"When are you going to get pregnant" — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

"When are you going to get pregnant"

Did anyone else get this all weekend? I'm not upset by it - more annoyed, but I can see it really getting to me if it takes us a year or longer. It seems like every family member we saw this weekend asked us when we're going to get pregnant. I find it really rude but I just smile politely and laugh.

No one knows we're trying.  

It's the worst when my grandma plants the guilt trip on me that she my not be alive to see my kids.  

Rant over....

  • I say we are having problems and that usually shuts them up! sometimes I get angry and have to be blunt.

  • DH and I got it a lot from his side. But literally everyone on his dad's side was KU before getting married or within 2-3 months of marriage, so for us to be married 6 months with nothing is weird to them I guess?
