+ months!!!!!” She says it kind of excited and people smile.  I wish I could have that reaction.

One would think that since fertility issues aren’t a “hush-hush” issue anymore, that people would be more respectful about asking.  I just can’t wrap my head around why people care so much about someone else having kids, when they aren’t family or super close friends.  I hope that makes sense?
