What do you say to those people who keep making comments like “You gotta get started on those kids! What are you waiting for? When are you going to have a baby? You look so good holding that baby (wink wink).” ??? My gut response is to punch them in the face, and then I remember that that probably wouldn’t be appropriate. I totally understand that they mean well and that they have no idea that we have been trying to combat fertility for quite some time; I know they have no concept of the pain that they are inflicting. I don’t want to be rude, but is there some clever response any of you have come up with to firmly let them know that it’s a really inappropriate question? Suggestions would be much appreciated during this holiday season.
Best to all!
