(When announcing my 4th) "You do know what causes that, right?"

My SIL asked me how I was feeling and I told her I was pretty tired. She said, "...and you're having another one?".

"You are done after this...aren't you?"

"Two boys and two girls. Good, you can be done now."

"With all the forms of birth control out there, there is no reason why someone should be pregnant if they don't wanna be."
Well duh lady...we wanted to be!

I had quite a few questionable comments...

But I get the most trouble because we have 2 girls and are actually hoping for another. Everyone assumes that because we have girls we must be hoping for a boy. Everyone says oh ill pray its a boy... Uhh no thanks... Keep the blue wishes to yourself... We want more pink!!

My dad told me "it's hard enough finding someone to watch 2 kids, good luck finding someone to watch 3." So thats a NO from you then?

Or the fact that he sighs everytime he sees my growing belly. -_-

When dh told his mom I was pregnant with my first (we had been married for 5 years by this point) she asked "Are you sure it's yours?"

When pg with my third and my aunt was told she asked "Is this supposed to be good news?"

This time around (#4) I've gotten such lovely comments as...

"Don't you guys know what causes that yet?"

"Your husband needs to find a hobby so you stop getting knocked up."

and my personal favorite, asked by more than one person...

"So who is getting fixed after this one, you or hubby?"

Most of these comments were from complete strangers at my place of work!

My mom said that I'm never going to be able to do anything now with 4 kids. 

"You better hope he never leaves you" is another comment she made.

"You shouldn't have married a Mormon, because he is always going to keep you barefoot and pregnant"

My mother told my sister "She's just trying to get a reaction out of me"

My hubby said, "Oh no, Not again"

With my last pregnancy my boss told me I needed to have an abortion and get my tubes tied.

"Again?!" 

"You know how babies are made, right?"

"Do you know what birth control is?"

"Still trying for that boy, huh?"

"Please tell me this is it!"

"You planned this?!" 

"but you already have so many!"
