Unsolicited Advice #6

To the person who I have heard TWICE ask non-pregnant women when they are due: Do everyone a favor and never, ever ask a woman this question again unless you see a head coming out of her vagina.

Get your head out of my uterus, please.

I have one child, who is four, and would like to have more, but we’re having a little trouble conceiving this time around. People are constantly asking me when we’re going to have another baby, if we want another baby, why don’t we have another baby yet, etc. I know they mean well, but at this point, I just feel like yelling, “If we wanted to have a baby, and it were possible, don’t you think we would have had one by now?

There are two ways to respond to this line of questioning.

Response A:

Nosy person: “Are you going to have more children? Why don’t you have another baby?”

You: “Yes, we do want more kids. We’re actually trying to get pregnant right now. As a matter of fact, we tried last night. For hours. If you know what I mean.” (Wink a couple times here and make a little hand-pumping hip-thrusting motion. Wiggle your eyebrows and raise your palm up for a high five.) “You do know what I mean, right? Oh, yeah, baby, we sure tried.”

Response B:

Nosy person: “Are you going to have more children? Why don’t you have another baby?”

You: “I don’t know.” (Repeat for all subsequent questions until interrogator stops line of questioning.)
