July 2012 Moms

What's the most annoying question people ask you?

People keep asking me "Are you excited?" What is the appropriate answer to this besides yes? Plus I feel like I should sound super excited as I say this, but since so many people ask it, I don't really sound excited anymore.

Re: What's the most annoying question people ask you?

  • Are you going to abort your baby if your NT results are abnormal? 

    Kidding. Too soon?

  • "Were you guys trying?" Gee let me think... We've been together 7 years, married for 3, we're 28.... Nope. Not trying at all. Some people can be so dumb..

  • "Oh, July - aren't you worried it's going to be so hot?" July is hot?? What???? My planning sucks!

    "Is it a boy or a girl?" (when I was 6 or 7 weeks pregnant)

    "Is your husband excited?" No, he's miserable actually, I tricked him into this.

  • Why aren't you showing yet??

    Is husband excited, what about the rest of your family??

    How did everyone take the news

  • While someone's kids are acting up, they ask us....Are you ready for this? 

    Well, I guess we'd better be, right?!! I just want to play stupid and say....OMG, are kids really like that?? I thought it was going to be all rainbows and butterflies!!

    This made me laugh out loud! I agree with all of these in addition to: "Was it planned?" or "Were you trying?"

    Are you taking your vitamins?

    My MIL keeps asking me that - yesterday she asked if I'd ever heard of something called "folic acid..."

    "I'll love you forever,
    I'll like you for always.
    As long as I'm living,
    my baby you'll be."
  • Agreed with the previous posts about excitement, my husband, the gender.

    Also, I know I am lucky to have not suffered any m/s, but I am done answering "How are you feeling? Nauseous?" and when I respond "No, not at all...some aversions but not sick." I get a "well maybe it hasn't hit yet." Um, I am 13 weeks, don't think I am going to get it...

    I am also done with "What are you plans for work?" 1- it's really not your business and 2- when I tell you I am going to go back to work when the baby is 4.5 months, don't try to convince me to stay home or have my mom watch the baby. Thank you.

  • We're having twins and the first question I get is "do twins run in your family?" They don't, we were on clomid and I get really tired of explaning that all the time.  And then the "advice" everyone wants to offer, that gets really annoying.  First of all everyone's pregnancy and experience is different, and on top of that, I'm having twins, I'm pretty sure that means my experience will be quite a bit different from most.

  • It's not a question, but I get it a lot and it annoys me so much.

    "If this one is a boy, then your family will be complete."  No.  DH and I wanted 2 so whatever comes out of there will complete my family, I don't care if it's a monkey.

  • "How are you feeling?"

    Some people are trying to show concern, others are just nosy.  I've gotten the hot in July question too.  That's why central air was invented.

  • 1.  Were you trying?  (my question back -why does this matter to you?)

    2.  Do you know what it is?  (let's see, I just told you I was 8 weeks pregnant - are you stupid my NURSE friend? -now i'm 13.5 weeks, but still)

    3. (not a question) - OMG you're due in JULY???  woooow, going to be REALLY hot going into the summer.  **I LIVE IN MIAMI - IT'S 85 DEGREES IN THE MIDDLE OF DECEMBER - REALLY????

  • I haven't had too many annoying ones, I'm lucky. But I guess the one I've been getting is "Oooh, July....you know it will be really hot right?" Nooooo...I've never been awake during the summer months .. no idea it got up to 80-90 sometimes...

    Not that we planned based on the season, but I'm thankful that I'm not going to be 9 months prego in the freezing cold when I could slip and fall any moment.  I'll take sunny skies and sundresses any day :)

  • LOL great question!!

    So far the "are you excited?" got old about a month ago. No, I'm dreading this. That's why I'm blabbing about it every 2 seconds.

    But by far for me is "Which do you want a boy or a girl?" OH I CAN CHOOSE!??What am I supposed to say? Well I want a boy, so if its a girl I won't love it as much. (kidding, obviously)

  • Are they natural?  

     

    How do you answer that one?  They're not extra-terrestrial if that's what you're asking :) I don't really feel like telling the world that I took Clomid.   I've started to say that they run in my family distantly.  It's sort of true because my husband's grandfather was a twin (except the father's history has nothing to do with conceiving twins), and it stops that line of questioning.

  • "Do you want a boy or girl?" When I respond with I'd love to have another girl but would be happy with a boy. They say "well you NEED a boy because you already have a girl." My MIL says I need a boy so he can tug at my heart and he can be a momma's boy. Sorry MIL, I'm not you and if I had a boy by the time he left my house he'd know how to cook and do his own laundry.

  • I get are you excited a lot and I hate it.

    I also have been asked if its planned. 

  • Lol - I definitely get the "Do you know what you're having?" questions, and have been getting it since I started to tell family around 6 weeks.  Seriously?  Coming from women who have had babies.  I just don't get it.

  • How does DD feel about all of this? Well honestly, she is two so I don't really think she gets it at all.

     

    Is this your last one? I have no clue. We haven't thought that far ahead.

    I know, right?!! My first pregnancy I started telling people who asked this "not really. DH and I discussed it and we think a puppy would be MUCH more exciting!" 

    I haven't really gotten any stupid questions yet this time around.

    "Everything in moderation. Even moderation."
  • "Aren't you afraid to go into labor/give birth?"  No I think it will be like butterfly's flying out of my a**!  Of course I'm scared!

  • I keep getting, "When do you get to find out what it is?!"

     Uuhhh, it's a baby, and if you're talking about the sex, we don't want to "find out."  Yes, I know that's shocking to you, but we'll learn the sex when the baby is born.

    I have been shocked at how many times I got this one, or some variation, "was it intentional", "did you mean to", etc.

  • Do you know what your having? I had people ask me this at 11 weeks.

     

  • Add me to the "were you trying" group. Also:

    "Twins?!  Wow, what are you going to do??" We thought we'd pick the cutest and send the other one back, duh...

    "Was it IVF?" (From complete strangers!) No, it wasn't, but WTH does it matter if it was?? 

    "Oh if it's a boy and a girl, you're done!" Thanks, I didn't know you were in charge of the usage of my uterus. 

    The worst for me was a coworker who asked me just about every time I saw him what I was going to do about work if I didn't stop getting sick. First off, can I just give this some time to see if it passes like most women? Second, yes I was puking constantly at work for close to three months, but don't you think I'm freaking out on my own enough without you pestering me about what's going to happen every other day??? 

    Those are fairly tame compared to some of the things the rest of you ladies deal with!
