Hey honey bunnies!
No, I am not pregnant yet.
I’m beginning to think that my name is “When are you going to have a baby”. Before you get married, everyone is preoccupied with when are you going to get married. The moment after you say “I do”, the focus shifts to your uterus.
Then comes the pressure and advice. Everybody thinks they are baby making experts. The only folks I would consider baby making experts on the Duggars and I’m not trying to take any of their advice. They are not going to have me raising a football team with children. And I never really wanted to turn my uterus into a slip and slide for babies. More power to them, but not over here!So what type of unsolicited advice have we received? Where to start? There is the obsessive charting, temperature taking and 8 million vitamins, supplements and herbal remedies. Then we move on to the food. What we should eat? What we shouldn’t eat? What to wear? And then they have the nerve to tell you to stop drinking alcohol!! I can see once your’e pregnant, but when you are trying? Think about. No really, think about. How many babies (including some of yours) are the result of a night of passion ignited or amplified by libations? If folks stopped drinking, I bet dollars to doughnuts that the birth rate will go down. Did I stumble upon a new form of birth control? Anyway that’s neither here nor there. But you get the point. The unsolicited advice (which I’ve been told continue through pregnancy and at least during the 1st few years of your moppet’s life) is annoying, stressful and counterproductive. Spending all that time even considering some of their lunacy makes my head hurt.So what have we decided to do?
We said “shut the EFF up, gahdamnit” (Remember when Eddie Murphy said that in Vampire in Brooklyn?)
No seriously, we decided to just go with the flow. We are going to do we do best, enjoy each other and have fun. All the stress, all the pressure and unnecessary planning takes away from the fun and sharing of love. When it happens, it happens. It will happen when the time is right. And we will have our baby names ready.
Did you or do you get harassed about procreating? How do you deal with it? Was the craziest baby making tip you ever heard? Are you one of the evil, dirty Q-tips who gives unsolicited advice? If so, stop it! And leave a comment.
