Feeling left out :(

All I heard from married ladies when I was in the wedding planning process was, "just wait till you're married, then ALL people will do is ask when you're going to start having kids....it's so annoying!!".  I always just laughed it off and kind of prepared myself for the questions once the wedding was over.  Fast forward to now....we've been married for almost 3 months and NOT ONE PERSON HAS ASKED!! 


Now, most people would think I'd be over joyed at the fact that we're not getting hounded with such questions, but I'm kind of bummed over it.  Is that weird?  The thing is that it seems as though everyone around us is getting pregnant, none of them married and some not even in long term relationships and people still aren't asking us.....we're more prepared than any couple I know!  We've been together for 6 years, we own a home together, we both have great, stable jobs and are in our late 20's (me) and early 30's (DH).  WE feel we're ready and are excited to start trying, but it still bums me out that noboby else seems to think so.  I know it sounds crazy!!  Has anyone else experienced this?

give it a few more months, and they will start asking. only my family asked if we were going to start. I don't like the pressure of TTC. I am sure everyone will be excited once you announce you are pregnant.

Not too many people asked us either. And we actually got lectured by family (prob because we are so young lol) about waiting at least a year before trying.

MIZBIZ!  Why haven't you had a KID yet?   Where is the BABY?  


There, I asked :) :) :)


My parents were asking a while ago (they deny it) but now they've actually backed off a bit.  . .and I kind with people would start pestering us about it a little bit. . .more as a 'nudge' to DH than anything else!


I think it's ok you're disappointed. . .you geared yourself up to tell them no and then nobody is giving you the chance to do just that!  Soon enough I'm sure you won't be hearing the END of it!
