  • I hated that. As soon as dd turned a year old everyone was asking me when I was going to have the next one. I pissed me off because I had recovered from the trauma I had to go through to get the first one here. I'm glad that when this pregnancy is over and people ask when I'm going to have another I can honestly answer NEVER.

    Just start coming up with some really ridiculous answers that make it known that it's not open for discussion. I bet the ladies on here could come up with some real gems for you!

  • I went through that for 7 years prior to my first. I would just smile and say "when we're ready."

  • Thank them for their permission, and ask them to please explain the process to you.

  • I never ask people that because I went through fertility problems myself and I know how frustrating it can be. I don't know why people think that other people's fertility or pregnancy or lack of is their business. I think it's rude. If I were you, I'd just say something like, " When are YOU going to learn to mind your own business?" Best wishes to you. I hope you get pregnant soon!!

  • i'm right there with ya. I have my inlaws side asking..everytime i'm asked i'm really just speechless as to what to say back. Usually i say "we are trying" and leave it at that. They usually don't comment after that.
