Hot Topic: Don't Ask Nesties When They're Having a Baby!
It took about a hot second after my wedding for family, friends and nearly complete strangers to start asking me when I was going to have a baby. I know I'm not alone in thinking: TALK TO THE HAND!
Here, Nesties sound off on the “When are you having a baby?" and “Are you pregnant yet?" questions every newlywed doesn't want to hear:
Married for three weeks, and it's already started … last night, my old boss texted me and said someone told him I'm pregnant and congratulations. I called him to find out who, and he wouldn't say, but it's at my old workplace, spreading around that I'm pregnant. FABULOUS!
Ive been married for three years and together for seven, and we get asked on almost a weekly basis from friends and family. People are rude and annoying. You will get used to it.
Ughhhh!! We've been married four years and together 14. We get asked all the time! Most people by now know that I'm not interested in having kids, so the questions are dwindling from some. People did give me at least one year though before they started asking.
We've been married for two years, together for seven, but once the wedding hit, we were constantly asked about having kids (especially by our friends that have kids). After saying no so many times, some of them have gotten the hint … others have not. I'll stick to my dog for now, thanks.
I have to drink CONSTANTLY at family functions now, because people are openly staring at my stomach. Sorry Grandpa.
Our wedding was three days ago. I've already been asked about babies by five different people. Seriously? It still doesn't even feel real — please cool it on children.
I went on vacation a few weeks ago, and seriously lost count of how many times pregnancy/children were brought up. I was somewhere around 15 when I stopped counting. My father-in-law thought it was appropriate to give us a 30-minute lecture on proper parenting and then asked us for a timeline of when we'd be having kids. I said there are certain things we want to achieve first, and my husband said “a year." Really? After we left, I told him there is no need to answer questions about our timeline. Our timeline is when we both feel ready. It's calmed down since then though.
My husband and I got married two weeks ago, and have been asked a few times by various people about our timeline. My answer is, “Whenever I feel like having a life form fall from my vagina!" Most people just stare at me with this stunned look. So far it stopped most people, but I'm betting its only temporary.
People always ask about kids, and then when I say “Not right now" or something to that extent, they counter with, “Well that's okay, how old are you? You're still young." I'm sorry, I didn't know I had to check with you first as to whether it was “okay."
I received [a text] last night from a girl who recently became pregnant with her second child [that said]: “Well get on it!! It's the cool thing to do these days … babies are amazing." AHH!
