What are some of the most crazy questions that friends or family have asked you concerning your pregnancy?

Last night I was out with some of my homegirls and one of them asks me...
So have you ever had to pee but b/c of the baby you couldnt and then she kicked you in your bladder and you just all of a sudden started peeing?

I was like "WHAT, who thinks of that question besides you!!!!!"

The only ones I get are involving whether we planned this pregnancy. They know we didn't plan Lily's, but they just don't seem to understand that we would want to have a second child two years apart. Somehow my sister doesn't get those questions even though she had her second two years after her first.

The weirdest one I got probably came from one of my coworkers at my old job. I was 2 months pregnant, and he asks me, "So, it's for sure? I mean, you know that you're really pregnant and it's not just like...?" And he just drawls off, leaving the question open. Like, what? Was he asking if I was making it up? I just stared at him like he was crazy, and said, "Of course I know! I'm two months pregnant! I've had ultrasounds and everything!" Men are so dumb sometimes, I swear.

I haven't gotten too many weird questions, but earlier on in the pregnancy my older sister (she has two teenagers) kept referrring to me throwing up (gross) and asking what weird cravings/food aversions I was having. I repeatedly told her that thankfully I never threw up (although I had terrible nausea all the time) and hadn't had any weird food issues. And then each time we would talk the conversation would repeat as if it never happened. Her: "So you probably haven't gained much weight because you're getting sick so much" Me: "Nope, like the last ten times you said that, I haven't gotten sick".

Like Courtney I mainly get questions asking if this was planned. And it very much was! But people seem to think that having kids 19-20 months apart is crazy nowadays or something because they all ask me about it.

But the weirdest goes to my mom (a doctor) who when asked if she had a gender guess before my big u/s asked if we knew what position we were in when we DTD to conceive since that can determine gender. That was awkward. Both DH and I were like "ummm...so no guess from you, we're leaving now"

LOL!! Shelley - ugh, how awkward!! Especially from your mom!!! Its funny though because I found myself in a similar conversation. The person felt my having had IUI might have increased my chances of having a boy. And I guess they were kind of right! But at least the conversation wasn't so cringingly uncomfortable as yours sounds!

(For those who aren't familiar, Y-chromosome swimmers are not as strong as X ones and die off more quickly, so in theory the closer they start off to the egg, the better their odds of "winning the race" and your odds of having a boy than with other DTD positions)

Personally I have had to deal with the "unasked questions" that always hang in the air when I tell people I'm pregnant, since I am single. Sometimes I quickly provide the back up info (yes, it was planned, no, it wasn' a boyfriend, etc. etc.) and sometimes I just have fun leaving them hanging.

One of DH's friends asked me a wierd question about my boobs, followed by a comment on how he had noticed they hadn't changed in size. I was like "What?!" How awkward! Lol.

LOVE my siggy, thank you Meganpixel!!!!!!

I was asked if this pregnancy was planned once. My response was "Ummm the sex was definitely planned, the pregnancy not entirely unexpected"

The weirdest ones I have gotten are: "So when does your belly button pop out?" and "Have your nipples started leaking yet?"

Thank you Katarina for my fabulous siggy!

I haven't gotten too many strange questions. But a weird male coworker who's like 19 did ask me how much I spent on pregnancy tests. I'm pretty sure this guy is gay so its not like he needed to know for his gf or anything. Maybe he was just making conversation, but I was like uh what. And of course my best friend who's never been pregnant wanted to know what pregnant sex is really like! But that wasn't too strange. We went through nursing school together and during the maternity section always talked about how weird that would be! So now that I know she was curious!
