And one that never occurred to me till recently.
Being terrified of falling pregnant because you wouldn’t know how to tell people!
You don’t want to hear “I told you so!” from anyone… nor do you want to have to tell other friends who are trying to get preggers because you know that no matter how happy they are for you, they’ll hate you and your happiness for a while.
As for us.
I still get heartsore when I see baby bumps, and read friends news about their pregnancies… but I’ll get over it.
Currently though, we have lots of friends- and friends of friends- (who do not read my blog) who are finding out about our engagement and us planning our wedding.
Their first question after congratulating us and asking when we’re getting married is whether or not we’re going to have children of our own!!?!!
I’m having a bit of a hard time not losing my temper with these people! Is that the only reason people get married? I don’t fargin think so!!! It’s so annoying!
So instead of smacking people, I’m back to being nonchalant.
I’m back to telling people we’re not interested at all.
I’m back to making like we’re completely self-absorbed and only interested in living our lives the way we want to.
I’m back to saying that since my knucklehead is waaaay over 18 years old, there’s no way I’d even consider having another baby and starting all the feeding-nappies-no-sleep drama from the beginning.
…come play on my rollercoaster…
