Have you told people you are ttc? Cause I did... almost two years ago when we decided we wanted a second one. Huge mistake. So now all I hear is "weren't you going to have another?" "Told you parenting is hard, I knew you wouldnt want another" "Is there something wrong with you?" OMG OMG OMG I want to start shooting family members!!! I am just so tired of their interference and annoyingness (is that a word?! lol).
It is kinda hard to vent right now lol or my message would be more aggravating. My 2 yr old is sitting in my lap holding my hand saying 'i love you sweetie' Kinda brings my mood around... lol
We told our families that we're going to TTC after we get married in October, and all I'm hearing, aside from joy from his older sister (she's the mom to the only cousins our kids would currently have and she sees us with hers on a regular basis) is "wait until you're done with school". I KNOW how important school is, and I'm committed to finishing. I know me, and I know how capable I am. It's just frustrating to hear it over and over.
*Thank you Linda (AlexAiden Mommy) for my great siggie!*
Yep. I hear ya Ladies. I'm so not telling our family, other than my Mom who is gung ho for another grandbaby (especially a little girl..LOL!). I really don't want to hear, "but you guys are 36...aren't you a little OLD to be having another baby?" and "WHY? You already have 4 kids between you!" or the "Are you crazy? Why would you want another one?!" So, we're just keeping it quiet and if it happens...then we'll tell em all. Oh, I take it back, my SIL knows about my miscarriage and keeps asking me if I'm pregnant yet or calls to ask if I've taken any more tests. LOL! BTW, she'd love it if we had a girl to play with her 2 little girls (DH's and my family is filled with boys).
None of our families have even really mentioned babies to us.. its the customers at work I can't stand. So many of them are telling me I'm too young to be married, and then guessing that my age is 19, when I'm 24. They then proceed to tell me to wait a few years for babies and blablablabla. I'm like really, I didn't ask for your opinion or advice.. step off!
im sorry to hear about your family troubles...i so get what your saying. but i get the "so when are you having kids?" and omg it makes me irritated and depressed. No one will ever understand how i feel. man it gets me so mad...bc its the same answer everytime. UGHHHH.
We haven't told anyone anything about us ttc... but my ignorant sister in law who thinks shes funny asks us every single time she sees us when we are going to have our 2nd... i just want to smack her and be like we didn't tell you when we were trying for the 1st i'm certainly not going to include you in our sex life for the second.... I literally do ANYTHING i can to get out of having to see her...
awww that sucks. my MIL has now started informing my hubby about different positions to try to conceive. I have no idea why or what she is thinking... but lol I am grateful she hasnt said anything to me as bold as that!
